BRAZILIAN GP

| HIGHLIGHTS | PICTURES | RACE TIMININGS | OTHER GPS |

 The Brazilian GP is always a test for the new chassis and engines of theseason, as the GP always is at the beginning of the season. The track was very bumpy , but the circuit was relaid in 2000,to remove most of he bumps except those of natural relief,done by the same people who laid the Sepang circuit in Malaysia. This circuit is one of the few that still provides a lot of overtaking possibilities.Sao Paulo has hosted the Brazilian Grand Prix at the Interlagos circuit for some time now. Despite the city’s vast poverty, the Grand Prix always receives big support from the local community.Located ten miles south of central Sao Paulo, the track is named after Carlos Pace who won here in 1975. It has staged the Brazilian GP since 1991. The track was resurfaced for the 1995 season and re-worked for the 1997 race, but the majority of drivers complain that it is still extremely bumpy. It remains one of the most tiring circuits that taxes even the fittest of drivers, not least
 because it undulates throughout its course. Cars will generally be set with a medium amount ofwing, with downforce settings ranging from medium to high. The high humidity and track  temperatures during March normally ensure that cars are set to maintain maximum grip on the
 track.l
