Bernie Ecclestone made a visit to the Brazilian capital Brasilia in a bid to secure the future of the Brazilian Grand Prix.

The F1 supremo met with new Brazilian president Michel Temer, according to the local news source UOL,

"UOL Esporte has found that the issue of discussion was the continuation of the grand prix of Brazil at Interlagos after 2016," the report claims.

Long-time F1 host Interlagos has only been granted provisional status on the 2017 calendar, after organisers reportedly fell behind with promised circuit upgrades.

UOL claims Ecclestone and Temer spoke for more than 30 minutes, with the F1 supremo considering Brasilia and Buenos Aires (Argentina) to be potential alternative South American hosts for the sport.
