Right from the moment the curtains were drawn this morning, the weather for the inaugural Chinese Grand Prix, the 16th round of the FIA Formula One World Championship, remains right on forecast.

Yesterday achieved its anticipated ambient temperature high of 26 degrees Celsius and today it will climb as high as 27. It will be hotter still tomorrow, at 29, with 28 degrees for Sunday, and though there will be some partial cloud it is clearly set to be a weekend of perfect conditions for racing in Shanghai.
