Circuit Zandvoort

The circuit is praised for the rolling track through the Zandvoort dunes. The Tarzan bend immediately after the start, the sharp Hugenholtz bend, the ‘blind’ Scheivlak and the fast Arie Luyendyk bend: bends that will demand the utmost from the drivers, that will make overtaking extremely difficult, but that guarantee a magnificent Formula 1 adventure.

No unknown territory

But the Zandvoort circuit is no unknown territory for a number of current Formula 1 drivers. Max Verstappen has been a regular guest at the Jumbo Racing Days for years with Red Bull Racing, but reigning world champion Lewis Hamilton also has good memories of Zandvoort. He won Formula 3 in 2005: “It was really cool to race there. But overtaking was difficult.” Hamilton’s teammate Valtteri Bottas is also happy to return: “It is a very beautiful circuit. The track has nice long curves and really fast curves. And even when we were there with the Formula 3, there were a lot of fans along the track. I would gladly there return. ”
