MONZA, NETRALNEWS.COM - The Italian Grand Prix at Monza, which is the home race for Ferrari, will remain on the Formula 1 calendar for the next five years following a contract extension signed on Wednesday (4/9/2019) local time.
The signing was carried out in front of Ferrari fans who packed the Milan cathedral square during the 90th Italian Grand Prix race celebration, which also coincided with the 90th birthday of Ferrari.
"Monza is one of the most decisive races from our iconic races," Formula 1 president Chase Carey said when appearing on stage with the president of the Italian automotive club (ACI) Angelo Sticchi Damian and also representatives of Monza, as reported by Crash.
Monza approved an extension contract proposal last April, but has only signed it now.
All the circuits that will hold 22 race series next season already have a clear contract.
Italy and the United Kingdom are the two countries that have held grand prix every year since Formula 1 began in 1950.
Next year, the public will witness Vietnam's debut and the return of the Dutch GP which will be held at Zandvoort, while Germany will no longer be on the calendar.
