Formula 1 Extends Italian Grand Prix Contract Through 2024

Formula 1 and the Automobile Club d’Italia (ACI) have reached an agreement to host the Italian Grand Prix at the Autodromo di Monza through at least 2024, as announced during a public event held in Milan to celebrate the 90th edition of the Italian Grand Prix and, at the same time, the 90th anniversary of Scuderia Ferrari.

The fabled track has hosted more Formula 1 World Championship Grands Prix than any other venue and will continue to do so for at least another five seasons.

Also called Monza’s Temple of Speed, the track has hosted 68 Formula 1 World Championship races, and, the Drivers’ title has been decided there on twelve occasions.

“We are really pleased to have reached an agreement with the ACI which ensures the Italian Grand Prix will remain on the FIA Formula 1 World Championship calendar until at least 2024. This is one of four Grands Prix that were part of the 1950 championship… and along with the British Grand Prix, it is the only one to have been held every year since then. History, speed and passion are words that motorsport fans associate with Monza,” Formula 1 Chairman and CEO Chase Carey said.
