Fans are always excited about back-to-back races. However, they can be extremely stressful for teams and drivers. Ahead of the Brazilian Grand Prix, there has been a delay of containers carrying equipment which are vital for teams getting ready for the weekend. F1 did mention, the delay was due to bad weather but it won’t affect the race weekend.

Acclaimed F1 reporter, Jennie Gow, tweeted, Breaking: Fun and games in #F1 land. Two of the F1 freight planes are stuck in Miami so it’s going to be a very late start to get building cars and get them through scrutineering in time for Friday. Herculean effort by lots of people but schedule might have to change.”

A response soon emerged for F1 stating, “There were delays in freight departing Mexico on Monday due to the weather conditions, meaning some freight is still to arrive in Brazil. We expect this to arrive tomorrow with no wider impact on the race weekend.”
