South Korea hopes to host F1 race

Not only do individuals make surprise returns to F1, but so do motorsport circuits and their former host countries.

F1 has enjoyed an influx of new destinations and circuits joining the sport, including Miami and Las Vegas due to growth in US fans.

It has also been reported that a fourth American circuit could find its way onto the F1 calendar in the guise of a Chicago GP. In addition to this, South Korea may also wish to return to F1.

The South Korean GP was held from 2010-2013 at the Korea International Circuit in Yeongam, however the Grand Prix was cancelled due to financial problems.
