It was confirmed today that the United States Grand Prix at Circuit of The Americas in Texas will stay on the calendar until 2026, after a new five-year agreement was reached.

The venue has been a regular fixture on the calendar since 2012. Only in 2020 did it not feature as it was cancelled because of the pandemic.

It’s return last year saw 400,000 fans attend over the race meeting and the fans were treated to a thrilling duel for the victory between the title contenders, Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton.

COTA has quickly become a fan favourite and this news is bound to please fans in the United States and around the world.

Stefano Domenicali, President & CEO of Formula 1, said:

“We are thrilled to be announcing the extension with the Circuit of the Americas ahead of the exciting new 2022 season. I want to thank the promoter for their ongoing dedication and enthusiasm for Formula 1 where together we are continuing to grow the excitement around our sport in the US following the huge success of Netflix, the work of ESPN, and the incredible season we had in 2021. Austin is a great city, and the track is a favourite for all the drivers, and we cannot wait to be back in October for more action and entertainment.”

Bobby Epstein, Founding Partner at Circuit of The Americas, said:

“The Formula 1 United States Grand Prix has become one of the biggest and greatest events in the world. We are extremely proud it has found a home in Texas – at Circuit of The Americas – and are grateful to the millions of fans who visited us over our first decade. We knew Austin, along with our neighbours in San Antonio and beyond, would be welcoming hosts – and they proved it! Thanks to everyone in the Formula 1 community for supporting our endeavours and rewarding our hard work. We are glad to have renewed our commitments and look forward to many more years of World Championship racing, entertainment, and fun.”
