Growing chance of rain on race day

2011 Brazilian Grand Prix weatherPosted on | Author Keith Collantine

A very wet qualifying session at Interlagos in 2009

This weekend’s race was originally expected to be dry. But revised forecasts indicate a chance of rain.

Heavy storms are a regular feature in the area. They are often unpredictable, but the early indication is rain could affect the final race of the season.

Wet weather has been a feature of several recent events here, including the dramatic 2008 title-decider and the rain-hit qualifying session in 2009.

The Brazilian Grand Prix is being held three weeks later than last year, but the weather is expected to follow its usual pattern.

Temperatures will be in the mid-20s in the days prior to the race, but a slight fall in temperature is expected on Sunday.

The forecast is likely to change in the run-up to Sunday so make sure to join us on F1 Fanatic live during every session for updates.

If you’re in the area and can supply any further information on the weather, please do so in the comments.
