Domenicali also wants to expand the schedule to new sites around the world, even if that means some traditional sites are being phased out.
The last time an F1 race was held in Africa was in 1993
Kyalami was the mainstay of the F1 calendar between the 60s and the 80s but in 1993 it hosted its last race, in fact, the last race on the African continent. Looks like if you are to believe F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali, Kyalami is very interested in making a return to the F1 calendar.
“We received interest from Kyalami to be back on the schedule. Of course, we talked to them to see if they are technically, financially ready to be put into the schedule. the timeline, so the discussions are there. We have received other requests from other countries in Africa … for now, I have to keep this confidential, “he told TUSEN.
2022 will also host its first race in Miami which will take place on May 8 and Domenicali has been open to having even more races than the 23 currently scheduled for the 2022 season. Domenicali has also expressed interest in expanding the schedule to new venues in across the world, even if this means that some traditional European sites are being abandoned.
“How many do we want in Europe, America, the Middle East, Asia and the Far East? I see fewer GPs in Europe, more in the United States, and more in the Middle East and Asia. It’s something that is part of the evolution of a business and it’s entertainment. Of course, we are aware of the importance of tradition and this gives you the ingredients for the future. But if you live by tradition, you don’t live long. the future, “he told GQ Magazine a few months ago.
Even in 2022 Zandvroot was added to the calendar and then later in the year Saudi Arabia will have their first F1 race and there is a chance that even Doha will get a race.
