It's not raining at the moment.

Hints of blue in the sky above Interlagos. If I had to guess, I'd say it won't rain. Local guy on TV compound gate says it will.

It rained overnight. It was raining very early morning before sunrise.
Then Sun came out for a while in the morning. Still very unpredictable, but there wont be too heavy downpour. So washout is definitely out of picture. Showers are still expected.

Good... even dry race would be better than SC/Red flags mix.

I reckon the rain will miss the race a bit like 2008, may affect the last couple of laps but nothing more. McLaren's to run away at the front with Webber chasing until such a time he hands his podium slot over to the new 3x on the bounce WDC.

My prediction anyway.

don't forget he wouldn't need to if they were both ahead of Alonso anyway

My prediction is.... even considering Vettel DNF, Alonso has very very slim chances

TVGlobo gives 90 percent chances of rain during the race.

But at the moment, the skies seems pretty clear.

Race in 3 hours plenty of time, although I would love to see a dry start and then at 30% race showers, would mix things up more than everyone starting on wets.

BBC forecast

http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/feeds/20476609

Brightening up all the time here at Interlagos. Latest forecast is for a dry race with a chance of light rain afterwards, or perhaps at end @andrewbensonf1

I'm visiting my mom for the holiday weekend and while she knows I have a bit of a problem with this sport I don't think she quite grasped the severity until a little while ago when the following conversation took place...
Mom: "Why are you straightening your hair? Are you going out tonight?" (I take REALLY good care of my hair and try not to dry/straighten it too often because I've been abusing it with hats and riding and/or driving helmets nearly every day for 20+ years)
Mom: "Then why bother if you're just going to sleep on it?"
Me: "In case I have to take photos doing the seb finger with my red bull 'hat' tomorrow. By the way, could you see if the washing machine is done yet and if so put my RBR shirt in the dryer please?"

:lol: :lol: Love it. And great 'hat'!

I start thinking about omens based on other things going on that I have allowed to become part of pattern recognition associated with what happens in F1. I also create new patterns at times like this. One of my big ones is which mug I drink my coffee out of.

My family are all Formula 1 followers so they're pretty good for these situations, but I'm by far the most involved and get the most anxious and agitated. I'm interstate from them for this weekend and my mum very patiently took a call from me and let me babble about Formula 1 for an hour to help me "fill the time" then said, "I shall get your sister and your father to call when they get home to consume some more time". In the lead up to Abu Dhabi in 2010 I was at my parents' and I was so desperate for distraction I offered to help my mum with the gardening; she nearly died of shock.

My pre race routine starts on the monday before every race when my facebook profile and cover photos are changed to the helmet and podium pics from that race the previous year. Then there's the wednesday team color manicure and selection of appropriate Pirelli wristband compounds. Thursday starts the F1 Playlist on the iPod (which of course includes the big bad wolf...which as I understand it has been blasting from the RBR garage again this morning. THAT is a good sign!). Thurs night is the first of four cans of fizzy drink. Friday night the team clothes come out (this also includes NOT wearing items from other teams - its only okay to wear those on non race weekends, I am very careful about this ever since I wore my BMW Sauber flip flops and Checo came second in Malaysia the next day). Saturdays are about cooking and eating food from wherever the race is, and race day...well thats about it all coming together. Before asking me to go out or make plans, friends first ask "is there a race this weekend? okay never mind". Mostly because I am now famous for rambling about F1 aero development when slightly drunk. My polite friends try to act interested in the differences between Merc, RBR, and Lotus DRS innovations.

I just watched it again Thursday so skipped it this morning. I find the whole thing so deeply unsettling, didn't want to be in that frame of mind for today.

You'd be mental to rule Alonso out of finishing on the podium, which would be enough if Vettel DNFs.

No rain expected during the race. After one week of unanimous forecasts for a rainy Sunday we will have a dry race.

Can't wait now.


Praying everyone makes it through the first corner, would be a massive anti-climax if Alonso dnf on the first corner or something silly like that.

Dry race, Alonso with a wet setup... emmm he'll struggle to finish in the top 10.

It's over Vettel's won the title. Well I'm off to play so Black Ops 2 then the watch the Chelsea/Man City game instead.
