"This is the first step because the priority is renewing the contract and keeping the most important international sporting event in our country at Monza until 2024," said Lombardy sport councillor Martina Cambiaghi.

Another councillor, Andrea Monti, added: "The news is that F1 is negotiating for a race in the Netherlands and has decided a date for Vietnam in 2020.
