Latest weather forecast for F1 Russian Grand Prix at Sochi

    The Russian GP is due to be run between September 24-26 at Sochi, and the latest weather forecast puts rain in the picture

    Sochi has a maximum capacity of just under 30,000 seats available each day – the capacity pre-COVID was 55,000 – with attendance on race day expected to be a sell out.

    Saturday, Practice 3 and Qualifying

    Saturday’s practice session could well see heavy rain which is forecast for the morning, with 20mm expected by mid-afternoon. Conditions are likely to improve with a strong southerly wind and temperatures of around 18 degrees Celsius. The rain should ease off a little by the start of Qualifying. 

    Sunday, Russian GP Race Weather

    Sunday’s F1 Russian GP will be partly cloudy with a dry race expected, but there is a small chance of showers throughout. There will be a moderate southerly wind and expected temperatures of around 21 degrees Celsius for the race.
