Kubica predicts lotteryposted in F101 | 11 | 2010
RENAULT ACE Robert Kubica believes this weekend's Brazilian Grand Prix is poised to follow its reputation of a lottery if, as is forecast, the weather — as it did last year — plays another significant role.
"Brazil is a bit of a strange track and it's really difficult to predict how we will perform," the Pole, seventh in this year's championship and second at Interlagos 12 months ago, said today. "There is a long straight out of the last corner where the F-duct will give us lots of gain and this is also where the power of the engine will be important.
"I think we might have a lottery with the weather because Brazil gets unsettled conditions at this time of year, so it's likely we will have some wet running, as we did in 2009.
"When it rains the track has very poor grip and you have to be lucky to get the perfect balance with the car. I had a good result there last year, which came as a big surprise. It will be difficult to repeat it this year, but as I said the weather can play a big role at Interlagos and anything can happen there."
