Despite some rain on Wednesday, the weather report for this weekend's Australian grand prix weekend looks warm and dry.

However, the only rookie in the 2009 field, Toro Rosso's 20-year-old Swiss Sebastien Buemi, revealed that his information is slightly different.

Asked by the Swiss morning newspaper Le Matin how he is feeling ahead of his grand prix debut, Buemi said in Melbourne: "I believe I am fully prepared, even though as a team we would have preferred more tests with the new car.

"But there is nothing more we can do about it, we will have to make the best of what we have. However it appears that it will rain on Sunday -- that could help us," he revealed during a shopping outing in the city.

Thursday and Friday should be sunny and in the 20s, before clouds move above Melbourne for qualifying and race days.

However, rain is not widely forecast.
