Several weather forecasts have predicted that there will barely be any sign of cloud across all three days. Temperatures are also predicted to be set for a very comfortable high of 23-to-24 degrees.
Ahead of the race weekend, some teams have announced that they are bringing in big upgrade packages. This could mean a much more intense battle between Ferrari and Red Bull and Mercedes joining the championship fight.
