The Brazilian Grand Prix 2019 commences a couple of weeks after the US Grand Prix. Lewis Hamilton has already wrapped up the 2019 driver’s championship, his sixth world championship in total. This weekend’s race will be 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.

Brazilian Grand Prix 2019 Circuit Details
The Autódromo José Carlos Pace is a 4.309-kilometre circuit. It consists of 15 turns with an elevation change of 43 metres. 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 of Paris’ famous Arc de Triomphe.
