The British Grand Prix will remain on the F1 calendar until the 2034 season after a new 10-year deal was agreed.

The British GP at Silverstone has been a mainstay on the F1 calendar for decades, hosting the inaugural grand prix back in 1950.

It continues to be one of the most popular events of the year with a record crowd of 480,000 at the 2023 British Grand Prix.

Lewis Hamilton’s success has only elevated the event, while George Russell and Lando Norris will likely continue that when the seven-time world champion decides to retire.

It’s welcome news for the F1 fans with another iconic, traditional circuit secure on the calendar for the next decade.

Speaking of the new deal, F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali said: “I am delighted to announce that the British Grand Prix will remain on the calendar for ten more years with this agreement.

“Silverstone is an iconic venue at the heart of F1 history and as it approaches its ninth decade hosting Grands Prix, the event continues to attract fans from around the world for fantastic racing on track and the amazing fan experience of it.

“I would like to thank Peter Digby and the BRDC, as well as Stuart Pringle and the whole Silverstone team for their hard work and dedication to take the British Grand Prix to new heights and I look forward to working closely with them as they look to further improve the facilities and fan experience over the next ten years.”

Stuart Pringle, CEO of Silverstone Circuit added: “This long-term commitment reflects the importance of the British Grand Prix to Formula 1 and their acknowledgement of our ability to deliver a world-class experience for the British fans who are among the most enthusiastic and knowledgeable in the world.

“The cheers of support for the home teams, and particularly for the British drivers on the grid, makes the Silverstone atmosphere unique and I am looking forward to harnessing this passion for our sport and taking the event to the next level in the coming decade.”
