The Brazilian Grand Prix at the Jose Carlos Pace Autodrome always springs some surprises. I predicted anything could happen in Brazil and after the 2016 edition produced one of the longest races of the decade behind Jenson Button’s 2011 victory in Canada; it did not disappoint. There were cheers, celebrations, heartache and tears alongside boos from the fans in the grandstands after 2 Red Flags during the race and an unbelievable 33 tedious laps behind the Safety Car. Then there was the action when it eventually got going and the emotional farewell from Sao Paulo crowd to home favourite Felipe Massa.
After over three hours and a delayed start by 10 minutes, it was Lewis Hamilton who took the chequered flag to take the Drivers Championship battle to the finale in Abu Dhabi. Two records tumbled with Hamilton’s victory. It was his 52nd victory in F1 and now he has 2nd place in the all-time winners list to himself as well as it being a win at the 24th circuit in his F1 career. No another driver in F1 history has won at so many circuits.
