Itโ€™s difficult for anyone who isnโ€™t a nurse to appreciate the loss, grief, insomnia and isolation that come with caring for COVID-19 patients. It took a heavy toll on registered nurse Mpumi Ndabula, and the system simply failed to give her the mental health support she โ€“ and many of her colleagues โ€“ needed. Nurses soldier on, their sacrifice often unseen. But Carte Blanche meets this special human on the other side of burnout where her calling to care has been firmly reignited.

Ours is a country with a deep love of motorsports โ€“ from the first Grand Prix in East London in the 1930s to the iconic Kyalami Circuit in 1993. Icons like Andretti, Lauda, Mansell, Schumacher, and Jody Scheckter raced the Kyalami track with its 60 000 seats and unique atmosphere. Now, the race-obsessed country has been holding its breath as talks resumed to have Formula 1 return after 30 years. Sir Lewis Hamilton, F1โ€™s sweetheart and seven-time World Driversโ€™ Championship title holder, has repeatedly voiced his support to have the race return to our shores. Then there are the fans, like Hammanskraal sculptor Hendrik Chebanga, who has crafted intricate vehicles to celebrate his life-long passion for racing (and for Hamilton). If Formula 1 does return to the continent, it would call Kyalami home. So, what does it take to host this global event, and why did it not work out for 2023? And might there be good news for fans about 2024 with negotiations already underway in London? Carte Blanche explores the reasons it should make a local comeback.
