Sao Paolo GP 2022: How is the weather at Interlagos ahead of Brazilian Grand Prix?

The penultimate race of 2022 will kick off this weekend at Interlagos in Sao Paolo. It’s one of the most iconic races on the calendar and will also mark the return of the F1 Sprint. Both World Championships are already settled coming into the Brazilian GP with Max Verstappen winning the Drivers’ Championship and Red Bull winning the Constructors’ Championship.

Last year’s race in Brazil had a lot more excitement leading up to it. Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton were in the midst of an intense Title fight and the race itself provided nail-biting action. Hamilton ended up winning the race by a comfortable margin despite the Red Bull driver throwing everything at him.

This year’s build-up may not be as exciting but the weather may make things interesting. Last year’s Brazilian GP turned out to be a dry outing but this year, rain and thunderstorms are forecasted for all three days. The grid may be shaken up for Saturday’s Sprint race if we are indeed headed toward a wet qualifying session on Friday.
