Zandvoort keen on Dutch grand prix return
In the wake of huge interest in Formula 1 thanks to the meteoric emergence of Max Verstappen on the scene, the Netherlands could be back on the Formula 1 calendar by 2020.
The legendary Zandvoort circuit and the Dutch grand prix have been missing from the calendar since 1985.
But with Max Verstappen now stirring unprecedented interest, Zandvoort circuit chief Erik Weijers has been quoted by Noordhollands Dagblad newspaper as revealing The Hague might even be backing a F1 comeback bid.
“We cannot do it alone, as it is a global event that transcends the circuit,” Weijers said.
“There is a lot of potential but we must make a plan and negotiate with the formula one organisation,” he added. “I think 2020 would be a good year for it, 35 years after the last grand prix at Zandvoort.”
