F1 Renews With the Spanish Grand Prix Till 2026

The F1 will have a Grand Prix on 22 May 2022 in Spain, after agreeing on new terms with the organisers.

Sixth on the racing schedule, the Spanish Grand Prix organisers have committed to upgrading the track and related structures, adjusting to new F1 rules.

One of the most significant points of the new contract was the F1’s commitment to sustainable racing, with their net-zero carbon plan.

The plan outlines the F1’s drive to become a zero-emission and environment-friendly sport by 2030, a vision that is backed by the Spanish organisers.

Catalan minister of business Roger Torrent echoed similar thoughts by saying: ” We want the circuit to become an exponent of the green transformation and the adaptation of infrastructures to the demands of the climate emergency”.

Earlier this month, world leaders met in Glasgow for the COP26, and the consensus was that a sense of urgency is required at this point in time.

Swift and intentional action need to be taken by all governments if we want to have hopes of reversing the tide. The F1 has taken it more seriously than other organisations and is making necessary modifications to contracts.

This will be a big step in the right direction, not just for the sports and money, but also for the people as a whole.
