The Qatar Grand Prix pushed the 20 drivers on the Formula One grid ‘beyond their limits’ last weekend with a scorching track temperature and high humidity affecting more than half of those who took part. This year’s Bahrain Grand Prix had a track temperature of just over 30 degrees, with an air temperature of 27.5 – some 15 degrees lower than the 2005 race at the same circuit. Both Brazil and Australia have held races with a higher temperature than that of Qatar. This year’s Australian Grand Prix – held in the same month as 2008 – had considerably cooler temperatures of 19 degrees. Miami’s race had an air temperature averaging 29 degrees during the race, while the track temperature fluctuated between 35 and 43 degrees. This year’s race was still one of the coldest of the season with an air temperature of 19 degrees and track temperature averaging 30 degrees. The British Grand Prix typically ranges from 15 to 25 degrees on average with this year’s race seeing a temperature of 21 degrees. May’s Monaco Grand Prix saw temperatures ranging from 23 to 28 degrees (27 to 40 degrees track).
