More rain is expected today in Montreal where the 2013 Formula One Canadian Grand Prix is being held.
Yesterday’s qualifying session was affected by damp conditions and the current forecast for today’s race isn’t looking good. We’re most likely going to see Pirelli’s Cinturato Green intermediate and Cinturato Blue wet tires out again.
Humidity is a high 90 percent and the chance of more showers is also high. The skies look to be cloudy and peak temperatures are only expected to reach 73 degrees F (23 degrees C).
When it’s wet, the tension and complication all goes up a notch or two and the fact that the level of rain tends to keep changing makes life even tougher for teams. As we saw during qualifying yesterday, drivers were facing a serious lack of grip around the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve road course.
At the front of the grid will be Red Bull Racing’s Sebastian Vettel and Mercedes AMG’s Lewis Hamilton. Behind them will be Williams’ Valtteri Bottas and Mercedes AMG’s other driver Nico Rosberg.
Going into the race, Sebastian Vettel remains at the top of the Drivers’ Championship with 107 points, followed by Lotus’ Kimi Räikkönen in second with 86 points and Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso in third with 78 points.
In the Constructors’ Championship, Red Bull Racing remains the clear leader with 164 points, followed by Ferrari in second with 123 points and Lotus not far behind with 112 points._______________________________________
