From next season, the Grand Prix of Belgium and the Grand Prix of the Netherlands will alternate and take place every two years.
Citing its sources, the Belgian publication Le Soir reports that the organizers of the stages are negotiating new contracts with Liberty Media and are close to closing agreements. It is assumed that the Grand Prix of Belgium will be held in 2024, the Grand Prix of the Netherlands in 2025 and the stages will continue to alternate in the future.
The arrangement will allow the Spa circuit to continue hosting Formula 1 races and help the organizers of the Zandvoort race save on costs, which are quite high, despite increased interest from local fans in the race due to Max Verstappen’s success.
However, another Belgian source, the RTBF news agency, has different information. Negotiations between Spa and Formula 1 boss Stefano Domenicali are at an advanced stage, they said, but “there is currently no reason to believe that the race in Belgium will be alternated with another Grand Prix.”
Zandvoort has not yet responded to the rumors. We will continue to monitor the development of the situation.
