Yes it’s true! Head of F1, Stefano Domenicali is in South Africa having talks to determine whether the Grand Prix will return to African soils.
South Africa has not hosted a Grand Prix since 1993 with Africa being the only continent apart from Antarctica not to have a race on the current schedule.
“It is the only continent we’re not in, it’s an unbelievable demographic in population and one that we’re very keen to bring more into the Formula One world.” – says Chloe Targett-Adams, Formula One’s global director of race promotion.
The 2023 calendar also sees a new race in Las Vegas, let’s hold thumbs South Africa will be in the running too.
Lewis Hamilton is a huge fan of South Africa, back in 2021 he said “The place that I really feel is dear to my heart and most important for me is to get a race back in South Africa. I think there’s a great following out there and it would be great to be able to highlight just how beautiful the motherland is.“
