Rain could also affect Canadian GP

Following the changeable weather for the eventful Monaco grand prix nearly two weeks ago, it emerges that rain could also affect formula one in Canada.

Despite the teams and drivers having crossed the Atlantic for round seven of the 2008 championship, local forecasts are calling for likely showers on Thursday and Friday at the scene of the event at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, located on the man-made Ile Notre Dame near downtown Montreal.

While the chance of light rain on Friday is relatively high, though – 60 per cent – the likelihood of rain should halve on the decisive qualifying and race days.

The entire weekend, however, is likely to be mild and overcast, with temperatures in the very low 20s (C).
