9 - 11 November; How will the waether affect this year Brazilian Grand Prix?

The Brazilian Grand Prix certainly is a special occasion on the motorsport calendar not least because of the Senna era and the fanatic fans turning Sao Paulo at Interlagos into a festival and carnival atmosphere for the F1 weekend.

The track is not only demanding for drivers, but also on the cars. Interlagos has many changes in elevation and numerous challenging corners. There are only two passing opportunities on the circuit, one at Senna's S at the end of the pit straight and at the Descida do Lago, at the end of the Reta Oposta (back straight).

How does weather affect racing?

Different weather conditions can result in very different races, and Formula 1 teams adapt their strategy accordingly, for example using different tyres in wet conditions, and taking account of cross winds which can cause stability problems at high speeds.
