Zandvoort studying a return of the Dutch GP!

There's no question the emergence of Max Verstappen has rekindled the interest of Holland for Grand Prix racing.

The last time Formula 1 raced around the dunes of Zandvoort was in 1985, but the Dutch circuit has apparently ordered a feasibility study to review whether hosting an F1 race makes any financial sense, according to Dutch paper Haarlem Dagblad.

Any endeavor to get a Dutch GP back on the calendar would obviously require extensive work to upgrade the circuit and its infrastructure to modern day F1 standards, which in turn entails securing the proper funding.

Last year, local hero Max Verstappen did a few demo laps with Red Bull, much to the pleasure of a packed house.

Zandvoort 's current main events are the Masters of F3 race and a round of the German DTM series.
