Indy 500: Drivers forced to chill out on Tuesday

Temperatures are set to pick up markedly on Thursday and Friday and get into the 70s - much more what everyone is expecting from Indianapolis in mid-May, and the reason why pressing the issue of testing in Tuesday's cold conditions is really not justified. There's also more sunshine and a decreasing chance of rain as the week progresses, although the increasingly hot weather might set off scattered thunderstorms in the area over the weekend for Pole Day and Bump Day.

A lot of teams who fear sitting on the bubble come Sunday are fervently hoping that the forecasts are proved right, and that the Greatest Spectacle in Motor Racing can finally start getting down to some serious practice over the next few days.
