Monza will host Formula 1 race until at least 2024

Monza will host Italian GP Formula 1 race until at least 2024.

Home of Ferrari's passionate, Monza's race track has hosted more Formula 1 World Championship Grands Prix than any other venue. And now, the Italian Grand Prix is set to remain at the historic track for at least another five seasons until 2024.

Monza will host five more years Italian Grand Prix Formula 1 race till 2024

An agreement was announced on Wednesday between Formula 1 and the Automobile Club d’Italia (ACI) has been made - which runs until at least the end of 2024 -  during a 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 Italian Grand Prix has been on the Formula 1 calendar since 1950, the year the World Championship was established, and the race has been held at Monza every year, with the exception of the 1980 race, which was run at Imola.

 The Autodromo di Monza - known also as 'La Pista Magica' - has hosted 68 Formula 1 World Championship races, and, on 12th occasions, the Drivers’ title has been decided there. The last occasion this happened was in 1979 when Jody Scheckter secured the world championship crown.

 The highest average race speed was established here in 2003, when Michael Schumacher won at an average of 247.585 km/h, while last year, Kimi Raikkonen clocked the fastest lap on record at an average of 263.587 km/h.

Chase Carey, Chairman and CEO, Formula 1, said: 

“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. History, speed, and passion are words that motorsport fans associate with Monza. I would like to thank the ACI, especially its President, Angelo Sticchi Damiani for its efforts and this five year deal means that another part of the jigsaw for the Formula 1 of the future, is now in place. For now, we can look forward to what is bound to be another great race this weekend, as we prepare for the FORMULA 1 GRAN PREMIO HEINEKEN D’ITALIA 2020 and in the years to come.”
