After being absent from the 2020 season calendar due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Formula 1 returns to racing in Brazil this weekend.

A fan favourite, Interlagos hosts this weekend’s 2021 Sao Paulo Grand Prix as Max Verstappen looks to tighten his grip on this year’s title. 

The Dutchman dominated the race last time out from third on the grid in Mexico to extend his lead over Lewis Hamilton to 19 points.

In recent years, Brazil has been a favourable track as like Mexico it is at altitude.

Verstappen would have won in 2018 had it not been for a collision with Esteban Ocon, while in 2019, the Red Bull driver reigned supreme.

Sprint qualifying makes its return for this weekend with five more points awarded on Saturday - 3, 2, 1.
