Interlagos needs 'some plastic surgery' – Bernie Ecclestone

Bernie Ecclestone is pushing organisers of the Brazilian grand prix 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 The circuit is regarded as one of the most outdated on the entire F1 calendar, and Speed Week reports that the sport's chief executive will meet with track officials on Saturday.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 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 it will happen soon." (GMM)
