, Formula One Set to Add Second Spanish Grand Prix in Madrid

Introduction

Formula One is reportedly planning to add a second Spanish Grand Prix to its calendar starting in 2026. The iconic Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, which has hosted the race for 35 years, is set to be joined by a new circuit in Madrid.

New Circuit in Madrid

According to reports, Formula One is set to announce the new "Formula 1 Madrid Grand Prix" after registering trademarks with the name. The race will take place on a semi-permanent track located close to Barajas Airport and Real Madrid's training ground Ciudad Real Madrid.

Accessible by Public Transport

The new Madrid circuit will be fully accessible by public transport, including the city's metro network. This move aims to provide better viewing opportunities for fans, in contrast to the restricted viewing at the Las Vegas GP.

Support from F1 Officials

F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali has expressed the sport's intention to add a new race in Spain, stating that it increases the popularity of Formula One. FIA president Mohammed Ben Sulayem has also hinted at the move, emphasizing the importance of negotiating what is best for F1 commercially.

Potential Expansion

F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali has suggested that the sport could have as many as 30 races in a season. The current Concorde agreement limits the number of races to 24 until 2025, but beyond that, F1 could explore new venues, including a return to Africa.

Conclusion

If the reports are true, the addition of a second Spanish Grand Prix in Madrid will bring more excitement to the F1 calendar. Fans can look forward to witnessing thrilling races in both Barcelona and Madrid starting in 2026.
