Weather forecast as of June 1

It can get wet, but it doesn’t have to. The weather over Europe is fickle and difficult to predict. This is also the case in Le Castellet in early June, although the probability of rain is very high. A look at the individual days reveals that start time plays an important role.

On Friday, the free practice begins in the early afternoon, when the showers are over, which is expected to start flowing in the morning with a probability of up to 70 percent. The afternoon also bodes well for qualifying conditions. The probability of rain in Saturday’s qualifying is expected to be 40 percent, and the probability of rain drops significantly at the start of the race.
