Sao Paulo denies Interlagos to be dropped from 2014 calendar

Sao Paulo's mayor has dismissed reports Bernie Ecclestone is close to dropping Interlagos from the F1 calendar after 2013. F1's chief executive was quoted by O Estado de S.Paulo newspaper as saying the city will not be on the 2014 calendar because long-promised renovations to the ageing circuit were not done.

But mayor Fernando Haddad, the new mayor of Sao Paulo, told Agencia Estado news agency that the reports were "irresponsible". "More than a month ago I sent a letter (to the FIA) committing myself to reform the racetrack," he said. Haddad said reports Interlagos will not be on the 2014 calendar are therefore not true. (GMM)
