The 2021 season of Formula One began with a thrilling Grand Prix at the Bahrain International Circuit and a similar experience is expected from the rest of the season. However, F1 President Stefano Domenicali revealed his plans for the next season.
The president is already busy working with the rule and regulations for 2022 which will increase the excitement and also the financial resources. However, Domenicali is also interested in hosting a Grand Prix in Africa along with the USA and China as candidates for next season.
F1 president stated, “I would say that it is very important that we run a championship all over the world. The possibilities of a GP in Africa? Discussions are ongoing, but we are still in the initial stages.
“China and the United States remain very important markets for us.”

Formula One has shown to stand up against racism and also the seven-time champion Lewis Hamilton supported to host a Grand Prix in Africa. Therefore, talks are already happening with Warren Scheckter, CEO of South African GP. There are rumors to host an African Grand Prix in 2023 at the Kyalami Circuit, which last hosted the Formula One in 1993.
