The British Grand Prix suffered two days of rain and terrible mud with flooded roads and car parks, fans warned to stay away from practice sessions and interrupted qualifying, but on the day of the race itself the weather was dry – and the race was won by popular Aussie Mark Webber. Wimbledon managed to get all its finals completed on time by Sunday – the new closable roof makes a huge difference in a summer of real downpours - but Scotland’s Andy Murray lost out in the final to Roger Federer – despite going up one set – although there was some cheer for the Brits as in the men’s doubles final Jonathan Marray was one half of the winning pair. T-in-the-Park, Scotland’s 85,000 capacity festival, returned to something approaching normal service on the final day (Sunday) after torrential rain on Saturday threatened to turn the festival into a wash-out. The site had been transformed into a quagmire as rain fell almost continuously from the early hours of Saturday until the evening, forcing the temporary closure of the Slam Tent during the day, which normally hosts dance acts, which had become flooded, while parts of the site were reduced to lakes of sludge.
