The Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, constituted by the Generalitat de Catalunya, the RACC and the City Council of Montmelo, along with the City Council of Barcelona, today reached an agreement with F1 group CEO, Bernie Ecclestone, establishing that the event will continue to be hosted in Barcelona until 2019.

With the renewed agreement, the Catalan track, which first hosted the Spanish Grand Prix in 1991, ensures the event is hosted for three additional years after the end of the current contract in 2016.

"We are extremely proud to announce this renewal in such a special year, marking the 25th anniversary of Formula One Grand Prix being hosted uninterruptedly at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya," said circuit boss Vicenc Aguilera. "We thus extend this fruitful relationship with Formula One and we look forward to the next 25 years."

"Wow, this is great news!! Not that they are extending the contract but rather they must have clearly found oil and camels in Barcelona!!! Those are the only two qualifying requirements that Bernie seems to demand these days!!"
