MILESTONE
The Brazilian Grand Prix is a true test of durability, heightened by the fact that the race is run in an anti-clockwise direction. The circuit consists of medium and slow speed corners and has a blend of long, fast straights and gradient changes. With such a varied layout, set-up compromises are inevitable, and the challenge lies in achieving optimal aerodynamic efficiency around the lap.

Interlagos is a notoriously bumpy circuit, so not only is it draining on the drivers, but the cars must have a good mechanical balance for driveability. Combined with the bumps, the track is also particularly abrasive, so harder compound tyres must be selected to ensure their survival. Engines are also under pressure in Brazil, with the long straights demanding extensive periods at full throttle and high revs, while the high altitude and thinning air saps approximately 8 percent of overall power around the lap. Plenty of overtaking opportunities, combined with the area's unpredictable weather conditions, will only enhance what is always a great race.

QUOTES ON INTERLAGOS

Interlagos has a lot of great memories for me, having won both my world championships at the circuit. They were both quite different races, but that is a characteristic of the track. It is very bumpy, you have to have suspension that allows you to drive hard whilst not being too uncomfortable.
