Sporting director of the event Jan Lammers confirmed that the Dutch Grand Prix will take place at the remodeled Zandvoort circuit in the first Dutch GP since 1985.
Originally set to host a Grand Prix weekend in 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic meant the event had to be postponed, with the Dutch government finally giving the green light for the event.
“For me the glass is two thirds full. We’re just going to do it. The three companies behind the Dutch Grand Prix, Circuit Zandvoort, SportVibes and TIG Sports, have decided to invest in the future of F1 in the Netherlands,” Lammers said.
“This year, admittedly in a smaller form, the battle for the World Championship will be fought in a beautiful orange ambiance in the stands.”
With local hero Max Verstappen trailing Lewis Hamilton by an 8-point margin, the atmosphere at Zandvoort is set to be mesmerizing with a two-third crowd capacity for the Grand Prix.
