Organisers of next year's Dutch Grand Prix have requested that the race does not arrive in Zandvoort over the weekend of May 4/5 – amid claims that it could indeed be the spot that Formula 1 finds on the calendar for its return to the Netherlands.
With Zandvoort expected to replace Barcelona on the calendar, Spain's early-May slot is the logical place for the Dutch race to return after 35 years away.
However, that weekend sees both Remembrance Day and Liberation Day fall in the country next year.
The events mark commemoration of those who lost their lives in the Second World War and the Netherlands' liberation from German occupation respectively.
