Miami GP weather: Latest forecast for F1 race at Miami International Autodrome

Wet conditions anticipated as Formula 1 heads to Florida for the 2023 Miami Grand Prix


The F1 paddock is heading to Florida this weekend for the second edition of the Miami GP, and the drivers could be facing some tricky weather conditions.

With the Red Bull pair of Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez set to fight for the win once again, the grid is facing some potential environmental challenges, with rain and thunderstorms forecast to hit South Beach.

While the practice sessions and qualifying are likely to escape the worst of the weather, forecasts are suggesting that we could see rain for the race, which would shake up proceedings after a less than exhilarating race last time out at the Azerbaijan GP.

Here is the weather forecast for the 2023 Miami GP.

Friday, Practice 1 and 2

The weather on Friday is expected to be partly cloudy with a slight chance of rain. However, it is unlikely to have a significant impact on the practice sessions. The air temperature will range between 20 and 30 degrees Celsius, providing a humid environment for the drivers and teams.

Saturday, Practice 3 and Qualifying

Saturday’s weather appears to be slightly more favorable, with a reduced chance of rain at 40% during the day. However, thundery showers may develop in the afternoon, which could affect the qualifying session. The temperature is predicted to range from 23 °C to 30 °C, making tire management a critical factor for the teams to consider.

Sunday – Race

The main event on Sunday may be the most challenging day of the weekend, as the probability of rain rises to 70%. Intermittent thundery showers are expected throughout the day, throwing up a host of challenges for the teams on the street circuit.
