The Zandvoort Circuit will continue to stage the Dutch Grand Prix for a further two years after securing a contract extension with Formula 1.

The Dutch GP's original deal was due to expire in 2023, but the event will now run until at least the 2025 season.

After having dropped off the F1 calendar back in 1985, the Dutch GP made its return to the sport in 2021, helped in part by a huge upswing in Dutch interest in F1 due to the success of World Champion Max Verstappen.

The events from 2021 and 2022 were both by Verstappen, meaning he and Red Bull will be looking to maintain their 100% record in 2023.

Domenicali hails Dutch GP success

F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali noted the enormous popularity of the sport within the Netherlands, and praised the experience laid on by the Zandvoort event.

“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," said Domenicali.

"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."

The race promoter has confirmed that tickets for the 2023 Dutch Grand Prix, scheduled for 25-27 August, have already sold out.

In addition to Verstappen, Dutch fans will also have another driver to cheer on next year, with Nyck de Vries set to make his full-time F1 debut with AlphaTauri.
