BRAZILIAN GRAND PRIX

AUTODROMO JOSE CARLOS PACE
Postponed

The Brazilian Grand Prix first appeared on the Formula 1 calendar in 1973 and it’s never missed a year since. There have been 47 Brazil F1 GPs, with ten hosted at Rio’s Jacarepagua and the remaining 37 at Interlagos, at the Jose Carlos Pace circuit.

The venerable Interlagos circuit may be getting on in years and a little creaky in places but it remains a classic venue. The cramped and always packed paddock gives the circuit an electric, old-school feel, while the atmosphere on track is even wilder, enlivened by hordes of passionate and extremely noisy fans who pack the grandstands throughout the race weekend.

Interlagos provides them with great racing too. From the downhill run through the Senna-S, to the big overtaking point of the Descida do Lago, and the long, looping run across the hillside before the big blast from Junçao to the start-finish straight.

In recent years it’s seen some incredible races, such as Lewis Hamilton’s last gasp championship snatch-and-grab in 2008 and Sebastian Vettel’s soaking wet, white-knuckle ride to claim his third championship in 2012. There are undoubtedly more thrillers to come from this great old circuit.

The 2019 Brazilian GP ended with a win for Max Verstappen, ahead of our own Pierre Gasly, who thus recorded our team’s third ever podium finish.
