F1 Commercial director confirms: I am traveling to the Netherlands next week

Sean Bratches, the commercial director of Formula 1, will travel to the Netherlands next week. In all likelihood, he is visiting to discuss a contract signing with the circuit of Zandvoort. It's expected that the Dutch Grand Prix be officially confirmed by FOM in the coming week.

Bratches was asked by Algemeen Dagblad whether he is on his way to the Netherlands soon. The American confirmed his speedy arrival, but did not give the exact reason away: “what am I coming to do? Just have a drink," he said.

He expected to travel to Zandvoort on Tuesday to announce the collaboration. Rumours suggest it will be a three-year deal with the first race to take place in May 2020.
