On November 7, 2010, the 2010 Brazilian Grand Prix was held at Autódromo José Carlos Pace in São Paulo, Brazil. It was round 18 of the 2010 Formula One Season. Sebastian Vettel won the race and Mark Webber came in second. Their one-two finish gave Red Bull Renault the Constructors' Championship for the first time. Still hanging on to a narrow margin of eight points with only one more race to go, the Drivers' Championship leader, Spanish Scuderia Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso followed with a third place finish.

Preview links for this race can be found within the last couple regular 'Reading And Viewing List' blog entries here at Junior's Eyes. For more articles, visit the archives.
