This is not only because of his extraordinary level and his seven World Championships, but also his activities outside the car to increase inclusion in the sport influence. The Briton is continually looking for ways to improve the top flight, and one of his goals could be on the verge of being achieved.
The FIA would have reached an agreement to hold the South African Grand Prix for the next five seasons of Formula 1, a circuit that Lewis Hamilton ask for a long time. The desire of the Mercedes driver is to expand the World Championship to reach more diverse countries and thus decentralize racing from Europe.

The British driver saw the possibility of the South African Grand Prix returning after the constant changes in the calendar in recent months, where a Miami race was added this year and one more was confirmed for Las Vegas in 2023.
