(SOUNDBITE) (English) DUTCH GRAND PRIX SPORTS DIRECTOR, JAN LAMMERS, SAYING: "They all take so much pride in what they are doing, of course, because they want to sit in front of the television or on the grandstands and then say at home, like, look, that's what I did there, you know, that curb stone there." 20.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) DUTCH GRAND PRIX SPORTS DIRECTOR, JAN LAMMERS, SAYING: "This is going to be a phenomenally quick corner and a quick part of the racetrack.

They are still working here on the gravel traps - that is also something that has been an idea from day one.

What we really want is an authentic track that, if you make a mistake, then you make a mistake, that's it.

We don't want a track where you can just cross the line, get a penalty for track limits, and then come back on the track.

So we don't want a forgiving racetrack: if you make a mistake here, you're out." 21.

The race at the seaside circuit would have been the country's first since 1985.

"I had to look forward to it for 35 years, so I can wait another year," Dutch Grand Prix sports director Jan Lammers said on the race website (www.dutchgp.com).
