The 2021 Formula 1 season is drawing to a close and it's Max Verstappen who currently has the upper hand over Lewis Hamilton in the title race.

There has been plenty of drama this year, and this weekend's event in Brazil is well-known for exciting moments and unpredictability.

Recent races have also seen the Constructors' Championship close up, with Mercedes holding a lead of one point over Red Bull.

The midfield could be closer to the front of the grid this weekend, too, due to the short lap and potential for incidents in the race.

RacingNews365.com will also be on hand to cover all of the action and you can find our live blog to follow every second, including the third and final Sprint Qualifying of 2021.

We will have exclusive interviews, news and analysis throughout the entire weekend in Brazil.
