Nov.23 (GMM) Bernie Ecclestone is pushing organisers of the Brazilian Grand Prix to improve the ageing facilities at Interlagos.
Interlagos' existing Grand Prix contract runs only to 2014.
Brazil's Globo reports that Ecclestone recently travelled to Santa Catarina, a state in southern Brazil, to hear about plans for a proposed new Formula One venue designed by Hermann Tilke.
Ecclestone, however, denied he is seriously considering dumping Interlagos.
"We do not have that intention," he said. "We like Sao Paulo.
"It's an old race track, a bit tired, but with a good update and some plastic surgery, it'll be alright," added Ecclestone.
"I know it will happen soon."
