2011 Brazilian Grand Prix Preview

Autodromo José Carlos Pace / 4.309 km
Race distance
71 laps / 305.909 km
Schedule
Qualifying and race 14:00 hrs local time (16:00 hrs GMT)
  Date:  25th-27th November
  •                 The 2011 Formula 1 World Championship draws to a close in Brazil as the Autodromo Jose Carlos Pace stages the 19th and final Grand Prix of the season
  •                The 4.309 km track, situated in Interlagos, is quick and one of a few to run anti-clockwise on the calendar. The bumpy surface and the constant ups and downs mean that the cars and the drivers are put through their paces. The potential unstable weather conditions may also add to the excitement surrounding one of the most popular races on the calendar and last event of the 2011 season.
  •                Pirelli has nominated its PZero medium (prime) and soft (options) for this race.
  •                There are two strategies, one which is a higher downforce setting where the middle of the lap is better optimised, and the other one is a lower downforce setting which is better for the long straight up the hill through to turn one and then the second straight down to turn four. That will cause a little bit of work on the wing level, both from a strategic and also the lap time point of view
