Brazilian Grand Prix

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.
