Wet qualifying? Alonso fears repeat of Spa

It is forecast to rain again during a race. Next weekend F1 is in Russia and the weather forecasts predict rain. Especially on Saturday, there is a high probability of rain.

Wet Saturday in Sochi

F1.com Reports that on the Friday sessions there will probably be no rain and during the race the chance is not very high, but there could definitely be showers. For Saturday, there is 80% chance of rain.

Fernando Alonso says to Motorsport-magazin.com that he fears a repeat of the rained-out weekend at Spa. He also remembers heavy rain in Sochi:

"The visibility was very poor then. The track is very flat, you don't have any elevation changes so the water stays down. I remember with that Turn 1, which wasn't really a turn, was really a turn in the rain."
