Bottas wins the last sprint race, Sainz is third and Hamilton shines with a great comeback

As in Monza, Valtteri Bottas took victory in the sprint race of the Formula 1 Brazilian GP . The Mercedes driver won ahead of Max Verstappen and a spectacular Carlos Sainz , who added a point thanks to his third place.

The Madrid native, who came out fifth, emulated the best Fernando Alonso and thanks to a great start he placed second behind Bottas. However, he could do little to retain a Verstappen who even threatened the victory of Valtteri Bottas in the final laps. Carlos Sainz was able to keep Sergio Pérez’s Red Bull behind him. Despite the fact that the Mexican’s car had more rhythm, and despite the fact that he had the help of the DRS, he was not able to find a gap to pass the Spanish driver and finished in fourth position the sprint race of the Formula 1 Brazilian GP 1.

In the fifth, a spectacular Lewis Hamilton finished last in Sao Paulo. The Briton had been disqualified after his DRS exceeded the maximum opening of 88mm during qualifying. Hamilton also has a five-position penalty for the Formula 1 Brazilian GP for having changed the internal combustion unit of his car, so he will start tenth on Sunday.

Alonso has been twelfth

Unlike Lewis Hamilton, Fernando Alonso could not come back during the sprint race and will face the Brazilian GP twelfth after the British, Vettel and Daniel Ricciardo . Lando Norris , Charles Leclerc , Pierre Gasly , Esteban Ocon and Sebastian Vettel completed the Top-10 of the sprint race of the Formula 1 Brazilian GP. After Fernando Alonso finished Antonio Giovinazzi , Lance Stroll , Yuki Tsunoda , Nicholas Latifi , George Russell , Kimi Raikkonen , Mick Schumacher and Nikita Mazepin , who finished last.
