The Dutch Grand Prix returns to the Formula One calendar in 2021, with F1 racing around the track for the first time since 1985. The 14-corner layout has been modernised for F1’s return, including a steeper banking angle at the famous Tarzan corner, but remains a challenging, twisty layout.
Zandvoort has a long history of motorsport, having first opened in 1948. It debuted in F1 in 1952 and just three years later, Juan Manuel Fangio scored Mercedes’ one and only victory at the Dutch Grand Prix – leading home Stirling Moss to secure a Silver Arrows 1-2 in 1955.
F1 annually visited Zandvoort from 1958 to 1971, and again from 1973 to 1985 – with the legendary Niki Lauda winning the last Dutch Grand Prix for McLaren, before it dropped from the calendar. Now, after a 36-year hiatus, it’s back!
