SOCHI, RUSSIA - SEPTEMBER 24: A general view of track signage during previews ahead of the F1 Grand

The Russian Grand Prix is almost upon us so it's time to look at the weather forecast for this weekend's race: will it be rain or shine at Sochi?

Russia has never hosted a wet Formula 1 race and with this year's race taking place around its traditional September slot on the calendar, it looks like that run will continue.

The forecast has this weekend down as a largely rain-free affair, with possible showers on Saturday but nothing more adverse currently on the horizon.
