I live fairly close to Silverstone, other years I've watched the race and when it's started to rain there I knew I'd be getting rain in about an hour or so. Why does this matter? Simple, my weather forecast for next weekend currently reads as follows:

Friday 7th August: 31C clear blue skies and sunshine
Saturday 8th August: 31C clear blue skies and sunshine
Sunday 9th August: 27C clear blue skies and sunshine

That will be two races at Silverstone and not a drop of rain. I know, you're shocked stunned and amazed aren't you? :haha:
Just so you all know, and to prevent confusion, I am indeed a woman ;)

Oh I don't know, the last time I visited London it was actually sunny for a change, so it's not completely unheard of.

Just confirms my suspicion that they invented CoViD to replace the real Formula One with a computer game! Just look at these pictures from another thread, that's not photographs, no way!!! It's really high quality CGI, and it's the result of two 14-year-olds having a go in a simulator!

They can't even get the crash physics right! :rolleyes:

Two Silverstone weekends in a row, and not a spot of rain - ha! You can't fool me!

Actually at the moment I wish it would rain, my garden really needs it ;)

I am hoping this race will be exciting without having to rely on punctures. I know, you can but hope eh?

We have plenty of rain happening now and forecast for the next couple of days.... plus it was our coldest day recorded this year, and even produced a hailstorm earlier.

*I married Miss Right. Just didn't know her first name was Always

Yeah I have a friend in Canberra and it's amazing how our weather is often completely opposite. When I have unseasonably hot and dry he gets it unseasonably cold and/or wet and vice versa. Basically we both seem to complain about our weather at the same time, and we're both okay with what we're getting at the same time too.

You just had your coldest day, we just had our 3rd hottest ever day and more heat coming this weekend, so watch out for more cold. Sorry @Everso Biggyballies
