New deal sees Dutch GP until at least 2025 on F1-calendar

After a new deal between F1 and Circuit Zandvoort was announced today, it has become apparent that Formula 1 will continue to race until at least 2025 on the Dutch track. What began in 2021, when the Dutch Grand Prix returned to the calendar for the first time since 1985, has now been prolonged by two more races to the original three-year contract.

The Dutch Grand Prix has quickly become one of the best-loved on the calender. Reigning world champion Max Verstappen won in 2021 and 2022 in front of a sold out home crowd. Together with Nyck de Vries there will now be two Dutch drivers on the grid.

Stefano Domenicali, President & CEO of Formula 1, said the following about the new deal: “The Dutch Grand Prix has quickly established itself on the calendar as a fan favourite, bringing incredible energy and a great fan experience every year. The sold-out events in the last two years have raised the bar in terms of organisation, entertainment, and sustainability, and we are delighted to extend our relationship with them. There is huge demand to host F1 races so it is testament to what the team have done to cement Zandvoort on the calendar until 2025, and we can’t wait to return next summer.”

Jan Lammers, Sporting Director of the Dutch Grand Prix, shared the following: “We are looking forward to the upcoming Grands Prix. With great races in which Dutch fans can now enjoy no less than two Dutch drivers. Of course, we will again offer an extensive and surprising entertainment program. With this we are again offering the ultimate race festival. We want the world to experience again how we as the Netherlands organize an event. It is unique that we are on the calendar with world cities like Las Vegas, Monaco, and São Paulo. And as we say internally, we are ‘Ready for Tomorrow’. We need and want to put on the F1 event of the future, which is not necessarily bigger but better, more engaging, more innovative, more sustainable, and more inclusive.”
