F1 boss says Interlagos needs some plastic surgery
23 November, 2012
The circuit is regarded as one of the most outdated on the entire F1 calendar, and Speed Week reports that Ecclestone will meet with track officials on Saturday.
Interlagos’ existing grand prix contract runs only to 2014.
Brazil’s Globo reports that Ecclestone recently travelled to Santa Catarina, a state in southern Brazil, to hear about plans for a proposed new Formula One venue designed by Hermann Tilke.
Ecclestone, however, denied that he is seriously considering dumping Interlagos.
“We do not have that intention,” he said. “We like Sao Paulo.
“It’s an old race track, a bit tired, but with a good update and some plastic surgery, it’ll be alright,” added Ecclestone. “I know [that] it will happen soon.”
