Sebastian Vettel’s weekend didn’t start smoothly – he messed his tyres up with this spin in practice.

Lewis Hamilton

Butthere were bigger problems for Lewis Hamilton in qualifying. This crash meant he had to start from the pit lane.

Brendon Hartley

Third race for Brendon Hartley, third power unit grid penalty. And second retirement due to power unit problems.

From second on the grid Vettel dived past Valtteri Bottas to take the lead. A collision between Kevin Magnussen, Stoffel Vandoorne and Daniel Ricciardo left a gap in the field as they screamed down the Reta Oposta.

Esteban Ocon

A few moments later Romain Grosjean and Esteban Ocon collided, forcing the Force India out of the race. It was Ocon’s first retirement in 55 races, more than half of which were before he arrived in F1.

Felipe Massa and Fernando Alonso

Felipe Massa gave the local some cheer in his final race on home ground by passing his former Ferrari team mate Fernanddo Alonso.

Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen

Max Verstappen offered some resistance to Hamilton but he was never going to be able to keep the quicker Mercedes behind.

Sebastian Vettel

Vettel clinched his fifth win of 2017 and celebrated with a few doughnuts.

  1. interlagos looks fantastic in the bright sunshine. i always associate it with being rather grey and overcast, if not actually bucketing down with rain! there was a tremendous picture of vandoorne attached to one of the recent articles, though perhaps it wasn’t from this race…

    1. I had the same exact thought @frood19. What a wonderful venue it is.

  2. I love that picture of Massa overtaking Alonso.

    It’s a shame they don’t race in the old circuit. It was one of the most challenging and entertaining racetracks in the word. If you go to google maps, you can see all we’re missing with the current layout.

  4. I looked at that Massa/Alonso picture for ages before realising it was a reflection….. Couldn’t figure out which hairpin it was! :D

    1. @petebaldwin It looks like it would make for a decent hairpin actually, multiple approach angles like Malaysia turn 15, with a hint of China turn 13 exit slingshot.
