(Image belongs to: - All rights belong to the owners)

As we wind down to the end of the 2014 Season, it's time for the teams to prepare for the Brazilian GP. 

The "Autódromo José Carlos Pace" or "Interlagos Circuit" is located in São Paulo, Brazil. This is one of the more historical circuits and has been around since it opened in 1940. However, the first F1 race did not take place until 1972.

The circuit is 2.677 miles and is one of the shortest circuits on the current F1 calendar. The race consists of 71 laps. There are 15 turns and it runs Anti-Clockwise. It has a capacity of 60,000! 

The weekend has a very rainy forecast, with some possible lightning. Things are still planned to go ahead as usual, but we could definitely see some delays.

Last year's race, Sebastian Vettel started on Pole and won the race, continuing his winning streak. Mark Webber came in 2nd and Fernando Alonso in 3rd.

Retirements included: Charles Pic (Suspension failure), Valtteri Bottas (Collision damage) & Romain Grosjean (Engine failure)
