The organisers have agreed to upgrade the race track and facilities in time for next year’s grand prix on 22 May.
It will be the sixth race on a record 23-grand prix schedule. The new contract contains a commitment to ensure that the track becomes “a model and world benchmark of sustainability”.
F1 has a corporate target to be net-zero carbon as a sport by 2030. Roger Torrent, the Catalan minister of business and labour, said:
“We want the circuit to become an exponent of the green transformation and the adaptation of infrastructures to the demands of the climate emergency.”
The Spanish Grand Prix has signed a new contract to remain on the Formula 1 calendar at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya until 2026.
