Sao Paulo is Brazil's second city, a place where extreme poverty is prevalent and yet is also the home of the country's greatest drivers - Carlos Pace, Emerson Fittipaldi, Nelson Piquet and Rubens Barrichello. It might be something in the water, but it's not advisable to put this to the test. Interlagos has been the national racing Mecca since 1940, a bumpy, sweeping, challenging circuit where overtaking is hard but not impossible and the fans fervent despite the loss of their beloved Ayrton Senna.
