After months of rumours, Formula 1 have confirmed a deal to host a grand prix in Madrid for at least ten seasons, starting in 2026.
It's not entirely clear whether the Madrid race will replace the Spanish Grand Prix in Catalunya, leaving the door open for another country to have multiple races.
With Italy also having two grands prix, and the United States also running three - fans have been left up in arms that while the calendar has more races than ever (24 for 2024) there is still no return to Formula 1 racing to Africa.
This last world championship race on the continent was back in 1993 with the South African Grand Prix, and while there have at least been rumblings of a return to Kyalami, no serious proposals have taken shape since.
F1 fans though have voiced their concerns though over the world championship still not racing on the African continent.
One fan complained: "These man will give us everything except a Grand Prix in Africa smh."
Another added: "F1 would rather have two/three races in one country rather than hosting a race in Africa, South Africa to be exact."
One supporter suggested that one race in the entire continent was all that was required, saying: "We just want a race in Africa - is that too much to ask for?" and another added: What about South Africa??? We will never have an African grand prix??
Other fans relayed how traditional European venues are also missing out: ""How about bringing back Germany and South Africa ??"
