(ANSA-AFP) – SPA-FRANCORCHAMPS, AUGUST 28 – The Belgian Grand Prix will be on the F1 World Championship calendar also in 2023. This was announced by the promoter of the world championship, just before the 2022 edition of the race on the circuit of Spa-Francorchamps.

“Formula 1 can confirm that the Belgian Grand Prix will be featured in the 2023 calendar, following an agreement to extend our partnership. Further details on the 2023 calendar will be announced in due course,” announced the group that manages Formula 1. in a short press release.

Thus, while the French GP disappears from the 2023 calendar, its Belgian ‘neighbor’ remains but it is only a ‘truce’, because the contract has only been renewed for one edition. For the long-term future of the Belgian Grand Prix, discussions continue between the protagonists, in particular on a possible rotation with other European Grand Prix.

Now it remains to be understood what will happen to the Monaco GP in Monte Carlo, because the agreement to run this race has not yet been renewed but it should be on the calendar. Formula 1 CEO Stefano Domenicali explained on Wednesday that “we would like to implement a sort of rotation that allows everyone to be part of the calendar”. “There are consortia and localities – he added – that are discussing among themselves to submit a proposal to us”.

Faced with the growing interest in F1 from financial groups and investors represented by the newcomers to the championship (Saudi Arabia, Miami, Las Vegas next year), “history is not enough,” explained Domenicali. In the list of the most disputed F1 Grand Prix in the world championship from 1950 to today, the Belgian GP is in fourth place with the 67th edition that is taking place today. (ANSA-AFP).
