The seven F1 circuits under threat of calendar axe with contract statuses revealed

F1 circuit contract lengths are different for every track.

Silverstone and Suzuka head into the final years of their current deals with F1 in 2024.

F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali has spoken about the change in approach the sport has taken with its contracts for circuits – moving from a short/medium-term approach to looking to tie down longer-term deals for its tracks.

As a result, this places more pressure on the circuits whose deals are coming to an end to strike a new deal with F1 to secure their places on the calendar for the future.

With Madrid having become the latest city to earn a place on the schedule from 2026, taking on the Spanish Grand Prix on a 10-year deal – concerns were raised about Barcelona’s future, but Domenicali assured that the Catalan city can retain its place beyond its current 2026 end date, stressing F1 has a “very good relationship” with promoters there.

Which F1 circuits have the shortest time left on their current contracts?

The two circuits that had expiring deals in 2024 – Silverstone and Suzuka – have had their contracts renewed. Suzuka will be on the calendar until, at least 2029, while Silverstone has signed a 10-year deal up to 2034.

Seven circuits will look to extend their time in F1 beyond 2025, with their deals coming to an end next year.

Monaco and Spa-Francorchamps had agreed to shorter-term extensions until 2025, with Imola, Mexico City, Las Vegas, Monza and Zandvoort all coming up for renewal next year as well.

In announcing the upcoming Madrid venue for the Spanish Grand Prix, F1 CEO Domenicali spoke to Formula1.com about the bumper 10-year deal the city was given to host a race.

Perhaps tellingly, not only will circuits now want to keep their place on the calendar full stop, but they will want to do so on one of the lengthy new deals being offered by F1 – with the likes of Australia, Bahrain, Qatar, Austin, and Hungary all now contracted well into the 2030s.

“I’m very pleased that it’s a deal that takes us to 2035 – it’s a long time,” Domenicali said.

“This is the objective as F1, with either new or more established promoters. It allows everyone involved to plan the future and invest in the future as it is a guarantee for the promoter, for our partners, for our teams, and for our sport. It gives everyone long-term visibility.

“If you look at the past, the renewals were two years, three years, or five years maximum. Now all our new deals are going in the direction of being very long. And if they are short, there is a reason.”
