The future of the Canadian Grand Prix is secure for the next ten years after officials announced a new deal in Montreal this weekend.

The new contract will see the race remain on the calendar until 2024 and will coincide with $32 million worth of investment in the paddock and control tower facilities at the circuit. This year's race was the last on the current contract, but circuit bosses and local government officials announced the extension of the deal following final practice on Saturday.

Montreal hosted its first Canadian Grand Prix in 1978 and has been done every year since with the exceptions of 1987 and 2009.
