Formula 1 will continue to visit the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya after officials confirmed that its contract has been extended.

Its current deal expired at the end of 2016 but ahead of the track's 25th Formula 1 race this weekend it was announced that the sport will stay at the circuit until the 2019 season.

"We are extremely proud to announce this renewal in such a special year, marking the 25th anniversary of Formula One Grand Prix being hosted uninterruptedly at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya," said circuit president Vicenç Aguilera.

"We thus extend this fruitful relationship with Formula One and we look forward to the next 25 years."

Formula 1 made its first visit to the venue in 1991 and has remained on the calendar ever since.
