Zandvoort is by no means new to the world of Formula 1, having raced for the first time in 1952 and done so 29 more times before the Dutch Grand Prix was removed from the calendar after the 1985 edition.
However, today’s circuit is very different from what riders have ridden in the past, with several changes before they return.
The main thing is to enter the oblique corners. This bank, which is 19 degrees twice as high as that of Indianapolis, can be found at Hugenholtzbocht and Arie Luyendijkbocht, the latter being the last on the lap.
In total, the 4252 km of track It has 13 courses, lots of elevation changes, lots of high-speed sections, and any mistakes are likely to be costly.

Dutch Grand Prix Instructions
Zandvoort is a spa town located on the northwest coast of the Netherlands.
The nearest city, train station and airport is Amsterdam, and it’s very easy to ride the runway in the Dutch capital. Therefore, going first is probably your best option if you are traveling from another country by plane or train.
With only 15 miles running at both locations, it takes just 40 minutes to drive from town to circuit, although the high traffic volume can make the trip a bit longer on the weekends.
Even without a car, getting to Zandvoort is not a problem. The train from central Amsterdam to Zandvoort aan Zee takes about half an hour, while bus number 80 takes just over 50 minutes if the traffic isn’t bad.

Tire options at the 2021 Dutch Grand Prix
Given the high-speed sections and hard cornering, it’s no surprise that Pirelli would bring a more demanding set of tires to the Dutch Grand Prix.
C1 compound will be the hard tire, C2 will be the medium and soft compound will be C3 rubber.
Given the climate in the spa, which is not far from the circuit, don’t be surprised to use the medium or humid weather either.
