About the Brazilian Grand Prix

Will there be rain? A little drizzle? Or will it be dry? At Interlagos you never know! One thing is for sure, whatever the weather, it will be a memorable race. Brazil used to be the season finale and has hosted some of the most exciting races in the sport. The 2008 world championship went down to the final corner on the last lap and is one that F1 fans will remember forever. 

More recently the Brazilian Grand Prix has seen some exciting racing but unfortunately, the event was cancelled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It is hoped that the event will go ahead in 2021.

Rain, no rain or a small drizzle during the entire race weekend? You never know at Interlagos, but one thing is certain: Whatever the weather, you can bet it will be a memorable race!

The 2022 Brazilian Grand Prix

It was on this track that Ayrton Senna won his home race against all odds in 1991. Because who can win a race with a broken gearbox when there are still almost ten laps to go? So Senna, and that's not the only bizarre thing that happened on the circuit in Sao Paulo.

In 2008, one of the most famous moments in recent F1 history came. Felipe Massa saw Lewis Hamilton pip him to the World Championship and the “Is that Glock?” comment came from the British commentary after he was spotted running slowly. Yes, that was Timo Glock who was overtaken by Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton just before the finish flag, giving the Briton enough points to win the title. The party already being held in Ferrari's garage quickly gave way to anger and tears. The Brazilian Grand Prix is ​​always one where emotions run high.
