The Dutch Grand Prix will make a long anticipated return to the F1 Calendar in 2020 after a 35 year absence. The 2.676 mile circuit features 15 corners, some of which will need reprofiling for the modern generation Formula Cars.
The circuit last hosted the F1 Dutch Grand Prix in 1985 where the winner of the Grand Prix was Niki Lauda which was his last F1 win to date before a second and permanent retirement from the sport.
Zandvoort’s 2.7 Mile GP Circuit layout has been used since 1999 and has held mutiple motorsport events which include: DTM, European Formula Three and many more.
Max Verstappen backed organisers to host another Dutch GP after the Circuit De Catalunya contract runs out in 2020. This is likely to be the one of the first F1 races to be held in May next year.
Some drivers have complained about the lack of overtaking opportunties around the circuit but its a great track and one that F1 Fans really want back on the Calendar.
