What’s the weather forecast for the 2023 Sao Paulo Grand Prix?
The Sao Paulo Grand Prix gets under way this weekend, the final part of a triple-header featuring Austin and Mexico City. But after scorching temperatures for the last two weekends, what will the weather be like at Interlagos?
After races in Austin and Mexico City, Sao Paulo is the next stop on the F1 calendar. Max Verstappen comes into this weekend’s Grand Prix off the back of winning the last four races, as the three-time champion looks to extend his record for the most wins in a single season.
But this track is expected to suit Mercedes, so watch out for Lewis Hamilton and George Russell. Hamilton has been in the better form of late, but Russell won here last year and will be looking to see if he can repeat that feat.
Add in the fact that this is a Sprint weekend, and the action should be non-stop. But how much of a part will the weather play? There could be rain showers around on Friday, but as it stands, the Sprint and the Grand Prix look likely to be dry. Read on for all the details of the weather forecast for the 2023 Sao Paulo Grand Prix…
