Formula 1 have extended their contract with the Singapore Grand Prix, keeping the race on the calendar for a further seven years, from 2022 to 2028.

The Marina Bay Street Circuit first hosted F1 in 2008, and has since become a frequent addition to the schedule. There has been no race held at the venue since 2019 due to the coronavirus pandemic, but a Grand Prix is set to take place later in the 2022 season.

"I am delighted that Formula 1 will continue to race in Singapore for another seven years," said Stefano Domenicali, CEO of Formula 1.

"The Marina Bay Street Circuit hosted the first night race in F1 history in 2008, and Singapore hascontinued to thrill fans, teams, and drivers ever since.

"Singapore holds a special place on the F1 calendar, and this extension is part of our long-term commitment to continue to grow the sport in Asia.

"The plans that are in place to reduce the carbon footprint of the event are impressive and align with our plans to be Net Zero Carbon as a sport by 2030 and I look forward to continuing our successful relationship with Singapore GP and the Singapore Tourism Board as Formula 1 returns to this incredible city."

Singapore becomes the latest Grand Prix on the calendar to renew its contract with F1, with other venues such as Monaco and Austin also thought to be in negotiations for a renewal.
