The return of the Sprint is certain to provide some added spice in Brazil to what has been an epic title battle between Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton - and you can watch the Sao Paulo GP all live on Sky Sports this weekend.
Just one week after Verstappen dominated in Mexico and with four races remaining in five frantic weeks, F1 returns to South America for the first time in two years at the iconic Interlagos track.
The Dutchman is in pole position to win a first world title, having established a 19-point lead thanks to his win in Mexico City.
However, with Verstappen and Hamilton having collided in Sunday's races after both previous Sprints this season at Silverstone and Monza, who knows what is set to unfold in Brazil between the grid's big two, plus respective teams Red Bull and Mercedes.
There's three days of competitive action this weekend with qualifying on Friday, the short Sprint 'race' on the Saturday and the showpiece Sao Paulo GP on the Sunday.
The key times for the weekend are:
- The Sao Paulo Grand Prix starts at 5pm on Sunday, with build-up from 3.30pm
The live coverage starts on Thursday night from Sao Paulo with The F1 Show at 7.30pm, while the track action gets underway from 3.30pm on Friday.
