Formula One is arriving in the United States for the inaugural Miami Grand Prix this weekend. Fans have witnessed a lot of on-track action and drama during the first four races of the season so far. The reigning world champ Max Verstappen and Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc have won two races each so far. However, Leclerc is ahead of Verstappen in the drivers’ rankings, and the Dutchman would look to change the scenarios in Miami. Mercedes is also trying desperately to get their car back on track and planning on bringing some upgrades during the weekend in Miami. However, there are signs of rainy weather during the weekend which could turn the drama up a notch. After the first wet-dry race in Imola, the latest forecasts suggest that rain might return to test the drivers during Sunday’s race. 

Friday and Saturday’s forecasts predict hot and sunny weather expected from Florida with threats of rain when the race begins on Sunday. This will make it harder for the F1 drivers to control their cars on the track and change tires according to the conditions on the track. If the forecast turns out to be true, the drivers and the teams will have to prepare to bear with wet conditions on Sunday after a dry run on Friday and Saturday.
