Monza will continue to be the home of the Italian Grand Prix until at least 2025 after a new deal was agreed.

Monza mayor Dario Allevi confirmed the news whilst also announcing that the Italian Grand Prix will be part of the European legs on the revised 2020 Formula 1 calendar, which is due to set in stone later today.

“While many circuits have had to give up because of the health emergency, Monza will be there,” Allevi said.

“Albeit behind closed doors. And Formula 1 has decided to extend the contract, just stipulated, with our race track by one year.

“Racing cars will continue to speed through the temple of speed until at least 2025.”

The 2020 edition of the Italian Grand Prix is set to be held on its original scheduled date of September 6, with Ferrari looking for back-to-back wins at the circuit for the first time since their three-year winning streak back in 2001, 2002 and 2003.

The season openers are set to be held at the Red Bull Ring in Austria with races on back-to-back weekends starting from July 5.
