For the final time this season, Formula 1 is hosting a Sprint weekend, meaning qualifying is set to take place on Friday at the Sao Paulo Grand Prix.

Interlagos is the only venue to have hosted a Sprint every season since the format was adopted in 2021, with both events providing great racing with Valtteri Bottas and George Russell emerging victorious for Mercedes, respectively.

In the five events held this year, Max Verstappen has won three of them in Austria, Belgium and the United States with Sergio Perez claiming victory in Azerbaijan as Oscar Piastri tasted victory for the first time in Qatar.

As ever, drivers will only have 60 minutes of practice with which to fine-tune their set-ups before entering parc ferme ahead of qualifying for the remainder of the weekend.

Verstappen has 10 pole positions this season, with Charles Leclerc taking four, two for Carlos Sainz and Sergio Perez with Lewis Hamilton picking up one in Hungary. Will anyone be able to defeat the World Champion and start Sunday's race P1?
