British Grand Prix to remain on F1 calendar for ten more years

February 9, 2024

Formula One has announced a ten-year extension agreement with the Silverstone promoter and its owner, the British Racing Drivers’ Club (BRDC), which will see the British Grand Prix remain on the F1 calendar until 2034 (inclusive). 

The partnership renewal will see the Silverstone circuit race enter its ninth decade, having first served as a race venue back in 1950.

The 2024 British Grand Prix is scheduled to take place on July 7, 2024. 

Speaking about the British GP extension, Stefano Domenicali, President and CEO, Formula One, commented:

I am delighted to announce that the British Grand Prix will remain on the calendar for ten more years with this agreement. Silverstone is an iconic venue at the heart of F1 history and as it approaches its ninth decade hosting Grands Prix, the event continues to attract fans from around the world for fantastic racing on track and the amazing fan experience of it. I would like to thank Peter Digby and the BRDC, as well as Stuart Pringle and the whole Silverstone team for their hard work and dedication to take the British Grand Prix to new heights and I look forward to working closely with them as they look to further improve the facilities and fan experience over the next ten years.

Peter Digby, BRDC Chairman, said:

I am delighted we have secured a ten-year extension to host the Formula 1 British Grand Prix at Silverstone.  This contractual security will provide a solid base for the further development of the venue as we continue to improve and transform the circuit into a year-round international motorsport and leisure destination. The 2024 Formula 1 season will start with 9 BRDC Full and Honorary members on the grid and the importance of our continued support of young drivers is particularly evidenced by the success of Lewis, Lando, George and Alex.

Stuart Pringle, Chief Executive Officer, Silverstone, added:

This long-term commitment reflects the importance of the British Grand Prix to Formula 1 and their acknowledgement of our ability to deliver a world-class experience for the British fans who are among the most enthusiastic and knowledgeable in the world.  The cheers of support for the home teams, and particularly for the British drivers on the grid, makes the Silverstone atmosphere unique and I am looking forward to harnessing this passion for our sport and taking the event to the next level in the coming decade.
