Rain appears unlikely to affect this weekend's running of the Italian Grand Prix.

Arriving separately in the region near Milan late on Wednesday, Mark Webber and Heikki Kovalainen commented on heavy rain.

"It's raining in Monza big time and thundering as well, hope it stays like this all weekend," enthused Lotus driver Kovalainen.

It appears the Finn's wishes will not come true.

A spell of mild, dry and sunny weather is forecast across all three days of the Grand Prix weekend, with only a low chance of a light shower on Friday.

And according to the forecast early on Thursday, the chance of rain for Saturday and Sunday diminishes to less than 5 per cent on both decisive days.
