Another wet weekend is forecast for the 2010 Hungarian Grand Prix after weather played a part in last weekend's German Grand Prix.

After rain intervened on the Friday and Saturday at Hockenheim, forecasters now expect the same sort of weather to feature at the Hungaroring. Several cars slithered off the Hockenheim circuit last Friday, limiting the amount of testing for some of the teams. On the positive side, teams will know what to expect in terms of set-up and tyre use after last weekend.

An official report by Ferrari on Wednesday indicated that rain is forecast for Friday, thunderstorms on Saturday and perhaps a drier day for the race.

Another weather report backed the Italian team's forecast, predicting a 50-50 probability of a dry race.

The Hungarian Grand Prix, staged at the Hungaroring in Mogyorod about 20 kilometres north of Budapest, is accustomed to seeing hot and dry weather at this time of the year.
