Let’s get down to it!
If you love Formula One, you probably do a countdown to this big event in anticipation of the excitement and suspense it has in store for you. In this light, there’s no better way to build anticipation than going back to previous happenings in this event. Let’s go back in time and show you the history of this Formula One World Championship that has been consistent in Brazil for over 40 years.
The reputation of this event was affected by incidents of security at the 2017 Formula 1 Brazilian Grand Prix when several teams were robbed at gunpoint when they were exiting Interlagos. This year’s(2021) race may be the last Interlagos plays host before the event is moved to Rio de Janeiro. There is some remarkable history these grounds have in the record book:
Autodromo de Interlagos Circuit, which is popularly known as Interlagos, was constructed in 1940. However, it only began to host continuous rounds of the F1 World Championship races in 1973. The Interlagos circuit is situated in the Sao Paulo suburb of Interlagos. In Portuguese, this implies that the circuit is located between the lakes. This Brazilian F1 circuit was given a new name, Autodromo Josē Carlos Pace, in remembrance of Carlos Pace, a native of Sao Paulo who memorably won his one(and only) race on this track in 1975. Unfortunately, Carlos Pace died tragically in 1997 after a light plane crash. Although the circuit got renamed, many people, to date, still refer to it as Interlagos.
The earlier built Interlagos layout of 7.96 km had a track surface filled with bumps and not enough safety measures. This was later removed from the Formula One calendar due to the poor nature of the track at the end of the 1970s. And F1 Brazilian GP found a new home in Brazil, in Rio de Janeiro, at the Jacarepaguá circuit.
In 1990, Formula One made a comeback to the Interlagos circuit after a special renovation program. This time, the track was safer and had a shorter layout of 4.309km. Since then, it has been a constant feature on the Formula One calendar, playing host to some historic and memorable races known in the history of the Formula One.
In 2014, the circuit became significantly improved after the resurfacing, which was a part of the bigger redevelopment picture. Although there’s a contract between Formula One and Interlagos circuit to continue racing at the venue until 2022, the long-term future on the F1 calendar is up in the air. The reason being that the circuit lacks the necessary investment and requirements like the absence of facilities for fans. The fact that Brazil no longer has a driver in Formula One doesn’t help the case.
While we wait for the big day, we have got you covered with the schedule. This will also provide you with an answer to the question: what time is the Brazilian Grand Prix? Take a look!

Do you love motorsports and earning from making bets? Betting on Brazilian GP is an excellent option to consider. Here’s how it works:
The thrill of the Brazilian Grand Prix is back in November. Get ready!
The Brazilian GP holds a great deal of interest in the world of betting, and this is mainly due to the position of the race in the calendar. Since it takes place as the penultimate race, the interest surrounding the Brazilian Grand Prix results will be immense. The 2021 campaign should be no different even with Mercedes having an immensely already on the two titles. There is a greater chance of the title being wrapped up well before the last few races.
There are several markets available for this event, but the two Championships are likely to be out of context. There is a considerable lead between the top two places in the Drivers’ and Constructors’ table. The race in these championships could be over well before this event, but that should not limit the entertainment factor considering the rich history on offer at this race.
There is not a vast history of sustained success at the Brazilian Grand Prix among the recent crop of drivers. Sebastian Vettel has been able to pick up three wins at this event, but he has managed only one win in the last five years. Lewis Hamilton has two wins – the same as some legends like Ayrton Senna and Mika Häkkinen. Another victory would put him level with Sebastian Vettel. Alain Prost is the most successful racer when it comes to the Brazil Grand Prix, as he has picked up a remarkable six wins.
McLaren is the most successful team in the Constructors’ Championship as they have picked up 12 wins and they are closely followed by Ferrari, who has 11 wins. The recent trend has been skewed towards Mercedes, who have been on the winning side in all but one of the last five editions. Apart from the success achieved by Ferrari in 2017, the Brazilian Grand Prix F1 has been entirely dominated by Mercedes. The race winner is a market that can be extremely rewarding in such circumstances, as it effectively offers Bottas and Hamilton as the likely candidates in this recent trend.
The pole position market is also quite impressive with Lewis Hamilton being able to win the two Brazilian F1 Grand Prixs that he has started on pole. Since his recent pace has been excellent, there is a higher chance of the Brit being able to start at the top of the grid. The pole position at this Grand Prix directly gave rise to the winner for four consecutive years before the 2017 and 2018 editions.
The fastest lap is another market where punters can look to make a difference. Bottas not only set the fastest lap at the race last season, but he also ended up creating the new lap record of 1:10.540. Since the lap records have been tumbling a lot in the 2021 calendar, there is a higher chance of a Mercedes driver setting a new lap record in the form of the fastest lap in this race. The lap record has been broken four times in the ten races already. It is possible to come across some excellent odds regarding this market. The choice of Hamilton or Bottas for the fastest lap at the F1 Brazilian Grand Prix would be one of the top betting tips.
