Rio de Janeiro has joined the long list of venues that intends to host a Formula 1 race in the future.

The Brazilian city’s mayor, Eduardo Paes, is currently seeking to negotiate with F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone to make Rio the location for a second Brazilian Grand Prix, which means the Interlagos circuit would not be replaced.

"Be prepared Sao Paulo because I am going to steal the Formula 1 from you," Paes is quoted as saying by the Indo-Asian News Service.

Interlagos will continue to host the F1 until 2015 with Paes clarifying that he won’t dispute for the event unless Ecclestone rules that he won’t feature more than one Brazilian GP in a single year’s calendar.

Rio de Janeiro previously hosted the Brazilian GP from 1978 to 1989 at the Jacarepagua track.
