Formula 1 chief Bernie Ecclestone says the plan is to keep F1 at Interlagos but he acknowledges that the track needs some renovation.

Brazilian media said Ecclestone visited a location for a possible new track in southern Brazil this week, but he said in a promotional event in Sao Paulo on Thursday that he is happy to keep F1 in Interlagos.

"It's an old race track, but with renovation it will be fine," he said. "We like Sao Paulo."

Local organizers have already said they plan to completely change the track's structure to give more space to teams and modernize the facility in the coming years. Initial plans are to transfer the paddock and the pit area to the back stretch.

Ecclestone made the comments after launching an F1 book with the help of former Brazil star striker Ronaldo.
