“This contract extension, the results of the fruitful relationship between Formula 1 and Mobilityland (the circuit homeowners), is a part of the long-term strategic dedication to develop the game in Asia,” said a Formula 1 statement.
“Japan has an avid fan-base and with exciting young talent Yuki Tsunoda who became the first Japanese driver on the grid since 2014, Formula 1 will continue to work with the promoter to further increase the sport’s popularity there.”
