Bernie Ecclestone said he hopes Africa will join the formula one calendar in about three years’ time. On the day of the World Cup final, the F1 chief executive said plans are afoot for the construction of a new grand prix circuit in Cape Town.

During an interview at Silverstone with BBC Radio 5's Sportsweek, the 79-year-old said the success of the World Cup had convinced him that F1 should also be in Africa. "It would be nice to have covered the world, but Russia is more important right now," the Briton explained. "Africa is limited for all the people who are involved in F1 for business, whereas Russia is wide open”, he added.

"But we will see. We have been talking to the people in South Africa for quite a long time off and on. The chances are ok. It's a case of getting the right venue always," said Ecclestone.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
