After a blazing hot Australian Grand Prix, temperatures barely dropped for the Brazilian Grand Prix at the Autódromo Internacional Orlando Moura, peaking at 36°C air temperature. With the heat, fans were hoping for a great race.
Whilst qualifying saw a close brawl between Precision and Ferrari, the race pace of the black AMG-powered race cars proved superior, with Ferrari forced to focus on trying to keep their forward-pushing rivals behind them in check.
Jules Bianchi was the first to get by the Ferraris and build a major lead. Unfortunately, the heat got to him and a minor error ended up costing him not only the win, but also a chance at a top 5 finish in a year where those are crucial.
Artem Markelov had another great race, he is really profiting from the new BR Mansell car and can push as hard as a driver of his skill should be able to. Pastor Maldonado and Daniel Melrose scored their first points of 2020 as well.
