Formula 1 CEO Stefano Domenicali said the chance to have a 30-race calendar is not far off reality.

The Championship continues to expand as opportunities under Liberty Media continue to pop up, and Domenicali said the chance to add more races to the calendar is realistic.

“We need to be balanced, we need to see what the other opportunities are,” he told Sky Sports.

“Very soon, we are going to tell everyone what our strategy is to develop that market. On top of America, on top of China, I think there is the potential to also be in Africa soon.”

Domenicali admitted that there is plenty of interest for a race in the African continent.

“There is a lot of interest there. For sure, that’s another area that, so far, is missing in the geography of our calendar.

“I think there is potential to go to 24 [races].

“I would say there is potential to go to 30, in terms of the interest we see all around the world.

“It is up to us to try to find the right balance considering the venues which would like to be in F1, [and] the historical values we need to see on the calendar.”
