It's raining in Montreal on Saturday morning (GMM) The formula one world has awoken to a wet morning in Montreal. With two and a half hours until the third and final practice session, the rain so far at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve has been light and drizzly.
The weather, which has surprised many experts who expected a mostly fine day, should now remain the same and cool throughout Saturday.
It is bad news for those who on Friday struggled the most with tire graining and degradation on the overly 'green' track surface.
"If it rains, the track will remain green and it will probably be difficult to hold the tires together again, even the harder compound," said Michael Schumacher.
Some paddock pundits are predicting a dry qualifying session.
But amid the current drizzle, it is believed that Sunday's weather could be almost identical in the Canadian city.
