ANKARA (AA) – The Formula 1 announced on Thursday that it will keep the Singapore Grand Prix until 2028 as a contract for the seven-year extension has been signed.
"F1 will therefore continue to visit the city of Singapore from 2022 to 2028 inclusive after a multi-year extension was agreed between Singapore GP Pte Ltd (SGP), the Singapore Tourism Board (STB), and Formula 1," the race organizers said in a statement.
The Singapore Grand Prix, which made its debut in 2008, will return in the 2022 season.
The race, which takes place at Marina Bay Street Circuit, was canceled in 2020 and 2021 due to the coronavirus outbreak.
In addition, the Singapore GP is one of the special Grands Prix as it was the first night race in the Formula 1 history.
The 23-round Formula 1 season will begin with the 2022 Bahrain Grand Prix in Sakhir on March 20.
