Latest weather forecast for the 2022 Mexican GP

With rain expected to hit the circuit on Saturday, qualifying for the 2022 Mexican Grand Prix could be a thrilling affair

-

This weekend’s Mexican Grand Prix marks the fourth and final race on the North American continent for the 2022 Formula 1 season.

With Max Verstappen and Red Bull claiming the Drivers’ and Constructors’ championships respectively, attention now turns to the championship’s fight for second place.

In the Drivers’ Championship, Verstappen’s teammate Sergio Perez is locked in a fierce duel for second place with Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc. With Perez racing in front of his home crowd, you’d have to back him to challenge for the win or at the very least a spot on the podium.

Despite coming under pressure from Mercedes prior to the summer break, Ferrari has recovered to build a 53-point lead over their challengers. With three races to go, the fight for second in the Constructors’ Championship will go down to the wire.

The race in Mexico City could determine a lot and as always the weather conditions will play a deciding factor in the race’s outcome.

Friday, Practice 1 and Practice 2

The latest weather conditions for Friday indicate that rain might hit the circuit at around 15:00, meaning FP2 could be run in damp conditions.

Air temperatures are set to peak at 26 degrees Celsius, meaning the conditions should be pleasant for the drivers and teams as they bed themselves in for the weekend.

Saturday, Practice 3 and Qualifying

Things are set to get interesting on Saturday, with rain predicted to hit the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez race track just as qualifying is set to get underway.

While the weather report states that the chance of precipitation is 40%, as things stand it is likely that the drivers will have to undertake qualifying in the wet.

Saturday will also witness a high of 24 degrees Celsius, meaning the conditions will be cooler than they were on Friday.

Sunday, Race

Sunday’s race could also see rain with the weather reports indicating a 31% chance of precipitation at around 13:00 with the estimate going up to 42% by around 15:00.

Air temperatures will remain at 24 degrees Celsius, almost mirroring the conditions from Saturday.
