We’ve had some pretty exciting racing on dry tracks recently, which has been great but maybe it’s time for a bit of rain to factor in a Grand Prix? As you’ll know all too well, the Brazilian GP has seen its fair share of wet races with previous GPs being delayed, starting behind and often featuring safety cars.
Looking ahead at the weather for the next five days, it’s looking rather ominous – sunny all week with a touch of cloud on Saturday and then suddenly a 60% chance of rain on Sunday, the day where the 2012 championship will be decided. As if this finale wasn’t exciting enough already.
The question is will this favour either Alonso or Vettel or neither of them – it’s tricky, they’ve both had superb performances in tricky conditions (who can forget Seb’s 2008 performance at Monza in a Toro Rosso!), but then it’s also a matter of the other 22 cars, wet tracks and changeable conditions can quickly turn a race on it’s head with mistakes, crashes and accidents far more likely to occur.
Ferrari and Red Bull – get your weather and strategy men on standby, they may just win the drivers title for you…
Update: IT WILL BE WET ON SUNDAY FOR THE GRAND PRIX!
