The F1 circuit at Sao Paulo
While officially known as Autódromo José Carlos Pace, the Sao Paulo circuit is often referred to by its older, more succinct name: Interlagos. Its origins can be traced back to 1938, when local property developers purchased land with the intention of building houses. Upon discovering that their acquisition wasn't suitable for its intended purpose, the enterprising duo decided to build a race circuit instead. Interlagos has hosted the Brazilian Grand Prix since the '70s, with local racers including Carlos Pace winning there during that golden period. Pace tragically died in a plane crash in 1977, whereupon Interlagos was renamed in his honour. Today, the anti-clockwise circuit is full of bumps, long straights and gentle corners, providing an exciting climax to the 2014 Grand Prix.
