Ecclestone discusses Brazil GP with president Temer

Bernie Ecclestone detoured to the Brazilian capital Brasilia on his way to the Brazilian grand prix in Sao Paulo.

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

"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.

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

UOL claims Ecclestone and Temer spoke for more than 30 minutes, amid rumours F1's 86-year-old CEO considers Brasilia and Buenos Aires (Argentina) to be potential alternative South American hosts for the sport.
