Walloon Minister for the Economy said said he was pleased with the new deal following improved ticket sales for last year’s Belgian Grand Prix.
“This is a good deal which makes sure that such an important event stays in our region, thus placing us on a global visibility platform,” he said.
“The regional and national economic benefit is significant: in 2017 we had a return on investment of 315% and ticket sales increased by 7.5%. It is also a significant first for us as we have now concluded a successful and rewarding
negotiation with Formula 1.”
