Formula 1 negotiates, in the words of Stefano Domenicali, president and CEO of Liberty Media, his return to Africa with a grand prix in South Africa: “I would say that it is very important that a championship be run around the world. The possibility of a GP in Africa? Negotiations are underway, but we are still in the initial stages ”.
In addition, the F1 leader does not rule out the possibility of bringing the calendar to 25 appointments in the future and focusing on the present does not close the door to China being able to host a race this year 2021: “China and the United States continue to be very important markets for us”, adds Domenicali in an interview with the FIA magazine. “In China we are only in Shanghai and we must continue with our strategy because it is a great market with a lot of potential. A pity that both in 2020 and until now we have not been able to go there because of COVID. But who knows, if we could find a date to get it back, we could do it. We have to be flexible “Domenicali explained.
And in this sense, in the present of the competition, the F1 leader also does not rule out the possibility that the dates to be recovered in the Asian giant will be solved with a double appointment, a formula already adopted last season
