It's been quite the weekend so far - I don't think we've seen so many crashes and mechanical gremlins going into a weekend. The race hasn't even started yet, and already we've got drivers out of position and worries over reliability.

Weather update

showers

Hockenheim, Germany, Saturday

20℃

  • Low 17℃
  • Humidity 70%

Light rain showers

Looking at the forecast for 24 hours worth of weather in Germany, it should start the day bright and then gradually get cloudier and more showers will emerge. They'll get heavier and heavier throughout the day, so the question is - what will be hovering over the circuit as the race is about to begin.

Word on the ground:

The clouds are gathering over Hockenheim, although it is still pretty bright. They're not dark though, so rain still v. unlikely.

One to watch

Alonso and Vettel appear to be in a world of their own if the qualifying results are anything to go by. It would have been really great to see Alonso on pole, if only to keep Ferrari happy for a few minutes. It's worth keeping an eye on this battle as the race unfolds.

Predictions please

Will the weather intervene in proceedings? Will Red Bull get another positive result? Will Alonso be able to catch up to Vettel? What will happen further down the field?
