Bernie: Interlagos needs ' surgery'

2012-11-23 11:07

MIXED FEELINGS: He's talking about another South American track - but still loves Interlagos.

 
INTERLAGOS, Brazil - Bernie Ecclestone is pushing organisers of the Brazilian F1 GP to improve the ageing facilities at Interlagos.

The circuit is regarded as one of the most outdated on the entire F1 calendar and Speed Week reports that the sport's chief executive will meet  track officials on Saturday (Nov 24 2012).

Interlagos' existing GP contract runs only to 2014.

'IT WILL HAPPEN'

Brazil's Globo reports that Ecclestone recently travelled to Santa Catarina, a state in southern Brazil, to hear about plans for a proposed new F1 venue designed by Hermann Tilke. Ecclestone, however, denied he was seriously considering dumping Interlagos.

"We do not have that intention. We like Sao Paulo," he said. "It's an old race track, a bit tired, but with a good update and some plastic surgery, it'll be al right.

"I know it will happen soon."
