After 35 years the Dutch Grand Prix returned to the racecalender. The FIA, the teams and the Dutch Motorsport Federation KNAF worked on the circuitdesign to ensure suitability for F1 cars and to encourage overtaking,
Zandervoort is a beach resort located near Amsterdam and is known for its magnificent dunes which seperate the track from the North Sea.
The original track, as well as Suzuka, was designed by Hans Hugenholtz and is very different from mordern circuits. With quite some elevation change, high speed corners and technical sectors the track doesn't provide much room for error.
