Opinions here in Interlagos continue to be divided on the weather for this final round of the FIA Formula One World Championship.

Heavy rain - up to 15 mm - is expected today in the region, and the likelihood is calculated at 80 percent. The question is whether the thunderstorm will actually hit Interlagos itself, or merely pass nearby without affecting it.

When it does come, however, the rain is anticipated for about two o’clock, right around the start of the race.
