Welcome back to Interlagos, and race day at the Brazilian Grand Prix, the 2006 FIA Formula One World Championship decider.

After Saturday’s sun for qualifying, conditions will be warmer still for the race this afternoon, with a dry road and an expected ambient temperature high of 23 degrees Celsius.

The 4.309 kilometre (2.677 mile) Interlagos circuit is largely unchanged and the race will be run over 71 laps or 305.909 kilometres (190.067 miles). It starts at 1400 hours local time, which is three hours behind GMT.

Fernando Alonso took pole position for Renault last year in 1m 11.988s, while Juan Pablo Montoya won the race for McLaren as team mate Kimi Raikkonen set the fastest lap in 1m 12.268s. The lap record still stands from Montoya’s 2004 time in a Williams in 1m 11.473s.
