The weather is set to dominate Wednesday’s test at the Circuit de Catalunya with snow falling overnight and forecast to continue throughout the day.
Although the likes of Lewis Hamilton and Kimi Raikkonen will be eager to get in as much running as possible, it looks as if Mother Nature will have her say.
Wednesday’s high is a bitterly cold 2’C.
The Circuit de Catalunya posted a photograph of the track an hour before the scheduled 9am start.
