Spanish GP weather: What is the forecast this weekend?

Spanish Grand Prix

The Spanish Grand Prix returns for another year this weekend as the Circuit de Catalunya plays host to round six of the 2022 Formula 1 World Championship.

It’s a track that the drivers and teams are familiar with given it’s been on the calendar since the early 90s and down to the fact that winter testing is regularly held there, as it was back in February.

Now we’re in May, we get a good indicator of just where the teams are in terms of the progress they have made since testing, whilst a host of upgrades are going to be introduced to the cars up and down the paddock.

What will the weather be doing in Barcelona after a gruelling race in Miami last time out, though? We take a look now…

Friday

We’re looking on course for a dry, bright and warm weekend in Barcelona, with Friday seeing highs of 25C according to current forecasts.

It’s the perfect opportunity for teams to get plenty of running in during practice, then, as they look to garner important data for the race weekend.

Saturday

On Saturday, things will remain warm and dry with highs potentially up to 27C.

The weekend will see a maximum chance of rain at 5%, whilst the wind might slightly pick up to around 20km/h over the course of Saturday and Sunday for qualifying and then the race.

Sunday

Sunday continues the theme of warm, settled weather in Barcelona and the surrounding area.

As with Saturday, there are set to be highs of 27C, a minimal chance of rain and a slight breeze.

We’ve got very predictable weather conditions for the Spanish Grand Prix weekend, then, but let’s hope the race is a bit more dramatic!
