Formula 1 returns to the Autodromo Jose Carlos Pace this weekend for the Brazilian Grand Prix.

Better known to many as Interlagos, the venue has played host to a number of memorable races over the years.

That proved to be the case in 2021, a weekend in which Lewis Hamilton charged from the back of the field in Saturday's Sprint race to finish P5 before claiming victory in Sunday's main race, further adding tension to his title fight with Max Verstappen.

Things look a little different championship-wise ahead of the 2022 Grand Prix, with Verstappen and Red Bull having already sealed both the Drivers' and Constructors' prizes. But can they add yet another victory to their tally?

When is the 2022 Brazilian GP?

The 2022 Brazilian Grand Prix will be held across the weekend of 11-13 November.

With the Sprint making its third and final appearance of the season, the schedule of the event will look a little different. A practice session on Friday will be followed by traditional qualifying later in the day.

There will be a second practice hour on Saturday, with the Sprint taking place afterwards. This will determine the starting grid for Sunday's race.

How many laps is the Brazilian GP?

The race will take place over 71 laps of the 4.309-kilometre Autodromo Jose Carlos Pace, with a maximum race time of two hours if there are any stoppages or delays.

What time does the Brazilian GP start?

Sunday's Brazilian Grand Prix will start at 15:00 local time (18:00 GMT).

Below are the start times for the race for various time zones across the world.

Video: F1 pit-stops under two seconds are allowed (and THIS is why)

At the Mexico City Grand Prix, McLaren became the first team to complete a sub-two second pit-stop since the introduction of the new F1 pit-stop regulations, changing all four tyres on Daniel Ricciardo's car in 1.98 seconds.

So how did the team do this, and what changes have been made to F1's pit-stop procedure in the last couple of years?
