2023 Canadian GP weather forecast: Is a 2022 repeat in store?
Formula 1 is back this weekend with the hop over to Montreal for the 2023 Canadian Grand Prix. Round eight of the season, Max Verstappen comes into the weekend looking for back-to-back wins in Canada having claimed his first 12 months ago fending off a late challenge from Carlos Sainz. But could the weather have a surprise in store and derail the world champion's hopes of a fourth straight Grand Prix victory and draw level with Ayrton Senna's tally of 41 career wins? RacingNews365 's weather partners WeerOnline have taken a look at what is in store - and it could be the same as in 2022... Rain on Saturday in Canada? Last June, rain hit Montreal on Saturday leading to a wet Qualifying that provided one of the shocks of the season. Verstappen on pole was no great surprise, but Fernando Alonso sticking the Alpine second for his first front-row start in nearly 10 years, was. And the now-Aston Martin driver might like what is predicted for Saturday this year. It is forecast that rain showers and thunderstorms will be hanging around all day in Montreal, and while the conditions should dry up towards Qualifying, there is still the possibility of some rain in the area. As for the race on Sunday, a clear morning in Montreal is expected to give way to a cloudy afternoon with rain a possibility mid-way through the race. Temperatures are expected to be around the 22-23 degree celsius mark throughout the weekend, with Qualifying and the race getting underway at 16:00pm local time (21:00pm UK) and 14:00pm local (19:00pm UK) on Saturday and Sunday, respectively.
