What do we know about José Carlos Pace Race Track?

  • Circuit Length: 4,309km
  • First GP: 1973
  • Laps: 71
  • Race Distance: 305,909km
  • Race lap log: 1.10.540 – Valtteri Bottas, 2018
  • Winner of 2018: Mercedes Lewis Hamilton
  • Number of Corners: 15
  • Overcoming chances: There aren't many places to go, but a lot of action happens early in the lap, with the DRS on the straight pit, making the one and two corner braking zone the best and most common way to climb a point. There is an outside chance on your back straight if you get a good run but it is risky. Elsewhere, it's a little too tight, with no errors from the driver ahead.

What are the odds (top six)?

  • Max Verstappen 8/11
  • Lewis hamilton 2/1
  • Sebastian Vettel 11/02
  • Valtteri Bottas 1/12
  • Charles Leclerc 25/1
  • Alexander Albon 50/1

What was our pre-race forecast?

The US Grand Prix was a shock to Ferrari. They were less competitive in qualifying, though nearly a million miles away, but their racing pace was atrocious. Mercedes returned to be the fastest team on Sunday and you would expect them to be the fastest on Interlagos as well. The circuit is quite winding and quite fast and without particularly long straight lines. That said, the drag on the last turns is simple and this may favor Ferrari. Or at least make up for any difficulties they may have.
