The Autódromo José Carlos Pace, formerly known as Autódromo de Interlagos, is usually the scene of an unpredictable Formula 1 weekend. The changeable weather conditions have helped to shape the history of this event, along with the local enthusiasm for the sport. The South American passion and character only add up to the flavour of this F1 round.

Of all the circuits visited during the year, this is the venue where spectators get to see the cars most often as the race is a massive 71 laps long. Its layout and elevation changes also mean that it is possible to see a significant part, if not most, of the circuit from the various vantage points.

São Paulo, is Brazil's largest city and business centre. It might not be as pretty or charming as Rio de Janeiro but it is rather unashamedly cosmopolitan, partly thanks to its culture scene, excellent restaurants, hip cafes, vibrant nightlife and shopping experiences. It is also the perfect getaway for an extended holiday in this amazing country.

This year's edition of the Brazilian Grand Prix takes place on the 7-8-9 November. If you're planning to stay around, the FIA WEC finale will run from the 28th to the 30th November at this very same racetrack.

Over the last six years, the Singapore Grand Prix has made a name for itself and has become one of the highlights of the Formula 1 season. This event has such a unique vibe, it's like nowhere on the calendar. The original F1 night race ticks just about all the right boxes. The ambience is electric, the venue is exotic, glamourous and the views are spectacular under the floodlights.

The off-track entertainment is unrivalled and the city just lends itself to the party atmosphere. On top of that, Singapore is a very friendly place which is renowned for its hawker centres (street food courts) and shopping experiences.

The grand prix takes place on the 19-20-21 September 2014 and is one of the toughest and longest on the F1 schedule. Support series this year are provided by the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia and FIA Masters Historic Formula One Championship.

This year, the two stages in Zone 1 and the Padang (Zone 4) will see John Legend, Robbie Williams, Ziggy Marley, Jennifer Lopez and the Pet Shop Boys perform between or after on-track sessions. In the past, the Marina Bay event has welcomed the likes of The Killers, Rihanna, Maroon 5, Noel Gallagher, Shakira, Linkin Park, Mariah Carey, Missy Elliott or even Travis.

Smaller stages in Zone 3 or by the Esplanade Waterfront have welcomed more electronic sounds thanks to appearances by DJs such as Carl Cox or John Digweed. There are also multiple roving artists providing entertainment throughout the day, such as a drummer troupe or Brazilian dancers giving the whole weekend a carnival atmosphere.

If you also like to party on F1 style, The Podium Lounge Singapore will be held at the Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Walk (Friday to Sunday) and the glamourous Amber Lounge will take place next to the Conrad Centennial Hotel on Saturday and Sunday. The bars by the Esplanade Theatres and the Concert Hall offer a cheaper alternative for refreshments in style by the water in case it is some quiet time that you're after.

All in all, this is a stunning event that is far more than a race weekend and you get the feel for the effort the organisers put into it.
