D he name Interlagos (Portuguese: between the lakes) suggests that the route was built in the 30s was created in the vicinity of two bodies of water. Today the pilots notice the effects of the former marshland mainly in the form of numerous bumps. Even if things have gotten better in recent years thanks to new asphalt paving.

The long home straight leads uphill from Turn 13. The two curves up to the finish line don't really deserve this name. They are fully driven through. Engine power is required on the incline. Otherwise you will lose time in the last section of the route.

Right at the beginning of the lap, the drivers dive into the 'Senna S' - one of the key points. It is mostly tight here, especially at the start. Like a corkscrew, the left-right-left combination winds downwards towards the back straight. Here over 300 km /h are reached for the second time on the lap, before the pilots turn into the narrow infield via a tricky left turn.

In terms of set-up, the bumps, the long straights and the tight corners make the engineers' work very difficult. Aerodynamic efficiency is just as important as a powerful engine. In terms of downforce and brake wear, Interlagos is rather average.
