Chance of rain for British GP weekend  UPDATE (GMM)  A damp track greeted drivers at cold Silverstone for the final practice session before qualifying on Saturday.

It rained overnight at the Northamptonshire venue, and another rain shower is predicted for this afternoon -- about the time of the qualifying session at 1pm local.

Brawn has had a low-profile round of practice sessions ahead of the British grand prix, with team boss Ross Brawn predicting the Red Bulls are so quick they're "going to be trouble" this weekend.

Less trouble will be posed by BMW's Robert Kubica, who finished two out of the three practice sessions on Friday and Saturday dead last.

06/18/09 (GMM)  Some weather reports, including the official forecast, are predicting a dry weekend of racing at Silverstone.

The bulletin on F1's official website calls for a "cloudy but dry" British grand prix, after a foggy and dim day at the Northamptonshire venue as the circus convened on Thursday.

The forecast said the three days of track action will be cloudy but dry, with mild temperatures.

Two independent weather predictions, however, said rain is possible, with the highest probability on Friday and Sunday afternoons (When doesn't it rain in England?).

A third forecast said the highest chance of rain - 60 per cent - is for late Saturday afternoon.
