Verstappen drops out of Zandvoort

Jos Verstappen has dropped out of the opening round of the A1 Grand Prix Series at Zandvoort - a major blow for the race organisers, who had used the former F1 driver to draw in huge crowds of Dutch fans. There is believed to be a dispute over money involving Verstappen, A1 Team Netherlands' seat holder Jan Lammers and A1 Grand Prix itself.

A1 Grand Prix is trying to head off disappointment bu offering full refunds for fans who purchased a ticket for the sole purpose of supporting Jos Verstappen.
