Brazilian GP Weather: Latest forecast for F1 race at Interlagos

Max Verstappen aims for yet another Formula 1 win at the 2023 Brazilian Grand Prix


Rain is expected at Interlagos over the 2023 Brazilian Grand Prix weekend, but the race itself on Sunday should escape any wet weather, though running on Friday could be interrupted, as well as that on Saturday. 

This, along with the fact it is the final sprint weekend of the 2023 Formula 1 season, means teams may well head into the Brazilian GP with little to no data on long stints, and the various tyre compounds. 

Max Verstappen has won 16 races so far this season and Red Bull have emerged victorious in all but one – the Singapore GP – though it must be remembered that Mercedes were dominant in the Brazilian GP last year, so we might see another different winner at Interlagos. 

Friday F1 Weather: Practice 1 and Qualifying

Friday at Interlagos is expected to be the worst in terms of weather. Rain is due over the circuit from around 11:00 local time, and should get heavier over the afternoon just in time for Qualifying. 

Temperatures will be in the high 20s, with indications it could top 30 degrees Celsius by mid-afternoon. A 25 km/h northwesterly wind is also forecast with gusts reaching 52 km/h, which could cause drivers some problems. 

Humidity is expected to be between 50-60 percent.

Saturday F1 Weather: Sprint Shootout and Sprint Race

Saturday’s weather at Interlagos will be noticeably cooler, with temperatures only reaching 24 degrees Celsius in time for the Sprint Shootout and Sprint Race. There is also a 40 percent chance of rain in the morning, but by the afternoon this clear for sunny skies. 

Compared to Friday, the wind direction will change to a south-southwesterly wind, with speeds of between 14-16 km/h. Gusts could still reach 40 km/h. 

Humidity is also set to remain between 50-60 percent throughout the morning and afternoon.

Sunday F1 Weather: 2023 Brazilian GP

The weather for the 2023 Brazilian GP will see cloudy skies punctuation with sunny intervals. The chance of rain for the race is just 10 percent. 

Temperatures though, are set to be even cooler at 19 degrees Celsius which is a 10 point drop from Friday. It will also be more humid at around 65 percent at lights out. 

The wind speed will be around 18 km/h and again from a south-southwesterly direction, with gusts reaching 40km/h during the race.
