Dutch Grand Prix: Zandvoort to stage first Formula 1 race since 1985

The Dutch Grand Prix will return to the Formula 1 calendar in 2020 for the first time since 1985.

The race will be held on the weekend of 8-10 May at the historic Zandvoort circuit and effectively takes the place of the Spanish Grand Prix.

F1 bosses are hoping to benefit from the surge in interest in Red Bull’s Dutch driver Max Verstappen.

“A Dutch Grand Prix, with Max’s popularity, will be immense,” said Red Bull team boss Christian Horner.
