An unpredictable weekend of weather is forecast for the 2006 championship finale this weekend on the outskirts of sprawling Brazilian city Sao Paulo.

Scattered showers and rain is expected to fall throughout the week until Friday, when opening practice will kick off at the Autodromo Jose Carlos Pace, located in the neighbourhood of Interlagos.

The chance of intermittent rain is to remain on Friday and then increase for the afternoon of qualifying. Sunday, however, is shaping up as the best weather of the weekend, with temperatures in the low twenties and cloudy skies.

The probability for race day rain is thirty per cent.

“The weather is often unpredictable in Sao Paulo,” BMW team principal Mario Theissen remarked.
