Formula 1 fans have only just been happy about a contract extension with Sao Paulo until 2025, when dark clouds are gathering over the race in Interlagos.
The Brazilian newspaper “Folha de S. Paulo” reports that the new contract was suspended again by a judge on Monday.
It is precisely about the contract between the city of Sao Paulo and the new promoter “MC Brazil Motorsport”. The judge responsible denounced, among other things, that there was no proper advertisement. A complaint had previously been received from Sao Paulo government councilor Rubens Nunes.
He wrote on Twitter: “Formula 1 is important for Sao Paulo and Brazil. I am a fan myself. But that does not authorize the mayor to sign secret contracts without a bidding process and with a company that has no experience in this area and was founded just a few days ago. “
Sao Paulo now has five days to disclose the relevant documents to the court. “MC Brazil Motorsport” replaced the previous promoter “Interpub” a few weeks ago. At the same time, the race was renamed from “Brazilian Grand Prix” to “Sao Paulo Grand Prix”.
Previously there had been rumors that the Grand Prix could return from Sao Paulo to Rio de Janeiro. However, these plans have recently stalled, which is why the contract with Sao Paulo was extended by five years. Now the court decides whether the race can really take place in this constellation.
Formula 1 is actually supposed to return to Brazil on November 14th this year after the 2020 race had to be canceled due to Corona last year.
