South Korea has a history with Formula 1, having hosted races from 2010 to 2013 at the Korea International Circuit. However, the Grand Prix was abandoned in 2015 due to financial reasons and contractual issues.

Now, there’s renewed interest in reinstating the South Korean Grand Prix. Incheon, known for its vibrant culture and modern infrastructure, is touted as the best place to host Formula 1 in the country. Mayor Yoo Jeong-bok expressed this sentiment, emphasizing the city’s suitability for the event.
