Baku, June 24, AZERTAC
The government of the Spanish city of Madrid has written to Formula 1 CEO Stefano Domenicali to register its interest in hosting a grand prix in the future, according to Racer.
F1 has received a number of approaches from potential host venues wanting to join the calendar, as the sport enjoys strong growth and has been expanding its schedule. With Las Vegas and Qatar confirmed as joining in 2023 and the sport working on a potential South African Grand Prix at Kyalami, Enrique Lopez Lopez — the Cabinet Minister of Justice, Interior and Victims of the Community of Madrid — has stated Madrid’s desire to become a host.
The expression of interest comes despite Barcelona already holding a contract until 2026 to host the Spanish Grand Prix, and following comments from Domenicali that Nice is another European city keen to join the calendar amid uncertainty over the futures of the races in France and Monaco.
