Studies of various weather charts this week, watching and monitoring the weather for this weekend's United States Grand Prix at Indianapolis, suggest that, if things pan out as predicted, Formula One could see its first wet final qualifying session.

Friday is currently tipped to see an area of high pressure just slipping away from the Indianapolis area, but giving a fine, dry and reasonably sunny day. Saturday, however, introduces an area of low pressure, slipping down from the north, and bringing a band of moderate rain by midday, lasting into the early afternoon.

Sunday remains touch and go at the moment, although it appears as though the rain will clear for race day - even if it could remain cold and damp at the track, potentially playing into the hands of Michael Schumacher and Ferrari, whose Bridgestone tyres prefer the cooler conditions.

Further checks on the various weather systems are continuing, aware that the timing of each system's arrival is subject to change. A final update is scheduled tomorrow [Thursday].
