After speculation swirled that the legendary Spa-Francorchamps track would be dropped from the Formula 1 calendar for next season, there is good news for true fans of the sport. The race for the Belgian Grand Prix was held last weekend on the Spa-Francorchamps circuit, and in the meantime, the dilemma about its future was resolved when it comes to Formula 1.
Namely, official information was published that Spa will be part of the calendar for 2023.
“Formula 1 can confirm that the Belgian Grand Prix will be on the 2023 calendar following an agreement to extend our partnership together.
Further details on the 2023 calendar will be announced in due course,” said Formula 1. “We have to congratulate the job [the race organizers] did. You’ve seen the investment they did. You see the number of people that are coming here… Incredible crowd, incredible attention to the people, and this is great.
Great I think for the sport. “We always said that the race is a part of our tradition, and it has a very important space in our calendar, and this is a fact that we wanted to share in this moment”. said the founder and director of Formula 1 Stefano Domenicali.
Bringing more entertainment
"It’s true that there has been a request from F1 to bring more entertainment. They said history is great, but we need more. We have decided to listen and follow their new way of delivering F1 events”.
“The American way, with all the entertainment that goes with it. We are planning all sorts of entertainment, with DJs, exclusive events, fans zones and activations around the circuit. You can say our legendary grand prix will also get the necessary bling.
If we want to continue hosting races in the future, we have to modernize”. said Stefano Domenicali. The Spa-Francorchamps circuit first appeared in Formula 1 in its first season in 1950, and this year's F1 race is the 55th overall at the circuit.
