Heavy rain for Malaysia
Concerns about light

Apr.1 (GMM) Nico Rosberg's fears about fading light combined with heavy rain look set to be realised at the Malaysian grand prix this weekend.

"If the monsoon comes down, the race is going to have to be stopped," the German driver said this week.

The Malaysian Meteorological Department is predicting thunderstorms at Sepang all week, worsening between Friday and Sunday.

Combined with the 5pm start, to better suit the bulk European TV audience, there is a risk the skies above the Sepang circuit could be very dark.

"I hope for a safe race but on Monday it rained heavily during the predicted race duration," track boss Razlan Razali told the local Star newspaper.
