Spain’s capital city Madrid expressed its interest in hosting F1 races in the future in the letter sent to Stefano Domenicali.

Spain is a traditional venue for Formula 1. The Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya is hosting the Spanish GP as the deal is signed until 2026.

However, Madrid has shown its interest in becoming a new Spanish location to host F1 races. Cabinet minister for the Community of Madrid Enrique Lopez sent a letter to Domenicali, in which he expressed the city’s desire to host a Grand Prix.

“It is my pleasure to write to you on behalf of the government of the Community of Madrid to express our interest in the development of a Formula 1 Grand Prix in Madrid.

“I believe that holding in Madrid a motor racing event, which is one of the most exciting sporting phenomena of our time, would be a success for all the professionals, institutions and companies involved in the development of Formula 1.

“Of course, it would also be a satisfaction for the whole region and its citizens. That is why the Government of the Community of Madrid has the greatest interest in making it possible.

“In short, I would like to confirm our commitment to you and to this project, as well as our willingness to sign the appropriate agreements to promote the race and offer a great sporting and entertainment spectacle.

“We are ready to work with you and your team to bring Formula 1 to Madrid.”
