DUTCH GP AT ZANDVOORT FROM 5 SEPTEMBER 2021
The Dutch GP will return to the F1 calendar from 2021 season at Circuit Zandvoort after 36 long years of absence.
Actually, the North Holland seaside resort should have been overrun with racing fans this year, but that party was canceled due to the corona crisis.
With the rise of Red Bull Racing’s Max Verstappen in F1 – the only Dutch driver with a grand prix win to his name, the fan following in the Netherlands increased massively in the last few years.
The Dutchman started with events at local circuits too with the help of Red Bull.
So far, only Zandvoort has staged F1 grand prix races before, with the last happening in 1985 which was won by Niki Lauda. In all, there has been 30 Dutch GP so far with Ferrari having the most number of wins at nine and Jim Clark the most at four.
Several sources around the management of Formula 1 and the FIA motorsport federation have confirmed in Imola last weekend that Zandvoort will be on next year’s calendar a week after the race at Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium.
This year the race in Zandvoort would have been the first European race, at the beginning of May. Now it is convenient for policymakers that the Grand Prix will be held four months later in the year, given all the current uncertainties surrounding the corona crisis.
And finally, Jan Lammers, DGP Sporting Director added: “The Zandvoort Circuit is legendary and known worldwide and we’re delighted to see it host a round of the FIA Formula One World Championship once again.
