F1’s CEO also said for Sky Sports that Las Vegas is considered to hold a Grand Prix, with other major cities lining up and expressing interest. He didn’t name any, but we can expect some requests from Asia and South America. If everyone agrees to pick Las Vegas for 2023, then it would be the first race after an absence of over 39 years. And it looks like it might happen since Domenicali confirmed last year "there will be two races in the U.S."
On the same topic of venues to race in, the man added that some promoters have contracts in place that will expire soon, and it may be possible that more than two places won't be visited by F1 in 2023 and the years to come. That's also one of the reasons why motorsport is looking for new circuits.
Changes for F1 are surely coming because Domenicali argues that not only Andretti is looking to enter Formula 1. He confirms there are four solid requests for a place on the grid. Unfortunately, the CEO is not convinced that this is the right move. He would keep the same number of 10 teams, and instead of adding more cars, he’d like more races.
Formula 1 has 23 races scheduled for 2022. The last one is set to happen in Abu Dhabi between the 18th and 20th of November.
Regarding the return of F1 to Africa, we also must remind you that last year the F1 boss confirmed there will be a race in Africa "in the next five years."
Stefano Domenicali has previously served as President of the Federation Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA), as CEO for Lamborghini, and as Team Principal for Ferrari F1.
