The São Paulo Grand Prix has secured its future on the F1 calendar
until the end of the decade after closing a five-year contract
extension with the sport. Interlagos is one of the best-loved
tracks on the schedule, having played host to a number of iconic
moments in F1 history over the years. Ahead of track action for
this year’s Sprint weekend, F1 has announced a major deal extension
with the race organisers, securing its future until 2030. The
extension follows investment by São Paulo Mayor Ricardo Nunes’
administration as the city seeks upgrades to the Interlagos circuit
to become a venue suitable for hosting wider entertainment events.
Race promotor MC Brazil Motorsport has ‘worked closely’ with the
city to enhance the fan experience, placing an increased focus on a
number of environmental and social initiatives. Brazil has a ‘rich
racing heritage’ F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali said: “I am delighted to
announce we will be staying at Interlagos until 2030, and I can’t
wait for many more years of the wonderful atmosphere that the
Brazilian fans bring. “Brazil has such a rich racing heritage, and
this iconic circuit is a favourite of drivers and fans around the
world. “It embodies everything that is great about racing, and we
look forward to seeing how it develops over the years to come to
create an even better experience.” Race CEO Alan Adler added: “It
is a great honour to have the contract extension that ensures São
Paulo’s place on the Formula 1 calendar. “This is the recognition
of the work we have been doing, with the crucial support of the São
Paulo City Hall. Continuing to be a partner of Formula 1 is a
matter of great pride. “Now, we will immediately start planning for
the years ahead so that we can have even better Grand Prix editions
in the coming years.”
