04.11.2014: 2014 Petrobras Brazilian Grand Prix 18th Round of the FIA Formula One World Championship

 2014 Petrobras Brazilian Grand Prix

18th Round of the FIA Formula One World Championship, 7th to 9th November 2014





The penultimate race of this year’s FIA Formula One World Championship will take place this weekend. From 7th to 9th November the 18th round will be held on the traditional race track in Interlagos.


Esteban Gutiérrez (car number 21):


“Interlagos is a track I always associate with Ayrton Senna. There is a lot of history behind it, and you feel the great vibes around the event. The weather is pretty special as it changes a lot, which makes it exciting. Previously, it has been the last race of the season, but this year the final round will take place in Abu Dhabi.


Last year it was the first time I got to know Interlagos, and I enjoyed driving on this track. In comparison to other circuits, this is a short track; it has one very long straight, which means that engine power will be important. For the quick corners 6 and 7, which go uphill, it is crucial to have a good balance for the car.


Especially in wet conditions, the track is fun to drive, and you can also go over the kerbs. It is a nice old style circuit.”



Adrian Sutil (car number 99):

“Interlagos is a nice track in South Amercia where my father’s roots are. It is an event which I view very warmly. Mostly the races are spectacular, which often comes from the unpredictable weather. The track is short, but packs a punch with many bumps. It is not easy to drive.


It is always a great race weekend, and I am looking forward to it. I think we can hope for points there, however, it will not be easy.”


Giampaolo Dall’Ara, Head of Track Engineering:


“The track and the atmosphere at Interlagos are fascinating. Getting the right balance for the car through the infield is a real challenge, given the speed requirements of the remainder of the circuit. A versatile and efficient car and strong driving skills can make a difference.


On top of that, the weather is usually changeable. We will again be provided with the medium and the soft tyres, which are expected to suit the race well.”
