F1: Brazilian Grand Prix Parking Guide

The F1 is heading to Sao Paulo for the Brazilian Grand Prix this weekend, and if you are a fan who is lucky enough to go and spectate, here is everything you need to know about parking for the Interlagos track.

Parking at the Automodromo Jose Carlos Pace, more commonly known as the Interlagos track, can be quite tricky as there is no official parking available. Some local residents do rent out their parking spaces for the day or weekend, but this can not be guaranteed.

Many local experts advise that the best thing to do is to park in Sao Paulo city centre, and to get the metro to the track, or get a Taxi or Uber.

There are a lot of Taxis and Ubers available but be aware that it can be quite a pricey option with the petrol prices skyrocketing and heavy traffic is a problem so expect it to take a lot longer. However, it can be the safest way to travel around, with red and white taxis offering a more safe and more comfortable drive.

Another option for parking away from the track is to hop on a Grand Prix shuttle bus. As the buses can use the city’s bus lanes, they are able to avoid a lot of the traffic. The F1 Express shuttle buses run on a Friday, Saturday, and Sunday and they have various pick up points across Sao Paulo. The pick-up locations and closest car parks to those are below.

  • Jabaquara Subway Station Express – Rua Jequitibás, 189. There are a number of car parks available a short walk from this bus stop, including DACs Park – Unit Jabaquara, Union Auto Park, and MultiPark Centro Commercial Jabaquara.
  • República Express – Repúblic Square, Interlagos Shopping Mall Express, Av. Interlagos 2.255. The easiest car park here is for the shopping centre.
  • Congonhas Airport Express – Congonhas Airport. There is airport parking available, however this might be a more expensive option to go for.

The shuttle buses (unfortunately not equipped with DRS) stay at the pick-up locations until they are full and they run from 6am to 1pm for drop offs at the circuits and then from 3pm-5pm for returning back. A return ticket is roughly R$38 and R$27 for one way and can be purchased on the day.

The Brazilian GP is the penultimate race of the 2022 season and although Red Bull’s Max Verstappen has already taken the win for the driver’s championship for the second year in a row, the battle is still ongoing for second between Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc and Red Bull’s Sergio Perez.
