Paris - The Belgian Grand Prix will remain on the F1 calendar until at least 2021 after Formula One and the Spa GP signed an extension on Wednesday.

"We are really pleased to have reached this agreement which means that the F1 Belgian Grand Prix will stay on the calendar for a further three years," said F1 business development official Chloe Targett-Adams.

"F1 was born in Europe and the future of this sport needs to maintain its solid roots, while expanding globally and Spa-Francorchamps is part of that fantastic history." 

Pierre Yves-Jeholet, minister for the economy in the Wallonia region, added: "This is a good deal which makes sure that such an important event stays in our region, thus placing us on a global visibility platform."

The 2018 Belgian Grand Prix will take place on the weekend of August 24-26.
