Weather at Interlagos

Saturday is currently forecasted to be the driest day of the weekend. This eventually means the second and final practice of the Sprint race will almost certainly be run on slick tyres.

The chances of rain will then rise again on Sunday. WeerOnline.nl currently predicts that rain will fall somewhere between Friday’s (very likely) and Saturday’s (not very likely) predictions. Could this lead to a race with unpredictable weather?

A few fans have grown tired of the delays and uncertainty caused by rain this season. However reactions to these early forecasts are mixed. Still, there’s plenty of time for weather forecasts to change, so it’ll be interesting to see how much if any, rain falls this weekend.
