Bosses at the Zandvoort circuit have assured that there will be no repeat of the disastrous 2005 US GP when the Dutch GP returns to F1 next year.
The Zandvoort Circuit, which will host the Dutch GP from 2020, is working towards meeting the FIA Grade 1 safety standards.
It has been confirmed that Zandvoort, home of the Dutch GP from 2020, will have two banked corners, and that creates a challenge for Pirelli.
As part of the plans to bring Zandvoort circuit up to scratch for the Dutch GP next year, the banking at its final corner will be made twice as steep as Indianapolis.
It has been confirmed that the Zandvoort Circuit will retain its gravel traps for the return of the Dutch GP in 2020.
George Russell says the Dutch Grand Prix’s return next season will be great for the home crowd and Max Verstappen, but not for racing.
Formula 1 will return to Zandvoort next season, bringing to an end the Dutch circuit’s 35-year absence from the calendar.
Formula 1 managing director Ross Brawn says the return of the Dutch GP represents the sport’s philosophy to mix tradition with new events.
Confirmation is expected on Tuesday of the return of the Formula 1 Dutch Grand Prix in 2020.
