It has been confirmed that the Dutch Grand Prix will be fixing on the 2020 year calendar. The race track will be making a comeback on the charts after a span of 35 years, with the race slated to take place at the Circuit Zandvoort. This means the 2020 F1 calendar will see two new races, with the Vietnam Grand Prix slated to be held on the streets of Hanoi next year.
Chase Carey, Chairman and CEO, Formula 1, said, “We are particularly pleased to announce that Formula 1 is returning to race in The Netherlands, at the Zandvoort track. From the beginning of our tenure in Formula 1, we said we wanted to race in new venues, while also respecting the sport’s historic roots in Europe. Next season, therefore, we will have a brand-new street race that will be held in the Vietnamese capital of Hanoi, as well as the return to Zandvoort, after an absence of 35 years, a track that has contributed to the popularity of the sport all over the world. In recent years, we’ve seen a resurgence of interest in Formula 1 in Holland, mainly due to the enthusiastic support for the talented Max Verstappen, as seen from the sea of orange at so many races. No doubt this will be the dominant colour in the Zandvoort grandstands next year.”
