George ‘really excited’ ahead of Dutch Grand Prix
Formula One returns to Zandvoort for the Dutch Grand Prix for the first time in 36-years.
The 4.35km Dutch circuit is comprised of 14 corners with two DRS zones. With an undulating, rollercoaster feel to it, the track has been described by drivers as ‘insane’ and ‘old school’.
The track underwent modernisation ahead of the proposed 2020 DutchGP by increasing banking at the Tarzan corner to 18 degrees but that hasn't take away from the challenging nature of the circuit.
George Russell – Williams Racing Driver
I’m really excited for Zandvoort. I’ve raced there a few times before and it’s a fantastic circuit. It’s really undulating, fast and flowing and requires a huge amount of commitment. To experience that in a Formula One car will be very special. Obviously off the back of last weekend in Spa, everyone just wants to get racing again and put on a show for all of the supporters at the circuit and for those watching around the world on TV.
FP1 for the Dutch Grand Prix will take place from 10:30am BST on Friday September 3.
