Zandvoort, Spa, face uncertain F1 futures

As Formula 1 stands firmly with Saudi Arabia following Friday’s nearby missile attacks, two of the sport’s most popular venues face a less certain future. “There are races that have a current contract and others that are coming to the end of their contract,” he said. Van Overdijk admitted that Zandvoort’s popularity alone will not be enough for the Dutch GP to secure its own future. “We are a private event without government support and so we must first have sponsors and partners before we can enter into a long-term deal,” he said. Another popular and even more historic F1 venue, Spa-Francorchamps, is also hanging onto its place on the race calendar despite a circuit overhaul over the winter.
