5 historic tracks that could host F1 races again in the future
Under the new ownership of Liberty Media and Chase Carey, Formula One has been constantly trying to bring in changes and new avenues of expansion. In its quest to take the sport to new countries, new tracks are being looked at.
However, with the number of races to be increased in the future, it would be wise to also consider some circuits that run the risk of being overlooked despite having the pedigree needed to host an F1 racing weekend.
Here's a look at five such destinations that F1 should seriously consider in the near future.
#5 Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit, South Africa
It would be remiss to not hold a Grand Prix in the African continent when F1 is trying to spread to newer places. The refurbished 13-turn circuit in Midrand is owned by the Porsche Group and lies just off Johannesburg.
This circuit had racing heritage as well as popularity among locals before apartheid sanctions resulted in it falling off the calendar.
South Africa would be an old 'new' place if it returns for the first time since 1992. Interestingly, being in the southern hemisphere, Kyalami used to be the venue for winter testing.
