Get ready for the excitement of Formula 1 in Brazil, live on Sky Sports F1, as the Sprint weekend format returns for the Sao Paulo Grand Prix. If last year is any use, we are in for an epic.

The third and final Sprint of the season again sees a change to the weekend format with qualifying on Friday, the grid-setting mini-race on Saturday and the Grand Prix on Sunday.

The key times are:

  • Qualifying begins at 7 p.m. Friday, with buildup beginning at 6 p.m.
  • The Sprint starts at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, with preparation starting at 6:30 p.m.
  • The Grand Prix starts at 6:00 p.m. on Sunday, with preparation starting at 4:30 p.m.

Max Verstappen and Red Bull made history with a record 14th win last time out in Mexico City, with the Dutchman showing metronomic consistency, while Mercedes’ compromised strategy left Lewis Hamilton second.

Local hero Sergio Perez completed the podium to the delight of fans when McLaren’s Daniel Ricciardo, whose future remains to be decided, collided with Yuki Tsunoda before working his way up to take P7 and be driver of the day.

This weekend, Mercedes will be hoping to repeat last year’s Hamilton masterclass as they and Hamilton attempt to take their first race win of the season; maybe the predicted rain will give them the opportunity they need.
