Spanish GP 2020 update offered by Barcelona circuit
Chiefs at the Circuit de Catalunya have dismissed reports that suggested the Spanish Grand Prix may be saved in Formula 1 for the 2020 season.
Spain is at risk of dropping off the schedule, as are Germany and Mexico – only one of the three is likely to remain after Liberty Media added races in Vietnam and Zandvoort to next year's calendar.
Hockenheim's bosses this week said they expect the German GP will not make it to 2020.
Reports have suggested new finances may be in play in Mexico, while it was recently suggested that fresh backing could keep Spain on the plan for 2020, giving the race's organisers more time to strike a long-term deal.
However, the race's host track in Barcelona say little movement has been made.
The circuit's statement read: "1. No agreement has been reached yet with Formula 1 in order to renew the agreement for the Spanish Grand Prix at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.
"2. The negotiations for the renewal of the agreement with Formula 1 continue, and are still open.
"3. As soon as an agreement has been reached, whether for the renewal or the non-renewal, it will be made known officially through the usual channels used by Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya."
