Back in the Formula 1 world championship calendar for the first time since 1985, the Grand Prix of Holland has for months been at the center of a bitter duel, even legal, with environmental groups that would like to stop the changes to the circuit and force the cancellation of the event. Despite the controversy however, the organizers are confident that they can regularly host the race, scheduled for May 3, 2020. The former pilot Jan Lammers, currently the circuit's spokesman, has recently been said "proud" of the work done by the managers of the Zandvoort track to overcome all the bureaucratic and legal obstacles that have arisen in recent months.
Dutch GP: "Everything goes according to plan"
Interviewed by the Dutch website racingnews365 Lammers reiterated: "The director and his team worked very hard. I am proud that the judge has agreed that Zandvoort has carried out his work carefully ". The Dutch then criticized the behavior of the environmental groups, in his opinion not interested in finding a solution that would satisfy everyone and that would allow to really improve the situation: "Opponents against whom we are dealing make an opposition in principle – attacked Lammers – whether something is real or not, they don't care. I am simply opposed to anything you say. If they come up with real ideas, we listen to them with full attention and try to get something out of them ".
Finally, the spokesman of the runway located near Amsterdam reiterated the commitment to the environment adopted by the organizers of the Grand Prix: "We are actually on the same side as the environmental organizations we have been facing in court. The Dutch GP will become the most sustainable race on the calendar of Formula 1 ″ Lammers ruled.
