The Brazilian Grand Prix may be set to move away from Interlagos, it’s traditional home since 1990.

Now 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.

Now, rumours of a change of venue have emerged.

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

“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,” the Penske driver added. (GMM)

    I would think a move away from the cesspool locale they’re now racing at would be most welcomed.
