Verstappen’s father en route to Zandvoort

Max Verstappen’s father is en route to Zandvoort to watch his son race away from pole position at their home Dutch GP. F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali is delighted with the success and popularity of the sport’s new-in-2021 race at the classic Zandvoort circuit – and credits Verstappen for much of it. “If you look at popularity, he is now approaching the Schumacher days,” Domenicali told De Telegraaf. Nevertheless, the current Dutch GP contract expires after 2023, and many observers say that despite the event’s popularity, Domenicali’s desire to extend the deal will be purely financial. “It’s easy to talk like that when you don’t have any responsibility,” Domenicali said.
