Bah! Rain in Bahrain

Sunday morning in Bahrain saw high winds and rain, a very rare occurrence in the region which has annual rainfall of less than three inches. The weather is not supposed to continue all day with forecasts of better weather in the afternoon. However there has been enough rain to change the track slightly and the winds are very high which will mean that sand will have been blown onto the track. Thus the F1 cars will be running in very different conditions to those of practice and qualifying.
