The previous ones, including the Formula One Grand Prix in November and the MotoGP last month, had days that were either a little chilly or pleasant. This weekend, the temperatures are supposed to be above 90 degrees at the circuit.
For fans, that means bring the sunscreen. For drivers, it’s more of a concern.
