A rainy week in Brazil

With tyres a vital element in determining success and failure in Formula 1 at the moment, the weather in Sao Paulo is being closely watched by F1 teams in the days before the Brazilian Grand Prix. The news is that it is expected to rain on and off for most of the week with 60% chance of rain on Wednesday and 30% chance on Friday. On Saturday, however, it is due to be sunny with a high of 60-deg F but then on Sunday it will be overcast.

Those are the predictions but, of course, anyone who trusts a weatherman too many days ahead probably needs their head examined.
