Dutch GP 2022 - Track Guide

Updated: Sep 4

Here's everything you need to know ahead of this year's Dutch Grand Prix, officially the Formula 1 Heineken Dutch Grand Prix 2022.

The Zandvoort circuit was built in 1948, when the Dutch Automobile Racing Club initiated the construction of the track, using a mix of public roads and some permanent parts. The first ever race held by the circuit took place in 1952, with Alberto Ascari winning the track's inaugural race, leading a Ferrari 1-2-3 finish. The circuit would be abandoned after 1985, with F1 returning to the Dutch dunes 36 years later, for the 2021 Dutch Grand Prix.

What Zandvoort gave us last year


Max Verstappen started on pole and took a comfortable win in front of his home crowd, fending easily from Lewis Hamilton, who started alongside him. Even though Hamilton was able to close up the gap between him and Verstappen, after the second stops, he never managed to overtake him for the lead, questioning his team's tyre choice. He eventually stopped for a third time, switching to a fresh set of softs, to go for the fastest lap, two laps before the end of the race.
