Steve Jones and David Coulthard present highlights of Sprint Qualifying action from the Autódromo José Carlos Pace in São Paulo. Last year’s race here was one of those cancelled due to Covid, so the drivers haven’t had a chance to test their mettle on the hilly, physically demanding circuit for two years. Back in 2019 it was Max Verstappen who secured pole ahead of Vettel and Hamilton. The Red Bull driver has also secured his place at the front of the grid both of the previous times that the new Sprint Qualifying format has been used this season. With that in mind, he’ll be confident of producing a repeat performance this time out.
