Interlagos ‘99%’ sure it will see off Rio bid for F1’s Brazilian GP

Brazilian Grand Prix promoter Tamas Rohonyi is ‘99%’ confident the race will stay at Interlagos, despite a mooted switch to a new Rio track for the 2021 Formula 1 season.
F1 chiefs have been in discussions with representatives from a new track in Rio about switching the country’s race there, with Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro supporting that project and declaring earlier this year that it was “99%” likely to happen.
He sees Interlagos as the only realistic option for a Brazilian GP.
Rio previously hosted the Brazilian GP in 1978 (pictured below) and from 1981-89 but the Jacarepagua track used for those events has been demolished.
