Why Brazilian GP spectacular goes far beyond F1's sprint race hype

By:

OPINION: The Brazilian Grand Prix proved to be one of Formula 1's most thrilling weekends of the entire 2022 season, as a mixed up grid led to the series' best sprint contest to date, which helped set up a drama-filled grand prix. But, there were more factors at play that could make Brazil's thrills more common - going beyond the hype around sprint races

It is hard to argue against the Brazilian Grand Prix weekend delivering probably the best three days of Formula 1 action we’ve had all season.

From Kevin Magnussen’s shock pole position on Friday, George Russell’s surprise win in the sprint race on Saturday and then his emotional triumph in an action-packed thriller on Sunday, it was brilliant entertainment throughout. But in a world where all too often causation and correlation are confused with each other, it would be wrong to think that the treats rolled out at Interlagos were simply because it was another sprint race weekend.
