The 2009 Brazilian Grand Prix (officially XXXVIII Grande Prêmio do Brasil) was the sixteenth round and the penultimate round of the 2009 Formula One season. It took place at the Autódromo José Carlos Pace on October 18 2009. The race was won by Red Bull-Renault driver Mark Webber with Robert Kubica for BMW Sauber in second and Lewis Hamilton of McLaren-Mercedes in third.

Felipe Massa, despite sitting out for the rest of the season due to an injury, was the checkerflag waver.

Brawn's Rubens Barrichello set pole position for the race and led for 20 laps, but he could only manage to finish eighth in the race.

A multi-car crash occured at the start of the race between Turn 6 and Turn 7, involving Toyota's Jarno Trulli, Force India's Adrian Sutil and Renault's Fernando Alonso. Trulli tangled with Sutil while trying to make a pass into Turn 6, and both of them were knocked out of the race. Alonso was unable to avoid Sutil's Force India, and the safety car was deployed. Trulli and Sutil had a very heated exchange over the incident, and they still talked about that at the next race in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Mark Webber set the fastest lap and won the race after starting second on the grid, leading all the way for 50 laps. Robert Kubica finished second, achieving his only podium finish of the season in an unsuccessful BMW Sauber. Lewis Hamilton acquired the final podium spot in third for McLaren.

Jenson Button of Brawn finished in fifth place to claim his first and only World Drivers' Title of 2009. Finishing fifth in his car number 22 to claim the title, it coincided with last year's Grand Prix which fellow Brit Lewis Hamilton finished fifth in car number 22 to claim the title.
