Max Verstappen and Pierre Gasly discuss the return of racing to Zandvoort

The Dutch Grand Prix returns to Formula One calendar with new Zandvoort race.

The Dutch Grand Prix is returning to the Formula One calendar for the first time since 1985.

The race at Zandvoort in 2020 will give Max Verstappen the chance to competitively race in an Aston Martin Red Bull Racing F1 car in front of his home fans for the first time.
Here is all you need to know:

- The race was first held in 1952, and carried on for 13 years in a row between 1973 and 1985 before being dropped in 1986.

- Aston Martin Red Bull Racing have visited the track frequently in the past few years for the Jumbo Racedagen event, showcasing everything from extreme caravan racing to synchronised donuts down the start finish straight.

- In 2017 Verstappen set the unofficial lap record driving a RB8 of 1:19.511, beating the former time by almost three seconds.

- Verstappen said: “It’s just an iconic, historic track. I have raced there before with F3 and it was a lot of fun. I compare the track a little bit with Suzuka because it’s designed by the same person so I can understand that the characteristics are a bit similar. It’s a pretty quick track and it’s always good and exciting to have new ones on the calendar. I’ve done a few laps and donuts in an F1 car there too and the track was actually pretty challenging because you have a few banked corners, some places are very narrow and there’s no run off. It’s very cool, and with no run off, it’s quite hard to find the limit. On some other tracks it’s a bit easier but that also makes it more exciting.”

- Gasly added: “It’s cool to have a new track in the calendar. I’ve been to Zandvoort before in Formula Renault and it’s a really cool and challenging track with the banking. Just the fact that it’s super narrow makes it quite exciting so I like it. I haven’t been there often but I’m excited to go back and Turn 6, the really fast right hander, must be pretty amazing in an F1 car with the downforce. I think, like everything in life, when you have something new you’re always excited to discover what it’s like. Zandvoort is an iconic track so let’s see how it goes. It will be a busy season but I’m happy.”

- Aston Martin Red Bull Racing will be back in Zandvoort this weekend with Verstappen and Gasly in the RB7s to provide a full measure of donuts, burnouts and speed runs before heading to the Monaco Grand Prix.
