Formula 1 have confirmed that the historic Imola will remain on the calendar until 2025 after making a triumphant return during the Covid pandemic.
The Italian race track, situated in the Emilia-Romagna region of the country, staged events between 1980 and 2006 but was back on the calendar in 2020 as the sport scrambled to find venues at which to race during the pandemic.
And after two fine weekends at the circuit in 2020 and 2021, it is here to stay.
Despite landing only a short contract compared to some on the calendar, Imola now has a deal longer than many circuits.
Which venues have the shortest deals?
While the Monaco GP is on the calendar for 2022, the venue's contract ran only until 2021 with a renewal currently being negotiated.
The French GP at Circuit Paul Ricard, Mexican GP in Mexico City and Austrian GP at the Red Bull Ring will all see their contracts expire during 2022, but Austria does hold an option to extend by a further two seasons.
And historic venues such as Silverstone, Suzuka and Monza will see their current F1 deals expire in 2024.
Who has the longest deals on F1's calendar?
Bahrain currently boast the longest agreement with Formula 1, with the Bahrain GP set to remain on the calendar until at least 2036 thanks to their massive new deal.
The Miami GP organisers also hold a long deal until 2031, while racing will continue in Abu Dhabi and Qatar (from 2023) until 2030 and 2031, respectively.
