Preview Brazilian Grand Prix



31 MAR - 03 APR 2016

25 - 27 November 2011

Venue: Interlagos, São Paulo
Circuit Length: 4.309 Km
Laps: 71
Lap Record: 1:11.473 = 217.038 km/h J. Montoya (Williams) 2004

Tle last race of a gruelling season… the 29th at Interlagos… and the 858th in World Championship history.

It’s the shortest permanent circuit on the calendar, and the highest at 800m above sea level (with a 10% loss of engine power because of the drop in air density).

“It’s rare for there to be a straightforward race at Interlagos,” says Lewis Hamilton – remember Nico Hülkenberg’s pole in 2010!

It’s the scene of Williams’ last win, back in `04: could it also be the stage for Williams man Rubens Barrichello’s last race?

Pirelli will give the drivers two supplementary sets of a new Hard compound for Friday, while they will race on P Zero Whites (Medium) and a new P Zero Yellow (Soft).

It’s the fifth anti-clockwise track of the season – can you name the other four?

(Full marks if you said Istanbul, Singapore, Korea and Abu Dhabi!)
