Government not involved in Dutch Grand Prix bid yet

Dutch sports minister Bruno Bruins says that the government will "wait" before getting involved in a grand prix bid.

Dutch sports minister Bruno Bruins has said that the government will "wait" before getting involved in a grand prix bid.

Last week, a feasibility study concluded that there is "no reason" why Zandvoort should not host Formula 1 in the future.

However, Dutch News reports that Bruins told parliament that the study was merely an "initial exploration" and he will therefore not ask the Dutch sports ministry for advice.

Bruins said that the next step must be talks between Zandvoort, Liberty and the FIA.

"I will wait for that to happen," he added.

The 2017 season concludes this weekend in Abu Dhabi.
