F1 Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix weather forecast - latest today from Imola

Here's what the weather forecast looks like during the 2024 Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix in Imola.

After heavy floods forced the cancellation of the race last year, the iconic Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari circuit is back this season, hosting the Emilia-Romagna GP and marking the first European race on the calendar.

Although the season so far has thrown a few surprises, with two non-Red Bull drivers taking the top step on the podium, Imola will be hoping for no more weather-related surprises as the track returns to the Formula 1 calendar in 2024.

Ferrari's Carlos Sainz started the year strong with a victory in Australia - just two weeks after undergoing surgery in Saudi Arabia, while McLaren's Lando Norris stunned everyone by clinching his maiden race win in the sixth round in Miami.

All eyes are now on Imola to see whether McLaren and Ferrari can maintain a real challenge to Red Bull throughout the course of the season.

Will the upgrades the teams have brought to Italy be enough to close the gap on the dominant Red Bull squad and potentially see another surprise winner, or will Verstappen reclaim his hold on the top step?
