Formula 1 returns to Brazil for the first time since 2019 following last year's cancellation, with Max Verstappen now leading Lewis Hamilton by 19 points in the standings.

Verstappen will arrive in Interlagos off the back of a strong performance at the Mexican Grand Prix. The Dutchman managed to take the lead from third on the grid during the opening lap of the race, and went on to claim his ninth win of the season so far. Meanwhile Hamilton finished in second.

Now the calendar heads to Brazil, and the weekend format will look a little different here due to the final Sprint Qualifying event of the year taking place.

This means that there will be one hour of Free Practice on Friday at 15:30 UK time, followed by the traditional qualifying format at 19:00.

On Saturday there will be a second practice session at 15:00 before Sprint Qualifying takes place at 19:30. The result of this shortened race will determine the starting grid for Sunday's main Grand Prix, which will start at 17:00.

RacingNews365.com will be on hand to cover all of the action and you can find our live blog here. We will also have exclusive interviews, news and analysis throughout the entire weekend in Brazil.
