The Formula 1 (F1) Brazilian GP is arguably one of the most thrilling races on the calendar, owing to the high-speed track and extended banked corners. Moreover, with the addition of the Sprint format to the circuit, let’s take a look at the updated schedule and timings for the Brazilian GP.

Reflecting on last year’s race, it was a triumphant day for Mercedes as the team secured an iconic one-two, with George Russell claiming his first win at the circuit. Furthermore, Carlos Sainz of Ferrari completed the podium, making it one of the rare races where Max Verstappen did not finish in the top 5.

Fast forward to 2023, where, despite Max Verstappen’s apparent dominance, the Brazilian GP remains an open field, given both Lando Norris and Lewis Hamilton have closely matched Verstappen in race pace. Moreover, considering the amount of support Hamilton gets in Brazil, he could very well be the favourite to win the race.
