Yeah yeah first day already happened. I thought this was set to post but apparently I just saved it instead. So now I will update it to include today’s events.
LOTS OF RAIN.
LOTS OF TRAFFIC.
So much rain and traffic, up to 30,000 people might not be allowed in for qualifying if they have passes to park on grass lots at the circuit. Though because F1 fans are the best kind of people, there is an effort underway to get people to rideshare and get less cars on the road outside the circuit.
Grosjean was fastest in the first drenching practice, and Hamilton fastest in the second. Thankfully the cars went out on track unlike other times it’s raining, well, because here it’s never going to stop raining.
Everything else then!
Saturday July 7
Final Practice Session: 5:00am
Sunday July 8
All times Eastern. In the US, you can watch the second practice session and the qualifying session on SPEED, and the other two practice sessions on their website.
**THE RACE WILL NOT BE SHOWN LIVE but on a tape delay on Fox at 2pm on July 8.
Last year’s winner: Fernando Alonso
What to expect: Rain.
Weather: See above.
Tires: We should probably just expect wets.
DRS: Same as last year, though there’s no telling it’ll ever even be used. Because rain.
