Formula 1 has extended the contract with the Dutch GP until at least the 2025 season, announced on Thursday.

The Dutch GP was set to make its return to the F1 calendar in 2020, but the COVID-19 pandemic postponed that moment to the 2021 season. The contract was originally to expire in 2023, but it was revealed that the deal was extended for two more years.

“The Dutch Grand Prix has quickly established itself on the calendar as a fan favorite, bringing incredible energy and a great fan experience every year,” F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali commented on the announcement.

“The sold-out events in the last two years have raised the bar in terms of organization, entertainment, and sustainability, and we are delighted to extend our relationship with them. There is huge demand to host F1 races so it is testament to what the team have done to cement Zandvoort on the calendar until 2025, and we can’t wait to return next summer.”

“We are looking forward to the upcoming Grands Prix. With great races in which Dutch fans can now enjoy no less than two Dutch drivers. Of course, we will again offer an extensive and surprising entertainment program. With this we are again offering the ultimate race festival,” Dutch GP sporting director Jan Lammers said.

“We want the world to experience again how we as the Netherlands organize an event. It is unique that we are on the calendar with world cities like Las Vegas, Monaco, and Sao Paulo. And as we say internally, we are ‘Ready for Tomorrow’. We need and want to put on the F1 event of the future, which is not necessarily bigger but better, more engaging, more innovative, more sustainable, and more inclusive.”
