The São Paulo Grand Prix has secured its future on the F1 calendar until the end of the decade after closing a five-year contract extension with the sport.
Interlagos is one of the best-loved tracks on the schedule, having played host to a number of iconic moments in F1 history over the years.
Ahead of track action for this year's Sprint weekend, F1 has announced a major deal extension with the race organisers, securing its future until 2030.
The extension follows investment by São Paulo Mayor Ricardo Nunes’ administration as the city seeks upgrades to the Interlagos circuit to become a venue suitable for hosting wider entertainment events.
Race promotor MC Brazil Motorsport has 'worked closely' with the city to enhance the fan experience, placing an increased focus on a number of environmental and social initiatives.
