RaceFans understands all teams have been affected by the disruption to a similar degree. The delayed freight includes essential items related to the running of the race weekend.

“There were delays in freight departing Mexico on Monday due to the weather conditions, meaning some freight is still to arrive in Brazil,” an F1 spokesperson told RaceFans. “We expect this to arrive tomorrow with no wider impact on the race weekend.”
