The weather forecast for race day at Monza predicted a 'possibility' of rain. That possibility became reality and it's been raining heavily since early this morning, causing some consternation. The cars were running in dry set up for yesterday's qualifying, which is not suitable for the current conditions.

Teams and stewards are considering what changes may be needed if the weather doesn't improve. The parc fermé rules between qualifying and the race mean the cars cannot be altered, but due to the conditions the stewards may make allowances.

The last time it rained at Monza during the GP was in 1981 and there hasn't been a wet race this season. Michael Schumacher isn't bothered: "With this kind of weather it will be interesting for sure," he said. "I don't mind that it rains at all."
