The Evolution Of F1 Circuits

Interlagos – Brazil

Racing at Interlagos was supposed to begin in the year 1939 but due to poor weather conditions, it was postponed until the following year. It held motor racing up to 1967 when extensive safety renovations couldn’t be put off any longer.

Racing started again in ’71 but it wasn’t until ’73 when it hosted Formula One. Unfortunately, Interlagos’ new safety features weren’t good enough for the F1 drivers, who complained about its general safety and as a result, F1 racing was pulled.

Before returning in 1990 the track went under a series of extensive changes in preparation. New garages and a race control tower were built with the track being reduced significantly to comply with the new trend for shorter circuits. A new first turn bypassed the old banked corner, plunging downhill and connecting with the old circuit at Curva do Sol and heading in the opposite direction to previously to a revised and tightened corner between the lakes, before heading back up the hill and re-joining the original infield and the climb back to the Pits.

Since these changes, only minor Pit lane alterations have been made and it’s known around the world as one of the best circuits in motorsports.
