Spanish Grand Prix secured until 2020

27 August 2019

The Formula 1 Spanish Grand Prix will continue to be held at the Circuit de Barcelona – Catalunya for another year.

Negotiations between Formula 1 and the Circuit de Barcelona – Catalunya will continue in a bid to extend the partnership beyond 2020, Formula 1,  Chairman and CEO, Chase Carey has said.

The first Spanish Grand Prix was held in 1951 at Barcelona’s Pedralbes street circuit. It was also run at another street track in the Catalan capital, in Montjuich, which alternated hosting the race with the Jarama circuit, near Madrid. From 1986 to 1990, the race moved to Jerez de la Frontera, before making the Barcelona Catalunya circuit its home as from 1991. Therefore, next year will also mark the thirtieth consecutive year that the Spanish Grand Prix has been held at the track in Montmeló.

Chase Carey said: “The decision to continue to stage a round of the pinnacle of motor sport in Spain, a country  with  a  great  motor  racing  tradition,  dating  back  to  the  start  of  the  last  century,  is  part  of  our strategy of maintaining Formula 1’s European roots, while also currently expanding the championship into new territories.

“The promoter’s willingness to be part of Formula 1 going into 2020 is proof of the sport’s ability to act as a catalyst for regions to hold world class events and also to have a positive impact on the area’s economy. In the coming months, we will continue our discussions to see if we can further extend this advantageous relationship.”
