Hoping for rain at Magny-Cours

Michael Schumacher, Ralf Schumacher, Magny-Cours, 1999“Rain is the only thing that can create racing around Magny-Cours,” I wrote in the Grand Prix preview yesterday – and it looks like we might actually get some.

The five-day weather forecast for Nevers currently claims there will be showers on Sunday and possible Friday and Saturday as well.

In the 16-year history of the French Grand Prix at Magny-Cours the best races have always been when it’s rained – 1992 and 1999.

Fingers crossed for more of the same in 2007…

    1. Please!, we want rain!, like Hungary 2006!

      Greetings from Chile

    2. I would like to see Hamilton on the rain.

    3. Valy, he had some practice on Sunday! not sure if he’s actually tested in wet conditions yet, has he? the simulator aside of course.

    4. It was going to rain in Malaysia and then in Monaco and now at Magny-Cours.Third time lucky maybe?

      Rain or shine, I think it will be a tight race. I’m hoping for rain though…Valy’s got a point, let’s see what Hamilton can do on a rain-soaked track in an F1 car.

    6. In Malaysia it did rain and heavy… In the night, and then during the race as well, only the clouds were everywhere except the nice blue sunny area right above the track :-)

    7. Thunderstorms now forecast, 60% chance of precipitation…

    8. Rain is great! :-)

      Me having to miss the first wet race of the season is not great! :-(

    9. Now 80% chance of precipitation according to weather.com

    10. Lewis was said to be good on the wet when in GP2, so here’s hopping for the same in F1.
