Dutch Grand Prix to return to Formula One calendar

Formula One is returning to Holland for the first time in 35 years.

It’s been confirmed that the Dutch Grand Prix will be on the racing 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.

The Zandvoort circuit, which last staged a grand prix in 1985, will replace the Spanish Grand Prix.

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 remains uncertain.

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

Silverstone chiefs, who were in Barcelona last weekend for the Spanish Grand Prix, are confident a contract extension will be agreed, but say there are a number of sticking points which could yet scupper the deal.
