The final two races of the year are upon us, with the F1 circus rolling into Interlagos this week for the Sao Paulo Grand Prix. But what weather conditions can the drivers expect to face this weekend?

While both Max Verstappen and Red Bull have sealed both titles this year, the battle for second in both the constructors’ and drivers’ championships are yet to be decided. Mercedes are now 40 points behind second-placed Ferrari, while Charles Leclerc is looking to overhaul his five-point deficit to Sergio Perez in the drivers’ standings.

Last year’s Grand Prix weekend was a thriller, as Lewis Hamilton recovered from starting 10th on the grid to make his way through the field, overtaking Verstappen late on to seal his third win in Brazil.
