2016 Brazilian GP Post-Race Stats

Brazil was off to a bit of a slow start but once it started going, EVERYTHING HAPPENED.

Hamilton qualified on pole and led for the entire race, without even making an actual pit stop, both of his tyre changes were done under red flag periods. Rosberg finished second so the championship will continue to the final race of the season and Max Verstappen finished in third with a stunning drive and one of the best saves of the season.

Verstappen was in second place until he pitted for intermediate tyres and then pitted again for wet tyres, without those extra stops he would probably have finished second but may have even won. The race had four separate safety car periods spanning over 30 laps with two red flags thrown in as well, along with five retirements and a DNS as Grosjean crashed before even reaching the grid.

Felipe Massa had an incredibly emotional home GP, unfortunately crashing by the pit entry towards the end of the race before walking back down the pits and being applauded by not only the Williams mechanics but also Mercedes and Ferrari. Felipe Nasr scored the first points for Sauber all season with ninth at his home GP after starting in 21st position, though with the general insanity of the race that isn’t as impressive as it would usually be.


Only a couple of changes as usual, Verstappen’s podium takes him up to fifth and Raikkonen down to sixth while Nasr’s first points bumps him up from 20th to 17th. Those same points have also taken Sauber from 11th to 10th in the Constructors’ Championship.
