Earlier during the week, rain was forecast on all 3 days of the weekend, similar to how it was in Shanghai. This weekend however can expect overcast conditions on Friday and Saturday, with a low chance of a light shower or 2 for Friday's practice session.
The race on Sunday will see the clouds begin to clear and Fuji, with next to no rain predicted for race day. This suits the Meteor and DS cars, who looked to struggle during the wet sessions at Shanghai, where Harding took his maiden pole position in the deluge.
Adrien Simon, Olen Inman and James Harding will all be looking to capitalise on championship leader Halvosen's poor Chinese V-Prix, where he could only notch up one point following the wet qualifying sessions. The 4 drivers are separated by just 11 points in the standings, with Stuart Harrison 21 points off his Danish teammate.
