Formula One returns for the third weekend in a row as the action makes its way to São Paulo for the 2023 Brazilian Grand Prix.
This weekend’s schedule will also include the sixth and final Sprint race of the year as the drivers and teams look to claim valuable extra points as the season begins to close.
It was Max Verstappen who took the chequered flag again in Mexico last weekend – his 16th victory of the year, which saw him break his own record of taking the most wins in an F1 season in history.
This time around, he’ll have plenty of competitors agin though, not least so Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton who took P2 in Mexico City as he looks to end the year in strong fashion to claim second spot in the World Drivers’ Championship standings.

The Ferraris of Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc also seem to be performing much better in recent weeks, whilst McLaren pair Lando Norris and Oscar Piastri remain in the hunt for their first victories of the year. With pressure on his shoulders after another DNF last time out, Sergio Perez will also be on the lookout for a podium finish at the minimum here for Red Bull.
