Things were already exciting with Max Verstappen winning pole. To add to that, the French weather authority has predicted a thunderstorm warning during the race on Sunday.
Weather authority’s prediction
“Moderate thunderstorms. Although quite common in the region, local and potentially dangerous phenomena are expected,” the warning stated.
There were predictions for rainfall earlier this weekend too, but without thunderstorms.
Precipitation a possibility
The weather medium stated that summer thunderstorms and heavy wind gusts will possibly be present during the race.
The south of France is already seeing rainfall so we can expect all precipitation to already pass by 14:00. However, it is still to be seen.
