Recap all of Crash.net's live coverage of the penultimate round of the 2019 Formula 1 season, the Brazilian Grand Prix from Interlagos, Sau Paulo. 

Formula 1 heads to Sao Paulo for the Brazilian Grand Prix, which takes place at the iconic Autodromo Jose Carlos Pace and marks the final event of a three-race trip across the Americas.

Both world championships have now been settled, after Lewis Hamilton clinched his sixth world title last time out at the United States Grand Prix in Austin to add to Mercedes' triumph in the constructors'. The all-conquering German manufacturer has subsequently maintained its 100 percent winning record in the V6 hybrid era, having swept up all six world drivers' and teams' championships on offer since 2014. 

We should be set for another close battle for victory at Interlagos, with Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull all expected to dice it out for the honour of standing on the top step of the podium. While the titles have been sealed, bragging rights over the battle to be best of the rest are still up for the taking. 

Charles Leclerc heads Red Bull's Max Verstappen by 14 points heading to Brazil, with Ferrari teammate Sebastian Vettel a further five points behind. Leclerc will have a tough job on his hands to remain third after this weekend, with the Monegasque facing a 10-place grid drop for an engine change. Vettel is the most successful current driver in Brazil and has racked up three previous wins at Interlagos (2010, 2013 and 2017). 

The fight to come out on top of the midfield will also one to watch this weekend, with McLaren remaining on course to beat Renault to fourth spot in the championship. The Woking squad currently holds a comfortable 38-point buffer and will be looking to move closer to sealing fourth in Brazil. 

Final practice gets underway at 1200 local time (1500 GMT), before qualifying takes place at 1500 (1800 GMT).
