Barcelona knows nothing about rival Madrid bid

Circuit de Catalunya boss Jose Luis Santamaria says he knows “nothing” about plans to get a Formula 1 race on the streets of Madrid up and running. The current Spanish GP contract with the venue outside Barcelona runs until 2026, and plans appear to be well advanced for a potential switch to Madrid after that. When asked about Madrid’s rival bid, Santamaria said all he knows is that the Circuit de Catalunya intends to remain on the F1 grid “in the long term”. “We are immersed in a strategic plan for investment, adaptation and improvement of the facility, this always has to be linked to long-term contracts,” Santamaria added.
