Rumour: In two months, we will hear if South Africa will return to F1 schedule

Liberty Media is working hard to get even more races on the calendar. Miami is in big talks for a second American GP and Saudi Arabia expects to be on the calendar within three years.

According to Olav Mol, a commentator for Ziggo Sport, rumours are circulating on the paddock that we can expect to hear an announcement on whether or not Formula 1 will revisit South Africa. 

The tweet translates to: "[Rumour in] the paddock says that in the coming 2 months we will hear whether the South African GP will return to the F1 calendar..."

The country has held 28 races since 1950, most of them on the Kyalami circuit. The race was last on the calendar in 1993. Kyalami has had a major upgrade in 2016. Since 2019 there are also international races on the program of the circuit. It is not yet clear whether the Kyalami circuit is actually the circuit in question.
