F1 LIVE: Max Verstappen setback, Ecclestone shakes up Hamilton saga, McLaren legal battle | F1 | Sport
Max Verstappen is facing an unexpected obstacle ahead of his home race at Zandvoort later this month.
Taxi drivers are threatening to shut down the roads to the circuit which would prevent fans, including his famous Orange Army, from accessing the venue following a regulation change from local authorities.
Given the municipality has a population of just over 17,000 people, it is important that local businesses can maximise their income throughout the weekend.
However, following a change in the organisation of the event, taxi companies from outside the immediate vicinity will be unable to operate near the circuit on the race weekend.
As reported by Dutch news outlet Noordhollands Dagblad, this has caused outrage amongst local taxi drivers who usually capitalise on the footfall in the region throughout the Dutch GP weekend to boost their earnings.
