Brazilian journalists have played down Bernie Ecclestone’s warning that the Interlagos race in November could be the last.
F1 supremo Ecclestone triggered alarm this week when he said: “It could be that the grand prix in Brazil this year is the last.”
But experienced Brazilian journalist Victor Martins told UOL’s Grande Premio programme that the 85-year-old Briton’s threat is “puerile and childish”.
“At the end of the day, Brazil has a contract until 2020 at least,” he said.
And Martins’ colleague Gabriel Curty added: “F1 always complains about breaches of contract, so it does not seem logical that now he (Ecclestone) wants to break such a long agreement.”
