The 2019 Formula 1 season is reaching its end. The tour heads to Sao Paulo this week for the annual Brazil Grand Prix, and we have you covered with a full preview and betting tips for the weekend’s action below.
The 2019 drivers championship was decided last week in the United States. Needing only an eighth place finish or better, Lewis Hamilton finished second behind teammate Valtteri Bottas to claim his sixth drivers championship. The Brit now sits just one behind the all time record of German Michael Schumacher and is just 34 years of age.
It was a stellar weekend for Mercedes all-round as Bottas picked up his fourth win of the season and secured second place in the drivers standings. It was the ninth time this season that Mercedes has claimed the top two steps on the podium, and although the constructors championship was decided long ago, they are currently sit 70 points behind the all-time constructors points record of 765, set by Mercedes in 2016.
Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel was forced to retire in the United States, marking his second retirement in just four races. Red Bull driver Max Verstappen was able to leapfrog Vettel into fourth place in the drivers standings with a strong third place finish behind the Mercedes duo.
The Autódromo José Carlos Pace, also known simply as Interlagos, is the premier racing track in Brazil. Located in the city of Sao Paulo, the track has been the official home of the Brazilian Grand Prix since the 1973 season, although the race had brief stops at Jacarepaguá throughout its history.
At just over 4.3km, the track is a short one with two long straights down either side. Turns 4-13 are the most technical part of the track and generally where the the courses unpredictable nature comes from.
Interlagos is possiblt most famous for the fact that it is not completely flat, like a lot of other F1 circuits. The track follows the hilly contours of the area, which brings in a whole new element of difficulty for drivers.
With the drivers championship already wrapped up, you would have to think that Hamilton will be in cruise control for these last two races in Brazil and Abu Dhabi. Adding to that, Brazil hasn’t been a place where Hamilton has regularly dominanted. Granted, the Brit still boasts two wins at Interlagos, however, his record there isn’t nearly as good as some other tracks on the F1 circuit.
We are staying away from Hamilton this weekend and opting to target some more value in the form of Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel. Vettel has been great at Interlagos over the span of his career, picking up three separate wins across a near 10 year period in 2010, 2013 and 2017.
