Fresh after reports a Netherlands Grand Prix would return to Formula 1 next year, Liberty Media has confirmed rumours they’ll be adding a second Dutch GP.
“WE WANT TO PLAY DOUBLE DUTCH” Chase Carey told us.
“This is part of our plan to expand not just into the Dutch market, but into Holland and The Netherlands too” Chase Carey confirmed.
“Also gives Max more of a chance to win”
“It’s all part of our plan to just keep announcing new stuff until people take notice” Carey told reporters.
Liberty Media confirmed the move was part of their new circuit negotiation protocols.
“For us, it’s so critical that we spend the time negotiating and investing in new races before we even bother to secure Monza, Silverstone etc”
“Because when you think iconic, legendary Formula 1 circuits – you think Zandvoort.” Carey told us
“Is that with two O’s or three??”
Carey wouldn’t rule out reports Liberty Media plan on ditching every grand prix circuit in favour of 24 races in The Netherlands.
“Why stop at 24??” Carey told us.
“It’s a growth market”
Local driver Max Verstappen was asked about the reports, and how he feels about potentially racing in front of a home crowd.
“No different” Verstappen said, “they rock up to every race I’m in”
But Verstappen was quick to point out his excitement at the prospect of finally racing at a home grand prix.
“I can’t wait to come third in front of my home fans”
