Given the continuous worldwide spread of the Corona virus (COVID-19), Formula One Management today confirmed that the Formula 1 Heineken Dutch Grand Prix will not take place in the weekend of 3 May 2020. The race has been postponed until further notice. The FIA and FOM indicate that they will take the time in the coming period to study possible alternative dates for each Grand Prix later in the year. We support both parties in this by monitoring the situation and sentiment in the Netherlands on a daily basis. All tickets remain valid for the new date. We will provide more information about the refund policy to the ticket holders as soon as possible.
After 35 years of absence, the royal class of motorsport is back in Zandvoort! On a racetrack that is considered by many drivers to be one of the most beautiful in the world, Formula 1 will be held in the first weekend of May 2020. An event you must be at!
The circuit is praised for the rolling track through the Zandvoort dunes. The Tarzan bend immediately after the start, the sharp Hugenholtz bend, the ‘blind’ Scheivlak and the fast Arie Luyendyk bend: bends that will demand the utmost from the drivers, that will make overtaking extremely difficult, but that guarantee a magnificent Formula 1 adventure.
No unknown territory
But the Zandvoort circuit is no unknown territory for a number of current Formula 1 drivers. Max Verstappen has been a regular guest at the Jumbo Racing Days for years with Red Bull Racing, but reigning world champion Lewis Hamilton also has good memories of Zandvoort. He won Formula 3 in 2005: "It was really cool to race there. But overtaking was difficult." Hamilton's teammate Valtteri Bottas is also happy to return: "It is a very beautiful circuit. The track has nice long curves and really fast curves. And even when we were there with the Formula 3, there were a lot of fans along the track. I would gladly there return."
