Rubens Barrichello is not able to say what would be the best weather conditions for the GP Brazil on Sunday at Interlagos, the penultimate round of the F-1 2009. He says that a wet track would be the ideal setting to try to secure the British Jenson Button, the championship leader, but is afraid that a race with rain helps Sebastian Vettel, Red Bull.

Vettel (who drives pretty well in the rain) is two points behind Barrichello in the championship of Formula 1. "The rain turns everything into a lottery. I love the rain! I believe in Interlagos, Brawn will be more competitive than Red Bull, but they used to grow in the rain," said Barrichello.

The forecast says that São Paulo must have showers on Friday and Saturday, days of free practice and qualifying proof.

For Sunday afternoon, when the race will be contested (2pm, GMT -3), the forecast says quick rainstorm.

The winner of Interlargos 2009 will receive a Felipe Massa's checkered flag, Brazilian driver who is recovering from a serious accident suffered in practice for the Hungarian Grand Prix last July.

"I thought he would be able to drive at Interlagos, but I think he needs a little more time. If I can get his checkered flag, it will be great!" said Barrichello. Massa from Ferrari, is recovering from a serious accident caused by a broken car part left by Barrichelo's car on July. Now he is fine and will be back next Formula 1 season.
