2019 Brazilian Grand Prix TV Guide

A symbol of excellence, the FIA Formula One World Championship travels five continents and draws a global television audience in the hundreds of millions, and this next stop on the circuit is certainly a big part of the success. The 2019 Brazilian Grand Prix will be hosted at the Autodromo Jose Carlos Pace, and is the 20th and penultimate fixture on this year’s F1 calendar.

The Grand Prix in Brazil was first held in 1972 and has taken place ever since. In the initial 15 years of the race, it alternated between Interlagos – where it is currently held – and a track in Rio de Janeiro, but since 1990 it has been at Autodromo Jose Carlos Pace every year. French driver Alain Prost dominated in the ’80s when it was predominantly raced in Rio, and has won the event a record six times. More recently, Michael Schumacher has taken it out four times and fellow German Sebastian Vettel three, while Lewis Hamilton took out his first ever Brazilian Grand Prix last year.

When: Saturday November 16 – Monday November 18 (Sydney time)
Where: Autodromo Jose Carlos Pace, Sao Paulo, Brazil

Entering 2019 Lewis Hamilton is the defending Driver’s Champion and will be looking for a repeat. Among the other key changes to the 2019 F1 season include that driver weight will now be considered separate from the vehicle, rather than as a combined figure. Additionally fuel allowance was increased to 110kg to allow drivers to use full power at all time, and biometric gloves will transmit potentially life-saving data to the medical team at the track.

The Brazilian Grand Prix offers a unique viewing experience, whether streaming the action live to your mobile phone, watching at home on a large screen, or online using your personal computer.

– Lewis Hamilton begins his two-event victory lap after wrapping up the 2019 title at the USA Grand Prix.

– There is some possibility that this is one of the final times the race will be held at this track after rumours surrounding a return to Rio emerged earlier this year.

– Sebastian Vettel has a chance to become the equal second most successful driver at the event with a fourth victory here this season.

– Aussie Daniel Ricciardo will be looking for a strong finish to the year both in Brazil and at Abu Dhabi to ensure he finishes the season in the top ten.
