The Sao Paulo Grand Prix is one of the races in the Formula One calendar that changed its name over the years, and it was called the Brazilian Grand Prix until 2021, when fans saw the renamed race for the first time.
It's one of the few Grands Prix that have been held almost every single time since the inaugural race, as the first Formula One race was held in Brazil back in 1972, even though it wasn't an official championship race.
However, a year later, the Brazilian Grand Prix debuted in the Formula One World Championship, and since then, it hasn't been held only in 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Brazilian drivers won the first three championship races, and after the initial two triumphs of Emerson Fittipaldi, Carlos Pace won a race in 1975. It's the Brazilian driver who recorded his only F1 victory at Interlagos that the circuit is named after - Autodromo Jose Carlos Pace.
Although the Brazilian Grand Prix was held a few times at the Autodromo Internacional Nelson Piquet, also known as the Jacarepaguá, in Rio de Janeiro, the majority of the Grands Prix was held at Interlagos in Sao Paulo, and that's also one of the reasons why the race is now called the Sao Paulo Grand Prix.
Similarly to the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, the Miami Grand Prix, and the Las Vegas Grand Prix, the Sao Paulo Grand Prix and the Mexico City Grand Prix changed their names in 2021 to follow the city-centric trend.
Since the name change, only one car manufacturer won a race at the Sao Paulo Grand Prix, when Lewis Hamilton's 2021 triumph was followed by George Russell in 2022. The race track, Interlagos, is 4.309 kilometers (2.677 miles) long, and the record lap has been recorded by another Mercedes driver, Valtteri Bottas, who completed a lap in 1:10.540 in 2018.
The capacity of the Autodromo Jose Carlos Pace is 60,000 spectators, and the Sao Paulo Grand Prix is 305.879 kilometers (190.064 miles) long across 71 laps.
