After a week off, Formula 1 drivers can get ready for another race this week. This weekend the Formula 1 circuit will head to the Spa-Francorchamps circuit, where a rain shower is always lurking.

The Grand Prix of Belgium is about to take place and where this is normally a big Orange party, it will be somewhat different this year. Because of the corona virus the GP of Belgium will be held without an audience and that means that Max Verstappen and Red Bull Racing will have to do without the massive support this year.

Rain in Belgium

Nevertheless, it promises to be an exciting Formula 1 weekend. Above the circuit of Spa-Francorchamps a rain shower can just fall out of the sky and that is also the case for this weekend. No high temperatures to help Mercedes blister, but maybe a shower will cause some commotion?

Friday is still the warmest of the weekend, because according to Weather.com it is still 20 degrees. However, the temperature drops over the weekend, with 18 degrees on Saturdays and 16 degrees on Sundays. In addition to the low temperatures, there is also a chance of rain. On Friday the chance is 50%, on Saturday 60% and on Sunday no less than 80%. Whether the rain falls at the time of the session, however, is still to be seen....
