Weather update in Brazil: Heavy rain during Grand Prix

The weather forecast for this weekend suggests that heavy rain could fall all weekend long, meaning that the Grand Prix on Sunday will once again be in the heavy rain.

The past two race weekends have been wet too, but only during the free practice sessions, meaning that both the qualifying and the race itself were under normal conditions. 

In Brazil this weekend, it will be wet all the time - not only on Friday, but on Saturday and Sunday as well.

On the day of the race, the forecast has a 50% chance of rain. Whether this will actually mean that it will rain remains to be seen, as rain has previously been forecast this year for races on days that it actually turned out to be dry. This was the case in Mexico, for example.

Let's hope it will happen anyway, as previous wet races at Interlagos have produced some absolutely classic races. Remember Max Verstappen's spectacular race in 2016?
