South Korea Weather could be similar to Suzuka Virgin Racing Team Principal John Booth believes that this weekend’s weather conditions in Korea could be similar to those seen in Japan two weekends ago, albeit not quite as spectacular; this coupled with a brand-new track surface could be a recipe for drama, according to the Englishman.
With no track data having been collected from Yeongam’s Korea International Circuit as yet, all teams will start with clean sheets as practice begins on Friday morning.
“We have been busy in recent months working with a simulation of the new track from the data that has been provided and our own calculations,” Booth explains.
“Timo (Glock) and Lucas (di Grassi) have done countless virtual race distances of the circuit already, but of course there is no substitute for turning a wheel for the first time when free practice gets underway on Friday.
“The biggest unknown quantity will of course be the asphalt, which was only laid a few weeks ago and will therefore be very ‘green’.”
However, John is not expecting an all-dry weekend. “With the weather conditions expected to be similar to Suzuka – although perhaps not quite as extreme as Saturday - I think we have a very interesting weekend ahead as we work towards finding the optimum setup for the race,” he summed up.
