The Automobile Club d’Italia has confirmed that Formula 1’s Italian Grand Prix will continue to be held at Monza until at least 2025.
Monza’s mayor Dario Allevi revealed last week that a one-year extension had been agreed to the original contract with Formula 1’s commercial rights holder Liberty Media.
After years of uncertainty it was confirmed last September that the ACI and Formula 1 had reached a new five-year deal, covering 2020 to 2024.
In ratifying the decision to hold a behind closed doors Italian Grand Prix on September 6, as part of a revised 2020 calendar, the ACI confirmed on Friday that its deal with Formula 1 now also covers the 2025 season.
ACI President Angelo Sticchi Damiana labelled the decision to hold a 2020 event as an “important sign of restart and rebirth for all” amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Monza, one of the oldest permanent circuits in the world, has hosted Formula 1’s Italian Grand Prix in each year of the championship, aside from in 1980.
