F1 came to an agreement that will see the Chinese GP take place at Shanghai International Circuit until at least 2025.
- The Chinese Grand Prix has not taken place since 2019 and will also not be held next season due to the effects of COVID-19.
- However, F1 will likely return to Shanghai again once the pandemic becomes less predominant and travel restrictions are lifted.
- F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali is “delighted” to keep visiting venue for an extended period of time.
What he had to say:
- “This is great news for all of our fans in China and we are delighted to announce this agreement that will see us racing in Shanghai until 2025.”
- “Our partnership with the promoter Juss Sports is incredibly strong and we look forward to continuing our long-term partnership.”
- “While we are all disappointed we could not include China on the 2022 calendar due to ongoing pandemic conditions, China will be restored to the calendar as soon as conditions allow and we look forward to being back with the fans as soon as we can.”
