Brazil considers GP venue switch

2013-03-19 09:30

The Brazilian Grand Prix could be set to move from Interlagos.

The popular and traditional home of Brazil's annual race, the Autodromo Jose Carlos Pace, is however regarded as perhaps the worst venue on the grid in terms of its ageing facilities.

JUST A RUMOUR?

In March 2013 rumours of a change of venue have cropped up again.

Indycar driver Helio Castroneves, whose category will race on the Sao Paulo streets in May, said: "In Brazil, the economic situation is very strong.

"I heard now that Formula 1 might move from Sao Paulo to the south of Brazil.  Obviously it's all about how much the promoters are willing to spend.

"I think it's more than just interest."
