Brazilian GP Weather: What's in store for the drivers at Interlagos?

Predicting the Interlagos weather is difficult, but the early forecasts suggest rain could play some part in the running of the 2022 Brazilian GP.

The Interlagos Circuit has a host of classic wet F1 races to choose from, and the prospect of another rain-affected race cannot be ruled out.

According to our friends at WeerOnline.nl, the temperatures in Sao Paolo will gradually be increasing as we head towards the Grand Prix weekend, with temperatures in the mid-to-high twenties (Celsius) expected.

Early forecasts suggest that Friday could be the wettest day, which would have increased significance for this Grand Prix weekend.

Due to the Sprint race format, qualifying will take place on the Friday, the day with the greatest chance of rain.

What about the rest of the weekend?

Saturday is currently forecasted to be the driest day of the weekend, meaning the second (and final) practice and Sprint race are very likely to be run in slick-tyre conditions, but adverse weather cannot be ruled out completely.

After that, the chances of rain will increase again on Sunday. WeerOnline.nl currently believe the chances of rain to be somewhere in between Friday (very likely) and Saturday's (not very likely) predictions.

Could this make for a race with changeable conditions? We'll bring you the updates to the forecasts as we receive them.

At the Mexico City Grand Prix, McLaren became the first team to complete a sub-two second pit-stop since the introduction of the new F1 pit-stop regulations, changing all four tyres on Daniel Ricciardo's car in 1.98 seconds.

So how did the team do this, and what changes have been made to F1's pit-stop procedure in the last couple of years?
