Welcome to the fourth round of the 2007 FIA Formula One World Championship, the Spanish Grand Prix at Barcelona’s Circuit de Catalunya, which kicks off the first European leg of the season.

Despite some rain during last week’s test at the venue, the forecast for the weekend looks settled. It will be sunny from Thursday through to Sunday, with only a 10 percent chance of rain on the first three days rising to 20 percent by race day.

Thursday will be sunny with an ambient temperature high of 24 degrees Celsius. That will drop slightly to 22 on Friday, 23 on Saturday, and 22 again on Sunday.

The race will run over 66 laps or 307.104 kilometres (190.834 miles) and will start at 1400 hours local time, which is 1200 GMT.
