No approach to change Brazil GP date
Organisers of the Brazilian Grand Prix have said they have not been approached about moving the date of the race to accommodate plans to reschedule the postponed Bahrain Grand Prix at the end of the season.
On Thursday, Bernie Ecclestone suggested the Bahrain GP could be added to the calendar after Abu Dhabi and the Brazilian GP could be moved on by a week. "We'll have a look and see what we can do, how we can swap things around a bit," he said. "Maybe we can change it with Brazil, or something like that."
The suggestion is that Interlagos' November 27 date could be pushed back to December, a move that could be less than popular because of the encroaching Brazilian football season.
A spokesman for the Brazilian GP told Globo Esporte that they had not been consulted or asked about a possible date change and reiterated that November 25 to 27 is the official date for this year's race, the last on the 2011 calendar.
Ecclestone said a decision about the Bahrain rescheduling is likely next Tuesday, when the World Motor Sport Council sits in Paris.
