Since 1973 the Autódromo José Carlos Pace, better known as Interlagos, has exploded into passionate seas of yellow and green when Formula 1 roars into town.
The Brazilian Grand Prix is South America’s only race, and the short but fast circuit, coupled with Sao Paulo’s unpredictable weather often forms the perfect cocktail for electrifying races. Ayrton Senna is synonymous with racing in Sao Paulo and his immortal legend can be found throughout the storied walls of Interlagos. Nelson Piquet, Rubens Barrichello and Felipe Massa are among the other fabled F1 names known in these parts. Last year Mercedes’ George Russell masterfully took his first ever Formula 1 victory, while 2021 saw Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen frantically dual for the win with the British driver emerging victorious. One thing is for sure: tickets to this one will be hard to come by towards the end of the season.
