Race organisers behind the 2020 Dutch Grand Prix effort have responded over recent rumours suggesting the deal had been made official and Formula 1 would return to the Netherlands in 2020.

Off the back of the monumental surge in popularity of the sport in the country with the arrival of Max Verstappen on the scene, venues in the country have been working hard at securing an F1 race.

Despite claims that a deal had been reached between FOM and Zandvoort, the race organisers deny these rumours but added that a deal was not dead in the water by any stretch of the imagination.

"This is still premature," said Jan Lammers, the chief representative for the event.

"We are on the right track, but we are still working on the finishing touches. It's very nice to hear these rumours. But I think they are still a bit ahead of the troops. It is not up to us to make this known.

"Formula 1 is not just about Zandvoort. They have 21 or 22 races. When everything is complete, we will probably come out with the news. But it is not there yet. We are optimistic."
