Monza will take the Grand Prix until 2024September 5, 2019
On Tuesday evening, with a huge crowd of people, a celebration was held in the central square of Milan, dedicated to the 90th anniversary of the Ferrari team, as well as the 90th anniversary of the Monza circuit.
It is logical that the official announcement of the extension of the contract with the historical highway until 2024 was timed to coincide with this event.
Live Chase Carey, the executive director of Formula 1, and Angelo Sticky Damiani, president of the Italian Automobile Federation, put their signatures on the document, which is extremely important for both national motorsport and the World Cup.
“I am very pleased to attend this event! – Carey said to the thunderous applause of the audience. – We have just extended the contract with Monza for another five years, and it was hardly possible to find a more suitable moment to announce this. Formula 1 has half a billion fans globally, we are conducting 21 races in different parts of the world, but Monza has been and remains a unique track. And there is no one who can compare with the Italian fans. So this weekend we hope to see the sea of red in Monza again! ”
Ferrari riders from different years took part in the festival, including Arturo Merzario, Rene Arnu, Mario Andretti, Gerhard Berger, Eddie Irvine, Felipe Massa and Kimi Raikkonen. Of course, it was not without the appearance in public of the pilots playing for Scuderia this season: the audience enthusiastically welcomed both Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclair, the winner of the recent Grand Prix of Belgium.
