The 2018 Brazilian Grand Prix (officially the Formula 1 Grande Prêmio Heineken do Brasil 2018)[1] will be the twentieth race of the 2018 Formula One season, the forty-sixth time the Brazilian Grand Prix will be held on the Formula One calendar, and the thirty-sixth time it will be held at Autódromo José Carlos Pace. It will be held between 9 November and 11 November 2018.

In qualifying, Lewis Hamilton took his eighty-second pole position and Mercedes' one-hundredth pole, despite an incident with impeding Sergey Sirotkin during Q2 while they were on their out-laps. Sebastian Vettel joined him on the front row, and Valtteri Bottas qualified third on the grid.

In the race, Hamilton led early, but was overtaken by Max Verstappen. Verstappen looked to have the race in hand, before he collided with Esteban Ocon while trying to put Ocon a lap down. Verstappen recovered to run in second, but could never quite catch Hamilton. Kimi Räikkönen drove a solid race to take third.
