Brazilian Grand Prix

Brazilian Grand Prix 2020 – Latest News, Winners, Qualifying, Circuits

The Brazilian Grand Prix traditionally commences a couple of weeks after the US and Mexican Grands Prix. The race is conventionally held at the Autódromo José Carlos Pace, as has been the case since 1972, except for the 1978 season and from 1981 till 1989.

Since then, it has been a regular feature in the Formula One World Championship. However, prior to that, it was held at Jacarepagua in Rio de Janeiro.

Unfortunately, present challenges presented by the ongoing pandemic has resulted in Formula One calling off the 2020 Brazilian Grand Prix.

Max Verstappen won last year’s event, redeeming himself after cruelly being denied a win in Interlagos the year before. However, the 2019 Brazil race is fondly remembered for Pierre Gasly’s scintillating drag race with Lewis Hamilton to the line ans subsequent maiden podium.

The race also marked a first F1 podium for Carlos Sainz, who was promoted to P3 after late penalties demoted Lewis Hamilton down thr order. Such was the drama at last year’s event, that F1 ranks the 2019 Brazilian Gp as one of the best races of the decade.

Brazilian Grand Prix Circuit Details 

The Autódromo José Carlos Pace is a 4.309-kilometer circuit. It consists of 15 turns with an elevation change of 43 meters. The highest point of the track is on the rise between the start-finish line and Turn 1, but from there the drivers plunge downhill all the way to Turn 5 – the lowest point on the circuit. In fact, it is practically the same height as Paris’ famous Arc de Triomphe.
