Formula 1 Group CEO Stefano Domenicali has revealed that the African continent could soon referee a Grand Prix in the premier discipline of motor racing.
“We have requests from Africa. We are talking with South Africa and a country in North Africa, as well as two from the Far East, such as South Korea, ”the ex-Ferrari boss told Bild on Wednesday.
Another South Africa, which hosted the last F1 Grand Prix on the continent in 1993, is Morocco which should be a candidate, according to the Moroccan site 360 Sport. The Cherifian Kingdom is also the only Maghreb country to have expressed an interest in hosting a stage in the calendar of this discipline.
As a reminder, an F1 Grand Prix was organized in Morocco in 1958 at Ain Diab in Casablanca. This race was won by Briton Stirling Moss.
