Formula 1 will visit the circuit of Catalunya until 2026 for the Spanish Grand Prix. Stefano Domenicali is delighted with this new deal and of course Roger Torrent, the Catalan Minister of Trade and Labour and as well as the director of the circuit.

On Friday morning, F1 announced that the circuit in Barcelona will host the Spanish GP until 2026. The circuit has been organising the Spanish races since 1991 and has been the ideal base for Formula 1 teams for the winter test. It is not surprising that the CEO of F1 wanted to keep this circuit on the calendar.
