The Autodromo Jose Carlos Pace will remain Brazil’s home for F1 until 2025 after a new agreement was ratified, with the event now rebranded as the Sao Paulo Grand Prix starting in 2021. The most populous city in Brazil has been home to the event since 1990.

Formula 1 Brazilian Grand Prix 2021

The first event held at Interlagos dates back to 1972, with the first world championship event taking place a year later. Buoyed by the popularity and success of world champion Emerson Fittipaldi, the festive mood in the stands has translated into action on the track thanks to tricky banked corners and constant elevation changes that test a driver’s focus.

The circuit flows in a counter-clockwise direction, a rarity in the sport, and starts with a long straight that then flows into the “S do Senna”, named after Brazil's favourite son Ayrton Senna, for Turns 1 and 2. A slow middle section features several small turns and elevation changes, while the end of the lap from Juncao to Turn One is taken at full throttle.

While there were rumours of a potential return to the Jacarepagua Circuit in Rio de Janeiro, an agreement was reached in November 2020 that will keep F1 at the Autodromo Jose Carlos Pace until 2025 under the name of the Sao Paulo GP.

The Brazilian Grand Prix 2020

Cancelled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2019 edition of the race saw Max Vertappen cross the line first in his Red Bull after starting from pole position. Pierre Gasly took second, while Lewis Hamilton crossed the line third despite a late collision with Alexander Albon. However the stewards later handed the Brit a five-second time penalty which promoted Carlos Sainz and his McLaren to third. It was Gasly and Sainz’s first time on the podium and also set a new record for youngest combined podium age.

When is the 2021 Brazilian Grand Prix on the F1 calendar?
The Brazilian Grand Prix is scheduled to take place on the weekend of November 5-7 and is provisionally set to be the 20th race of the Formula 1 season. The first two free practice sessions will take place on November 5 with qualifying on Saturday November 6 at 19:00 CET.

What time does the Brazilian Grand Prix start?
The Brazilian Grand Prix starts on Sunday November 7, 2021 at 19:00 CET. The race can be followed live on RacingNews365’s live blog.
