Formula One F1 returns to Netherlands in 2020

FORMULA ONE is returning to the Netherlands for the first time in 35 years after it was announced that the Dutch Grand Prix will be on the calendar next season.

Max Verstappen’s rise as one of the sport’s biggest stars has encouraged F1 to strike a deal in the Dutchman’s homeland.

And, yesterday morning, it was confirmed that Zandvoort, which last staged a grand prix in 1985, becomes Liberty Media’s second new race under its regime.

The Dutch round is set to replace the Spanish Grand Prix, which is one of five races out of contract at the end of the year.

While a grand prix in Vietnam’s capital Hanoi will also be added to the schedule in 2020, the future of the British Grand Prix is uncertain.

The event at Silverstone in July is set to be the last unless a new agreement is reached.
