Welcome to race day for the French Grand Prix at the Circuit de Nevers Magny-Cours, the eighth round of the 2008 FIA Formula One World Championship.

The weather forecast continues to predict thunderstorms, but since Saturday was meant to have heavy rain yet was bone dry and sunny, one might take that with a pinch of salt. An ambient temperature high of 30 degrees Celsius is anticipated.

The race will run over 70 laps of the 4.411 kilometre (2.741 mile) circuit, or 308.586 kilometres (191.755 miles), and will start at 1400, which is 1200 GMT.
