The 2018 Brazilian Grand Prix (formally known as the Formula 1 Grande Prêmio Heineken do Brasil 2018) was a Formula One motor race held on 11 November 2018 at the Autódromo José Carlos Pace in São Paulo, Brazil. The race was the penultimate round of the 2018 Formula One World Championship and marked the forty-seventh running of the Brazilian Grand Prix and the forty-sixth time that the race was run as a World Championship event since the inaugural season in 1950. Following Felipe Massa's retirement from Formula One at the end of the 2017 season, this running of the race also marks the first time since the Brazilian Grand Prix entered the Formula One World Championship calendar in 1973 that no Brazilian driver took part.
