BRAZILIAN GRAND PRIX

Sao Paulo's venerable Interlagos circuit may be getting on in years and a little creaky in places but it remains a classic venue. The cramped and always thronged paddock gives the circuit an electric, old-school feel, while the atmosphere on track is even wilder, enlivened by hordes of passionate and extremely noisy fans who pack the grandstands throughout the race weekend. Interlagos provides them with great racing too. From the downhill run through the Senna-S, to the big overtaking point of the Descida do Lago, and the long, looping run across the hillside before the big blast from Junçao to the start-finish straight. In recent years it's seen some incredible races, such as Lewis Hamilton's last gasp championship snatch-and-grab in 2008 and Sebastian Vettel's soaking wet, white-knuckle ride to claim his third championship in 2012. There are undoubtedly more thrillers to come from this great old circuit, it's just built that way.
