Vettel 2nd for Ferrari Red Bull Honda ace Max Verstappen put up a lap of 1.07.508s to win pole position for the Brazilian GP, the 2nd pole of his F1 career. Lacking downforce in the slow middle sector, Sebastian Vettel could only muster the 2nd quick time for Ferrari, 0.123s down on the Dutchman.

From Interlagos Brazil and rhythm go hand in hand. Paint a mental picture of Copacabana, imagine the raucous celebrations of the Carnival or even delve into the atmosphere of the lesser-known parts of the country and you're bound to draw up a vast, colorful soundtrack to go with it. Brazilians have music in their veins. Samba, bossa nova, choro and many more - even the genres reflect the uniquely varied cultural, historical and social background of the country.
