Formula One announced on Saturday that they have extended China’s contract to host the Cinese Grand Prix at the Shanghai International Circuit until 2025.
The news comes as Formula One has missed the last two years in Shanghai as a result of the COVID-19 global pandemic.
Speaking following the announcement, Formula One CEO Stefano Domenicali said:
“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.
