Sebastian Vettel is looking for Ferrari to take advantage of his opinion that “anything can happen” at the Autodromo Jose Carlos Pace for the Brazilian Grand Prix.
Lewis Hamilton won the 2018 edition of the race, but it was perhaps remembered more by the confrontation between Max Verstappen and Esteban Ocon after it had finished, with the Dutchman angry at Ocon costing him P1 44 laps in by trying to unlap himself.
Vettel thinks it is incidents like this which makes the race one of the hardest to predict.
“Racing in Brazil, in Sao Paulo, I think in a nutshell, anything can happen. I don’t know why, but there is something about this place and this circuit. Every year, something crazy happens and, if it doesn’t you can be sure it will the following year,” the German said in his Ferrari race preview.
“This is another track that has suited us well in the past and treated us well over the last couple of years. I remember we had good pace there and Kimi was on the podium last year, while two years ago we won the race.
