Spa, the only European circuit to host the Formula 1 Sprint in 2025

It is with great pleasure that Spa Grand Prix announces that in 2025, F1 Sprint will make its return to the Spa-Francorchamps circuit. The iconic circuit is the only European venue on the calendar and Spa Grand Prix is honoured to welcome it back.

Spa Grand Prix is delighted to announce that the F1 Sprint will return to the Spa-Francorchamps circuit in 2025. In 2023, Spa GP has already presented a Sprint race, which will be held again next year. The iconic circuit is the only European venue on the calendar and Spa Grand Prix is honoured to host it again.


2025 will mark the 75th anniversary of the FIA Formula One World Championship and the fifth season of the Sprint. The Sprint returns to Belgium for the first time since 2023. The format has produced some excellent racing over the last four seasons and multiple winners across the grid, including Max Verstappen, Valtteri Bottas, George Russell, Sergio Perez and Oscar Piastri.

F1 Sprint has proven its popularity since its introduction in 2021. The format provides solid numbers across all traditional broadcast, digital and social media platforms, as well as additional and exciting races that promoters can offer fans and, as a result, we see big crowds on the Friday of a Sprint weekend. During the 2023 season, we saw new Sprint venues increase the overall audience. Belgium was among the best performing weekends with live audience increases of 22%.

Vanessa Maes, General Manager of Spa Grand Prix, commented:
"We are very honoured that Spa Grand Prix has been designated by Formula 1 and the FIA to host the F1 Sprint in 2025. We are the only European venue on the calendar and we would like to thank Formula 1 for their confidence in us. The 2023 edition has already been a great success and we are looking forward to a great edition next year."

Stefano Domenicali, President and CEO of Formula 1, said:
“The Sprint has been a great success for Formula 1, bringing all our fans more action and racing on the track.
We are seeing the proof of this in our audience data, fan attendance on Fridays and from the promoters and
partners. As we prepare to celebrate our 75th anniversary in 2025 we will always honour our incredible
history, but we must always be looking ahead, innovating, and improving to deliver the best for our growing
and diverse fanbase. The Sprint is a great example of bringing new elements to our sport in a way that is
respectful of the Championship, and I want to thank the six venues that will host the Sprint in 2025 and look
forward to those incredible events throughout the season.”

Mohammed Ben Sulayem, President of the FIA, said:
“As the FIA Formula One World Championship celebrates its 75th anniversary in 2025, the Sprint will also
enter its fifth year as part of the competition. Over that time, and through our strong collaboration with
Formula 1 and with the input of all the teams, it has been through several different iterations and the
regulations and format have evolved to give us the exciting and popular Sprints we have today. The six events
for 2025 once again take in an interesting range of circuits and are sure to provide fans with plenty of
additional action across the season.”
