So it looks like we're in for more unsettled weather, expected to some extent but I'd rather a dry weekend.

Depending on sat/sun weather i think I might watch it in sky+ so I can ff if needed. Not getting out of bed to watch it rain

Don't know how I missed it but this could probibly be moved to the build up thread..

why do people complain of safety cars , red flags and delaying ? its
1-major visiblity problems (reported by the drivers not the fia) (hamilton in silverstone 2012 when he said he didnt see kobayashi in front of him and was heading straight to his a**.
2-aquaplaning due to standing water : the driver is in full throttle in full control , the next thing he knows he is buried in a gravel trap or hugging the wall .

what ?

I'm complaining about my viewing pleasure... Quite inconsiderate of the weather in my opinion.

I can remember some years when F1 fans would have danced naked around their houses even for a small drop of water during the quali or race.

THIS! Especially in the nineties, early noughties dry races were boring as fk, and turning on the tv with a wet soaking track was a gift from heaven. Today the notion of rain clenches my hind parts for delay, lots of sc cars or worse.

Let's watch films/whatever you want until 2am, when wake up after 11am (10am in the UK).

That is for everyone who is crying about rain, Pirellis, DRS, KERS, Red Bull dominance...

Because F1 has become too sensitive to rain. A reasonable downpour used to add a lot of excitement to races and displayed the drivers car control in the wet. Now it usually means none of that, and we're reduced to waiting for a 90% dry track or laps behind the safety car.

I'm not saying they should drive in extreme conditions, I'm saying that any water on the track now means the race is halted.

Too right.

A few years back Rosberg and Williams gambled on a full wet setup on saturday, to reap rewards on a 100% sure wet sunday. The next day it was raining and Charlie Whiting suspended the race, so long that when the cars went out again everybody went on intermediates and Williams gamble was lost. Its days like that I need to contain myself to not smash the tv up out of sheer frustration and anger.

Metcheck has a page devoted to weather at F1 circuits - Just ignore the dates and/or labels!

10 years ago I'd say: Great, this one is Senna's. Now I say s**t, long delay, may be cancelation today.

People still think the 90s were 10 years ago.

It's worse when they SC or red flag it and then once they eventually go back racing (after 4023 laps behind the SC) drivers are going onto inters within a lap.

I hope it rains hard and they will not even start. Then finally in sheer embarrassment all stoned asses in race control free their chairs.
