Hamilton's father eyes F1 return for Africa

World champion Lewis Hamilton's father is involved in plans to revive a South African grand prix.

Since splitting as Lewis' manager, Anthony Hamilton has worked on other projects, including managing Paul di Resta and pioneering the so-called 'Info wing' that was tested by Force India at the end-of-season Abu Dhabi test.

Now, Press Association reports that Hamilton snr is working with Bernie Ecclestone on returning F1 to Africa, which has been without a grand prix since 1993.

The report said the proposal is for a race in Cape Town beginning in 2016.

"I've been looking to go back to South Africa for a long time," said F1 supremo Ecclestone, "and now we have a good chance."
