Confirmation that the Dutch Grand Prix will be on the 2020 calendar is set to come next Tuesday, GPToday.net has learned.

It has been rumoured for some time that Zandvoort will return to the F1 schedule next year, and in recent weeks, it seems that it will arrive in place of Barcelona, whose contract expires at the end of the season.

Insiders have notified GPToday.net that Liberty Media CEO Chase Carey will travel to The Netherlands from Spain to officially announce the deal.

The European country has been seeking a race for some time, with both Zandvoort and Assen in the running before the former became the sole option in March.

Zandvoort signs a 5-year contract

GPToday.net has also been informed that the Dutch circuit has an initial five year deal in place, which will run until the end of the 2025 F1 season.

The last time that Dutch Grand Prix was held was in 1985, when Niki Lauda won racing for McLaren. 

Over the race weekend in Barcelona, drivers seemed excited by the possibility of returning to Zandvoort, but were sceptical over the overtaking chances the track would offer during the race. 

However, they also admitted that it would be a shame to lose the Spanish Grand Prix, a track that many drivers like, and one they know very well due to the extensive testing they do there.
