These historic circuits—Monza and Imola—have a rich legacy in F1. Both are beloved by fans and hold a special place in the hearts of racing enthusiasts. Liberty Media, the sport’s promoter, intends to implement a revised fee for hosting F1 races. Reportedly, this fee could be as high as $30 million per event. Meeting this financial demand will be challenging for both circuits. So, Will there still be two F1 GPs in Italy after 2026?

F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali replied to the question, “Possible, but very difficult. Imola, Monza, and Italy are a central part of the calendar, but issues that concern resources and infrastructure must be addressed.”

However, ACI Italy and Liberty Media are currently in talks to confirm two Formula 1 Grand Prix races in Italy until 2030. However, covering the costs solely through ticket sales won’t suffice. A comprehensive plan must be presented to leverage the global GP platform for promoting and enhancing Italy abroad.

According to reports from Autosport, the primary goal is to allocate points to the top 12 finishers instead of the current top 10. However, the changes will primarily affect the lower positions rather than the podium spots. Specifically, starting from eighth place, there will be a descending scale of points awarded, ranging from 5 points for eighth down to 1 point for the 12th place finisher.
