A Formula 1 announced that the São Paulo Grand Prix, which is held at the Interlagos race track, will be on the category’s calendar until 2030. The contract, which would end in 2025, was renewed for another five years.
Despite other Brazilian cities expressing interest in hosting the race, the city of São Paulo managed to reach an agreement with F1 to maintain the same terms and values as the previous agreement.
The news was released during the press conference attended by Stefano Domenicali, CEO of F1, Alan Adler, promoter of the São Paulo GP, and Ricardo Nunes, mayor of São Paulo.
The Brazilian Grand Prix, which has been held in Interlagos since 1972, was held for a few years in Rio de Janeiro. In 1978 and between 1981 and 1989 the race took place at the old Jacarepaguá Race Track.
The only time the test was canceled was in 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic. After that, she returned to the F1 calendar.
Interlagos will host the Brazilian Formula 1 Grand Prix this weekend.
