The Brazilian Grand Prix will be held on November 11-13, 2022, and will be the season’s 21st race. Here’s all you need to know about watching the 2022 F1 Brazilian Grand Prix live on TV.

F1 Brazilian Grand Prix, Brazil first appeared on the Formula 1 schedule in 1973 at Interlagos. In 1990, after a brief stint at Rio de Janeiro’s Jacarepagua in the 1980s, So Paulo again took the reins as the host city. Since 2004, it has taken place in the late part of the season. Since then, various drivers have been named World Champions, including Lewis Hamilton in 2008 and Sebastian Vettel in 2012.

The F1 Brazilian Grand Prix was renamed after a revised agreement was struck last year, ensuring Interlagos’ continued participation in Formula 1 through the 2025 season after 2020’s Covid-mandated absence.

Interlagos, “between lakes,” is the name of the So Paulo neighborhood that lies between the artificial reservoirs of Guarapiranga and Billings. The track is officially known as the Autódromo José Carlos Pace in honor of the late Brazilian Formula 1 legend who won his only race there in 1975. One of Formula 1’s most miniature circuits connects two long full-throttle stretches with undulating long-radius bends.

Following its debut in 2021, F1 Sprint will make its third appearance of the year and return to Interlagos for the second consecutive year. As a result, there won’t be any practice sessions before Friday’s qualifying, and Saturday’s Sprint will determine the starting grid for the Grand Prix on Sunday.

Brazilian Grand Prix Predictions:

The last time out, Mercedes was back on track in Mexico City, but it was still insufficient to challenge Red Bull’s hegemony.

Verstappen is set to add his 15th victory, making it tough to envision the RB18 maintaining its dominance in the Interlagos area.

However, the sprint format might surprise, perhaps in the shape of an improbable podium finish from Alpine or McLaren. With a 40-point margin between Ferrari and Mercedes in the battle for second, Ferrari must outperform its performance from two weeks ago. 

  • However, Verstappen is the winner in our eyes.
