After a 36-year wait, the Netherlands returns to Formula 1 Grand Prix racing on the Zandvoort Circuit with most of the turns redesigned compared with the version used up until 1985. According to Brembo engineers, it is one of those tracks with a medium level of difficulty for brakes.
On a scale of 1 to 5, it is rated 3 on the difficulty index, matching the score of other tracks such as Budapest and Spielberg. One of its distinctive features is turns 3 and 14 banked at around 19 degrees, more than double the corners at Indianapolis. This has a significant effect on the single-seater set-up which also affects the brakes.
