2014 Brazilian Grand Prix

The 2014 Brazilian Grand Prix (formally the Formula 1 Grande Prêmio Petrobras do Brasil 2014) was a Formula One motor race held on 9 November at the Autódromo José Carlos Pace in São Paulo. It was the 18th (and penultimate) round of the 2014 Formula One season and the 42nd running of the event as part of the Formula One World Championship. The 71-lap race was won by Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg after starting from pole position. His teammate Lewis Hamilton finished second and Williams driver Felipe Massa came in third. It was Rosberg's fifth victory of the season, his first in Brazil, and the eighth of his career.

Rosberg won the pole position by setting the fastest lap in qualifying and maintained his advantage when the race started. He held a one-second advantage over Hamilton by the time of his first pit stop at the end of the seventh lap. Nico Hülkenberg became the leader after Hamilton made his own pit stop on lap eight and held it until he was overtaken by Rosberg six laps later. Hamilton regained the lead upon Rosberg's second pit stop twelve laps later but did not emerge in the lead after spinning at turn four during the additional lap he spent on the track. Despite blistered front tyres, Hamilton remained within reach of Rosberg by the time of the final pit stop cycle, and after it ended, Rosberg remained narrowly in front of Hamilton. He was able to withstand pressure from his teammate for the rest of the race to secure the win.

The result meant Rosberg reduced Hamilton's advantage at the top of the Drivers' Championship to 17 points behind his teammate while Daniel Ricciardo secured third place in the standings despite retiring with a suspension issue. Sebastian Vettel and Fernando Alonso each gained one position to move into fourth and fifth places. Mercedes increased their unassailable lead in the Constructors' Championship to 278 points ahead of Red Bull Racing with one race left in the season.
