Formula One has announced the Japanese Grand Prix will remain at Suzuka until at least 2024.
The track has been a regular fixture on the F1 calendar for more than 30 years and the venue for a number of title deciders.
Commenting on the new deal, F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali said: “I am truly delighted that Formula One will continue to race at Suzuka Circuit for another three years.
“Japan holds a special place in the hearts and minds of F1 fans all over the world and Suzuka has played host to many of the sport’s most legendary moments, with 11 drivers’ titles being decided there.
“This extension is part of our long-term commitment to growing the sport in Asia and we are pleased to be able to continue our successful relationship.”
