Brazil, Interlagos - March 30th - April 1st - 2001



About the Brazilian GP


The Brazilian Grand Prix still arouses mass interest amongst local fans despite the poverty that is so prevalent in many parts of Sao Paulo. Fans flock there for the race every March to see their new hero Rubens Barrichello, now driving for Ferrari, battle it out against the competition. Weather is normally warm and dry, but the event has been scene of some big storms, which have created chaos amongst the frontrunners. The track, despite its bumps, is still challenging for the drivers, and qualifying is normally a spectacle, as cars zing down pit straight and down the slight descent into turn one. For teams, the paddock and garage facilities are Spartan, as is the electrical supply it is not uncommon for power blackouts to occur many times during the day. The race’s future, at time of writing, is still under a cloud with tobacco advertising issues, but officials are praying their race gets an exemption from a sweeping government ban.
