Liberty not denying Zandvoort F1 deal

Published

on

A source at Liberty Media is not denying that Chase Carey is set to announce that a Dutch GP will take place at Zandvoort from 2020.

The media has been called to the circuit’s Paddock Club on Tuesday morning.

“We’ll see,” the source told us when asked if the press conference is to unveil the three-year race deal, which includes ‘option’ years for 2023 and 2024 too.

Max Verstappen will not be there, but he told De Telegraaf newspaper: “It’s great, especially for the fans in the Netherlands.

“The atmosphere will be fantastic. I hope that everything is done professionally.”

The only issue, Verstappen warned, is that overtaking will be difficult.

“Maybe the changes they are making will make it a bit easier,” said the Red Bull driver.

Indeed, the Hugenholtz and Arie Luyendijk corners are being tweaked.

“A grand prix of the Netherlands will be huge,” predicted Red Bull boss Christian Horner.

“It will be like Spain at the height of the Alonso years — we’re already seeing the number of Dutch fans growing year after year.

“I think with Max’s popularity, it will be immense, and very positive for Formula 1,” he added.
