Formula 1 have solidified the future of the Japanese Grand Prix, ensuring their presence until at least 2029.

The Suzuka circuit, steeped in history and adrenaline-pumping moments, will continue to host the pinnacle of racing excitement for years to come.

Renowned for its role in shaping championship battles, Suzuka has witnessed iconic showdowns, from the legendary clashes between Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost to Max Verstappen's triumph in 2022. Now, with a new chapter unfolding, Formula 1 enthusiasts can anticipate a revamped calendar, with the Japanese Grand Prix slated for April, strategically positioned between races in Australia and China.

Stefano Domenicali, the President of Formula 1, expressed his delight at the extension, emphasizing Suzuka's significance in the sport's fabric. "Suzuka is a special circuit... I am delighted that F1 will continue to race there until at least 2029," remarked Domenicali, highlighting the enduring bond between Formula 1 and the Suzuka track.

Acknowledging the collaborative effort behind the decision, Domenicali extended gratitude to the promoter and team at Honda MobilityLand for their support in advancing Formula 1's agenda for calendar rationalization and sustainability. "Our fans in Japan embrace Formula 1 with a unique passion," he added, underscoring the commitment to enhancing the fan experience in the years ahead.

Echoing Domenicali's sentiments, Tsuyoshi Saito, President of Honda Mobilityland Corporation, emphasized the importance of continuity and sustainability in hosting the Japanese Grand Prix. "We aim to create a sustainable future... Suzuka can continue to be loved by fans around the world," Saito affirmed, outlining the collaborative efforts with local communities and government agencies to foster motorsport culture and industrial development.

As anticipation mounts for the 2024 Formula 1 season, teams and drivers gear up for the official pre-season testing at the Bahrain International Circuit in Sakhir.
