Back from vacation after a month of August spent in Africa, Lewis Hamilton is calling for a great revolution in Formula 1. Indeed, the one who has been World Champion on multiple occasions continues to campaign for a Grand Prix to be back in Africa. And a piece of news seems to have disappointed him a lot…

It has now been 30 years since the circuit of Kyalami was not practiced during a Grand Prize in Formula 1. Indeed, between 1967 and 1993, this South African circuit hosted around twenty events. However, this is no longer the case, while the Belgian Grand Prix was recently added to the next calendar, after its one-year extension. To the dismay of a certain Lewis Hamilton

“I am disappointed that no agreement has been reached”

For a few weeks now, negotiations have been underway for a Grand Prix to return to the circuit of Kyalami. However, these negotiations were unsuccessful. Lewis Hamiltonback after a vacation in Africa in August, seems disappointed with this failure, but also wants to put things into perspective as he explained, reported by F1i : “ I am disappointed that no agreement has been reached, despite everything Stefano Domenicali has done an incredible job of trying to make this happen and the fact that these discussions have taken place is already a big step forward “.

“I greatly supported the debates in the background”

Lewis Hamilton would indeed have been working for a long time on the return of a Grand Prix to Africa. However, for the moment, this cannot be done. But the Brit seems to be very supportive of this approach. ” I strongly supported the debates in the background so that this return is possible from next season, and I still hope that this will be the case. I know Spa is confirmed but never say never, we need a Grand Prix there “. What to add a little more weight to this candidacy of the circuit of Kyalami

15M€ in compliance costs

These discussions between Formula 1 and the South African authorities would have come to nothing, in particular because of the cost of such a return of the South African Grand Prix. Indeed, to bring the circuit up to standard, it would be necessary to pay an amount of around €15 million. A lack of support from the local government would also have slowed down this long-awaited return by Lewis Hamilton, who has just returned from his vacation in Africa, where he spent his August. The Briton will therefore have to be patient. Waiting, Lewis Hamilton, who are yet to claim a win this season, have their sights set on the next competition, in Italy, which will take place on September 11. ” Am I thinking about my first win of the season? Clearly, but sometimes she’s right there, and sometimes she’s miles away. I don’t know what to expect in the upcoming races, but hopefully we get another track that suits our car like this. If so, once again, we won’t let them go. “.
