Oh boy, the Formula 1 season is revving up, and it’s all starting with the 2024 Bahrain Grand Prix. You’d bet your bottom dollar on sunshine, right? But hold up—remember that F2 test that got totally drenched recently?

So, what’s the sky planning for this weekend?

Now, about that F2 winter test—it was a bit of a soggy biscuit. Bahrain, land of the eternal sun (and the occasional sandstorm), got a surprise shower. Teams were there, ready to roll out new cars for a spin, and then, bam! Rain on their parade.

### What’s the weather doing for the Bahrain GP?

F1’s big guns and their speed demons dodged the bullet, though. Bahrain threw a bit of wind their way, but the sun wasn’t shy either. Looks like that’s the mood for the F1 weekend too. Weather.com’s crystal ball shows nada chance of rain.

Friday and Saturday? We’re talking a cool 20 degrees. But Thursday was showing off with some hefty gusts. The wind’s taking a chill pill, though, dropping to 30km/h on Friday and then whispering at 10 km/h by Saturday. Teams, take note. This could mess with your setups and maybe even play tricks at some corners.

So, there you have it. The weather’s playing nice for the F1 circus in Bahrain. Sunshine, a tease of wind, and zero rain dances. Let’s get this show on the road!
