Dutch rookie de Vries wins legal action

Nyck de Vries says he is relieved to put a legal dispute behind him ahead of his full Formula 1 race debut in 2023. In January, it emerged that the Alpha Tauri rookie was being sued by his former Formula 2 backer Joroen Schothorst, who alleges a EUR 250,000 loan deal involved de Vries paying him half of his F1 contracts. According to De Telegraaf newspaper, the judge ruled against Schothorst’s allegations, including the claim that fellow Dutchman de Vries needed to disclose the details of all his contracts. In the summary proceedings, the judge added that de Vries had fulfilled his payment obligations to the real estate businessman – and that Schothorst and his investment company would have to pay all legal costs.
