Welcome back to our 2003 German Grand Prix coverage from Hockenheim.

As expected, it's going to be another very hot day, with a temperature high in upper 20s (Celsius). This could again favour the Michelin-shod cars, as it appeared to yesterday.

The weather pattern is expected to hold for the remainder of the weekend, as the possibility of scattered thunderstorms on race day has now receded.

The official forecast predicts zero chance of rain tomorrow, and a temperature of 33 degrees, which could play a key part in the tyre battle and therefore the outcome of the race.
