12 Nov 2017

Vettel victorious, with Raikkonen also on the podium in third

Interlagos – Sebastian Vettel won today’s Brazilian Grand Prix, held at the Interlagos circuit. It is Scuderia Ferrari’s 229th Formula One win, the fifth this season for the team and for Seb. Kimi Raikkonen also made it to the podium having finished third. Both Scuderia Ferrari drivers started the race on the Supersoft tyres, making a single pit stop to switch to the Softs. There were three key moments: the start with Seb managing to get ahead of Bottas; the pit stops, carried out perfectly by the team and Kimi’s defence of third place, when under attack from Hamilton in the closing stages.

Behind the win and double podium, a great job by the team
