A fierce storm battered the Interlagos circuit after nightfall on Friday.

Local reports say a grandstand roof at the Senna S was damaged amid the wind, heavy rain, thunder and lightning, with work to repair it complicated by power cuts.

“Repairs will be made overnight, with all necessary measures taken,” said circuit spokesperson Castilho de Andrade. “Certainly there will be no risk to anyone.”

The weather can be tricky in Interlagos, as there is often high temperature and torrential rain. Last year, the hottest track temperatures recorded all season were in Brazil, and this year there might be some rain during the weekend.

The good news is that Sunday’s forecast is for cloudy skies but no rain, though the weather in Brazil can be quite changeable. The peak temperature on the day will be 74 degrees F (23 degrees C) and wind speeds should be low.
