As we enter the final race before the 100th anniversary of the Indianapolis 500, drivers find themselves eager to win the race so coveted by Brazilian drivers.
Last year's race at Sao Paulo started off a little wet, but provided plenty of action afterwards. Marco Andretti was involved in a first-lap crash as the field entered the first tight corner.
With the double-file restarts this year, this turn is going to provide plenty of action. It will be interesting to see how the drivers approach that first turn, especially in the beginning of the race.
Will Power won the race last year, spoiling a Brazilian driver's celebration. This year, drivers are more eager to win on their "home track" before heading to Indy.
With the mess that could be waiting in turn one, drivers are really going to push it in qualifying, to make sure they are up front and out of the chaos.
Qualifying will take place on Saturday at 3 p.m., with the race beginning at noon on Sunday.
