Formula 1 ventures to one of its most historic and famous circuits this weekend as Interlagos hosts the Brazilian Grand Prix.
The track has been the site of many a great championship battle, with all five of the current champions on the grid winning at least one of their titles in Brazil.
However, this year, it will not be the deciding round as the double points race in Abu Dhabi guarantees that Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg’s fight will go to the final race of the year.
Nevertheless, the Brazilian GP will be an important race in deciding the destination of the championship as Hamilton goes in search of a sixth straight win that would take his lead over Rosberg past 30 points ahead of the final race.
Kicking things off in Brazil this weekend, we have the first free practice session. You can watch FP1 live on Live Extra from 7am ET today. CLICK HERE to watch via live stream.
After taking his 10th win of the season in Austin last weekend, Hamilton gave himself the luxury of not having to win either of the final two races to become champion. Finishing second in both Brazil and Abu Dhabi would be enough for the Briton, but that simply isn’t Lewis’ style.
With rain set to affect much of the running in Brazil this weekend, FP1 will give the drivers an important first chance to get out on track in the dry and get to grips with their cars. Also keep an eye out for Max Verstappen, Felipe Nasr and Dani Juncadella taking part in a reserve role in this session.
