Well, it’s less than 24 hours until the first practice session of 2012 Formula One season gets underway. Thursday saw steady rainfall for most of the day, which is expected to continue on Friday before clearing away, leaving a dry and sunny Sunday.¬†

With the Albert Park circuit providing a low-grip surface, it really appears to be a lottery as to who will be where come ¬†practice, qualifying and the race. However, it’s worth bearing in mind that during the Barcelona tests where it was cool and sunny (ergo, a low-grip track surface), both Lotus and Sauber posted very quick times. Not a 100% indicator of form, naturally. But keep an eye on the midfield triumvirate of the aforementioned and a resurgent Mercedes. I predict a strong showing.¬†
