We’ve got a record-breaking 23-race calendar coming up this season and it doesn’t look like many of races are going to be going anywhere anytime soon.

With the announcement that the US Grand Prix has  just signed a new five-year deal to stay at COTA until 2026, following record-breaking attendance last year, here’s a handy guide from us about which circuits’ contracts are secured and which are at risk in 2022 👀

The Sakhir International Circuit just signed a huge multi-year extension and currently has the longest contract in F1.

The Italian circuit still hasn’t signed a deal to ensure the race this season goes ahead, with a contract until 2025 reportedly on offer.
