For the practice sessions Friday and qualifying Saturday, track conditions are going to be very hot with no cloud coverage. This is going to cause some extra attention to be put toward tire management throughout the sessions, although we see how much cooler it will be on race day. The main concern for race day will be the wind gusts as the models are agreeing on gusts of up to 28 knots for Sunday.
This is going to make for an exciting first race to kick off the 2021 Formula One season. These varying conditions over the weekend are going to truly test which teams have a well-prepped car as well as which drivers are able to handle them. With the analytics that go into designing a successful F1 car, high wind speeds is not exactly the car's best friend.
The forecast will be updated with changing conditions, but the models have been in agreeance on the forecast for this weekend so far.
