Mar.19 (GMM) The Brazilian Grand Prix could be set to move from Interlagos.

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.

"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 One 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.
