Monza Secures New Five-Year F1 Deal

One of the most historic Grand Prix venues looked to be under threat in recent times - however it has been announced that Monza have 'agreed in principle' a new five-year extention to their hosting of F1 racing.


Having been one of the most popular and important Grand Prix since the beginning of modern Formula One racing in 1950, the future of the Italian Grand Prix at Monza appears to have been secured for a further five years thanks to what the Automobile Club of Italy (ACI) have announced as an 'agreement in principle' with the Formula One group.

Having hosted more Formula One Grand Prix than any other circuit in the history of the sport, and with the honour of being known as the spiritual home of Ferrari and the passionate Tifosi, an agreement to continue racing at the Monza circuit is good news for both the sport and its fans.

The new deal is set to begin in 2020, and will run for five years until the conclusion of the 2024 racing season.

Any track that's popular in Sim racing is not going anywhere.....Like saying Spa is going off the calendar.

Having been there recently I have a new found love for this circuit. You can tell Motorsport is deeply rooted in the culture in that part of the world and you can feel it when you're there.

Happy to hear this news.
 
One of the most boring tracks next to Spain in the F1 season. I know it's iconic and what not, but doesn't change the fact that it's boring as all hell to watch
 
That's good to hear. Only Silverstone still to go now... Let's hope we can keep all these historic tracks!
 
LoL this isn't news, Monza, Monaco and Spa are F1 (the holy trinity imo, there are other main contenders but these most of all). If any of those go for any reason at all, expect push back and or massive losses.

News would be Monza not renewed. This is business as usual.

wtf are you even talking about, did you even watch last years race? its was probably the best race of the season.

 
Silverstone,Monza,Spa and Monte should be on the calender free of charge. To think of there not being a GP at Silverstone is a travesty

I don't think I'm alone in this, but...I think the track itself is kinda mediocre, but I would raise holy hell if it were left off the calendar. You can really feel the F1 vibe pulsing from the grandstands!
