Dutch Grand Prix 2021 Preview
Formula 1 returns to Zandvoort at the Dutch Grand Prix 2021! In the west of the Netherlands, “Oranje” fans will give their best to cheer compatriot Max Verstappen to victory. On Sunday from 2 p.m., after a 36-year wait, the first Formula 1 race in 36 years will be held in Zandvoort. At the last race in 1985, Niki Lauda won.
In this article you will find everything you need to know about the broadcasting coverage of the GP of Zandvoort this weekend!
The current standings in the Formula 1 World Championship
Before this weekend’s GP, the Brit Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes leads the drivers’ standings by 3 points over Max Verstappen of Red Bull. That means Verstappen has a chance to reclaim first place in the championship with a win at his home track. Neither driver has F1 experience at Zandvoort. We therefore expect an exciting race with the outcome uncertain.
Nevertheless, Red Bull and Max Verstappen are considered slight favourites. On the one hand, because of their results on similar tracks like the tight and lightning-fast Zandvoort. Secondly, because of the expected support from the Dutch – the only question is whether the pressure will help or hinder young Verstappen.
