Formula 1 has reached an agreement with Imola that will see the sport travel to the venue until at least the end of 2025.
Late last year, Emilia Romagna’s government said it had acquired the necessary funding and approval to sign a deal.
Imola was once a consistent destination on the F1 calendar under the San Marino Grand Prix title, but dropped off the schedule following the 2006 edition of the race.
However, the circuit’s presence was revived in 2020 in the form of the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix as F1 put together a fresh race calendar following the outbreak of Covid-19.
The race was the second round of the 2021 season, and has returned again for 2022 as the fourth race of the year, replacing the cancelled Chinese Grand Prix.
Now, a new deal has been reached, which will see Imola present on the schedule for the next three F1 campaigns.
“I am delighted that we will be continuing our excellent partnership with Imola for the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix until 2025,” said F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali.
“The circuit is iconic and has been part of the history of our sport and they have done an incredible job of hosting two races during the pandemic. It is a proud moment for our Italian fans to host two races and for all our fans around the world to see this fantastic circuit on the calendar for the future.
“I want to thank everyone involved in making this happen and the work of the Emilia-Romagna Region, in particular the President of the Automobile Club of Italy, Angelo Sticchi Damiani, President of Emilia-Romagna, Stefano Bonaccini, the Ministry of Economy and Finance, the Ministry for Foreign Affairs and the City of Imola.
“We are all looking forward to being back in Imola in April to thrill our fans.”
Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton and Red Bull’s Max Verstappen won the last two editions of the race.
