The 2013 Brazilian Grand Prix (formally known as the Formula 1 Grande Prêmio Petrobras do Brasil 2013) was a Formula One motor race that was held at the Autódromo José Carlos Pace, in São Paulo, Brazil on 24 November 2013. The race, which was the last Grand Prix appearance for Australian driver Mark Webber, was the nineteenth and final round of the 2013 Formula One season, and marked the 42nd running of the Brazilian Grand Prix. This was also the last race for the 2.4 litre V8 naturally aspirated engines; they were replaced in 2014 with 1.6 litre V6 turbocharged engines with energy recovery systems.

The race, contested over 71 laps, was won by Sebastian Vettel, his ninth straight Grand Prix victory, driving a Red Bull.[2][3] His team-mate Webber finished in second place on his final race, and Fernando Alonso finished third for Scuderia Ferrari.

The McLaren team had scored no podiums during the season for the first time since 1980.

Report[edit]

Background[edit]

Tyres[edit]

Like the previous Brazilian Grand Prix, tyre supplier Pirelli provided its orange-banded hard compound tyre as the harder "prime" tyre and the white-banded medium compound tyre as the softer "option" tyre.

The teams will also be testing the company's new tyres for 2014 in the Friday Free Practice sessions.[4][5]

Qualifying[edit]

All qualifying sessions were held in wet conditions. Intermediate tyres were mainly used for Q1 and Q2. Q3 was delayed 45 minutes because of rain, and all drivers started with full-wet tyres, but they ended the session with the intermediate tyres.
