While he is not yet considering retirement, at 37 years old Lewis Hamilton is in the twilight of his F1 career and may no longer be in the sport by the time it returns to Africa
Lewis Hamilton may never get the chance to achieve his dream of being part of Formula 1’s return to Africa after the provisional 2023 race calendar was revealed.
The FIA announced the expected return of the Chinese Grand Prix for next season, after a three-year absence since the start of the Covid pandemic. And the new Las Vegas Grand Prix is also on the schedule, as well as a race in Qatar which was skipped this year as the country hosts the football World Cup.
But notably absent from the list was a return to South Africa. F1 has not visited Kyalami for three decades, though there was plenty of talk about negotiations for it to make a return to the world championship.
