The circuit is one of the few racing circuits that go in an anti-clockwise direction. Many drivers consider Interlagos interesting because it was not built on flat terrain, but follows the ups and downs of the hilly ground. This makes it harder to drive and demands more precision. Be prepared for the noise either of the engines or for the cheering when the next Brazilian driver wins the grand prix.
