Wet start to the Montreal weekend


Formula 1 could be in for a wet start to the Canadian GP weekend, however, temperatures will rise ahead of Sunday's race.

Round seven of the F1 Championship will take place this weekend at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal.

And like the previous outing in Monaco, Friday's practices could be blighted by rain.

Although Friday's high is 22'C, there is a 44 percent chance of rain during FP1 while heavier showers are forecast for late in the afternoon.

The rain will clear up overnight with a dry but cool 21'C expected on Saturday.

The clouds will return for Sunday's race, where the high will be 23'C, but it should remain dry.
