The global financial crisis will have little effect on this weekend's Brazilian Grand Prix, with 90,000 expected to watch the penultimate round of the 2009 world championship at Interlagos on Sunday.

Sao Paulo Turismo announced on Thursday that income for the event is expected to be 13 per cent higher than last year, when the Sao Paulo venue hosted a dramatic end to the 2008 F1 calendar.

The German news agency DPA also said local hotel managers predict 100 per cent occupancy throughout the popular race weekend.
