0 Comments

The Brazilian Grand Prix is one of the most famous and historic events on the Formula 1 calendar, being the site of many a championship decider over the past ten years.

In fact, all five of the current world champions racing in F1 have clinched a championship at Interlagos, making it a favorite venue for many.

Although he cannot win the title in Brazil this weekend, Nico Rosberg will be hoping to make inroads into Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton’s lead at the top of the drivers’ championship, with the German driver trailing by 24 points heading into the race at Interlagos.

Rosberg certainly started as he will mean to go on in practice on Friday, finishing fastest in both sessions, and he will be looking to make it a clean sweep during FP3 on Saturday morning.

Hamilton didn’t sit back in practice, though, and finished a close second to his teammate in both sessions. He did admit that he failed to hook up a perfect lap in FP2, meaning that he could have been a lot quicker.

The newly resurfaced track at Interlagos has caught a number of drivers out already this weekend, with the low grip levels posing a serious challenge. FP3 will give the drivers one final chance to find the limit and prepare for qualifying later today.

Fernando Alonso, Esteban Gutierrez and Sergio Perez will all be hoping to make up for lost time after missing part of practice on Friday. In Perez’s case, he did not even sit in the car after reserve driver Dani Juncadella crashed out in FP1, leaving Force India with a big repair job ahead of today’s session.
