From 2020, the Grand Prix of the Netherlands will be added to the Formula 1 calendar, which will be held at the Zandvoort circuit near Amsterdam

The organizers of Formula 1 officially confirmed that from 2020 one of the stages will be held in the Netherlands. The competition will return to the country after a 34-year hiatus, according to the official website of the competition.

A race for at least three years will be held at the Zandvoort circuit, which is located near Amsterdam. This route took stages in Formula 1 from 1952 to 1985.

The first winner of the Grand Prix of the Netherlands was the Italian Ferrari pilot Alberto Ascari, and the last was the Austrian Niki Lauda, ​​who spoke at the time for McLaren. The record holder is British Lotus pilot Jim Clark, who climbed to the top of the podium four times.

Recall that from 2020 one of the stages of Formula 1 will be held in Vietnam on the city road in Hanoi. Vietnam will become the fourth Asian country to host Formula 1, joining China, Japan and Singapore. The track with a length of 5.565 km, containing 22 turns, will be performed in the style of several famous race tracks of the world.

Thus, the first and second turns will resemble the initial sections of the “Northern loop” of the “Nurburgring”. In addition, some sections will be designed to remind of the slopes in Monaco, the French “Paul Ricard” and the Japanese “Suzuka”. Finally, the distance will include three long straight lines, the length of one of which will be about one and a half kilometers, where cars can accelerate to 335 km per hour.
