Canadian Grand Prix weather update: What is the F1 race forecast like?

Conditions have been extremely changeable in Montreal so far this weekend, from hailstorms to sunshine, but is rain forecast for Sunday? Here’s an updated weather forecast for Sunday’s 2024 Canadian GP

-

The 2024 Canadian Grand Prix is set to experience challenging weather conditions, adding an unpredictable element to the race at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal. 

The weather forecast indicates a persistent pattern of light rain, drizzle, and overcast skies, which could significantly impact race strategies and outcomes. The practice sessions and qualifying for the 2024 Canadian GP have already demonstrated the impact of the weather on performance.

During practice, drivers struggled with intermittent rain showers, resulting in several incidents and off-track excursions. The damp conditions forced teams to make quick adjustments to their setups, focusing on maximising grip and stability on the wet surface.

Qualifying was equally challenging, with changing weather conditions affecting tyre performance and lap times.

As the race day progresses, the forecast suggests a continued threat of rain and thunderstorms. Teams will need to remain vigilant, monitoring weather updates and making strategic decisions to cope with the unpredictable conditions.
