Looking at the google maps satellite image, it seems like the whole track is still there.

Did they not use this layout for the 1979 and 1980 Grands Prix?
Yes, they did - after a year's break at the Rio circuit.
Some parts of the old layout are still used, but run in the opposite direction, I think.

apparently at the end of 78 the circuit received some updates and the track lost around 100m and the exterior ring also got shortened just a bit, most of the changes were on the safety side and so some corners got pull in to generate a bit more space and run off
