The 2024 Dutch Grand Prix takes place over 44 laps of the 7.004-kilometre Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps on Sunday, July 28.

Fast and challenging, Circuit Zandvoort is an 'old school' track that was originally a mixture of racing track and public roads that snaked through the sand dunes of the Dutch holiday resort of Zandvoort.

Many Formula 1 drivers, including three-time World Champion Max Verstappen, raced at Zandvoort. during their junior category days, and are familiar with the track's swooping corners and insane bumps.

The circuit was modernised ahead of F1’s 2020 return, including cranking up the banking angle at the Tarzan corner to a shocking 18 degrees – steeper banking than the Indianapolis Motor Speedway!

The Dutch Grand Prix starts at 3 p.m. local time. Rain is often forecast, so tricky wet conditions are not out of the question.
