The first Brazilian Grand Prix was held in 1972 at Interlagos, but that was a non-championship event.

The next year, the Brazilian GP became the new championship round. The first winner of Brazilian GP was São Paulo native, Emerson Fittipaldi. The following year, Fittipaldi won again at Interlagos. In 1976, the other Brazilian, Carlos Pace won the Brazilian GP. The drivers began complaining the circuit in 1977 when Reutemann won the race. Because that, the race relocated to Jacarepagua.
