Well, Zandvoort started out as a street circuit, perhaps that could be re-instated?
Seriously, if there were a GP in the Netherlands, one of the 4-5 major cities could host it: Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague, Utrecht or Eindhoven.
Some historical background for the non-Dutch readers.
Amsterdam: 17th century centre, very small streets, almost always leftist/Green city-council. Cramped with tourists, Uber is called 'The New Smoking' by several, tons of 'dagjesmensen', a city center that is still reeling from the construction of the new subway (Noord-Zuidlijn), which made buildings sag, give house-owners heart-attacks and gave the city a traffic-aneurysm. The mood in the city now: let us get back to Amsterdam as it was. So left, green and yearning for the romantic old city.
Very, very unlikely therefore.
Rotterdam: heavily bombed in the second world war, gave city-planners much more room to play with. Broad streets (for Dutch eyes), slightly right-wing city council, not cramped, has experience with the Bavaria Race Experience (inconceivable event for Amsterdam). The mood in the city: we want to be a global city.
Unlikely in the general sense, but 100 percent more likely than Amsterdam.
The Hague: One question. Why?
Utrecht. Still reeling from the Hoog Catherijne-trauma (big shopping-mall annex train-station) in the centre. Serious lack of money. Beating hart of the train-infrastructure in the Netherlands and in that aspect as vulnerable as mr. Glass in Unbreakable. The city-council members who would vote for a Grand Prix, will dangle from a street-lantern five minutes later.
Eindhoven. Also bombed heavily in WW2 and therefore an un-Dutch infrastructure. That I can see. If someone else than Eindhoven would pay the money. And if F1 would want to go to Eindhoven. Which I doubt...
My advice: let the F1-bosses first offer a Grand Prix to Amsterdam. Which Amsterdam will refuse. And then Rotterdam will accept the challenge... just to spite 020, as they call their nemesis Amsterdam!
