Chinese GP: F1 extends Chinese Grand Prix contract till 2025- Formula 1 has extended its contract with the Chinese Grand Prix, in a move that will keep the championship visiting Shanghai until 2025.

Formula 1 made its debut in China at the Shanghai International Circuit back in 2004, with Rubens Barrichello winning the inaugural race for Ferrari. And although ongoing global struggles with the pandemic mean that the Chinese Grand Prix will not form part of next year’s record-breaking 23-race calendar, Formula 1 is aiming to return to the country as soon as possible – having last raced in China in 2019, when F1 celebrated its 1,000th race.
