Formule 1 : Le retour de Zandvoort en 2020

  • De retour pour trois ans Zandvoort

La saison prochaine, nous aurons donc un nouveau circuit urbain dans les rues de la capitale du Viêt Nam, à Hanoï, et nous allons revenir à Zandvoort, après une absence de 35 ans, sur une piste qui a contribué à la popularité du championnat partout dans le monde. On ajoutera que la proximité de la mer et du sable sont des éléments importants à gérer en course car ils sont très vite changeants notamment en raison d'un vent assez présent dans cette région.

Le tracé fait pour le moment un peu plus de 4 kilomètres, mais la piste et ses infrastructures seront revues afin de moderniser le circuit, qui a déjà subi un énorme lifting depuis la dernière édition du Grand Prix. Dont deux nouvelles: le Viêt Nam et les Pays-Bas.

Le dernier pilote à avoir remporté une course de F1 sur le circuit de Zandvoort a été Niki Lauda, alors pilote de McLaren et maintenant président non exécutif de l'équipe Mercedes. Ancien pilote de la catégorie reine du sport automobile, Jan Lammers a été nommé directeur sportif du GP.

A partir de la saison prochaine, en 2020, la station balnéaire de Zandvoort retrouvera donc le temps d'un week-end la folle atmosphère qui a longtemps fait de l'épreuve, qu'il conviendra désormais d'appeler Grand Prix des Pays-Bas Heineken, un rendez-vous incontournable du calendrier à une époque où Max Verstappen, chouchou des supporters néerlandais, n'existait même pas au stade de projet dans l'esprit de ses parents. Il avait alors 18 ans 7 mois et 15 jours.

Internet-famous Grumpy Cat has died
Her popularity was sealed by her participation at the South by Southwest Interactive (SXSW) festival in Austin , Texas. Importantly, the cat wasn't actually that angry; her scowl was the unique result of feline dwarfism and an underbite.

Un choix qui semble faire plaisir à beaucoup! .

" Dès le début de notre mandat en Formule 1, nous avons dit que nous souhaitions des courses dans de nouveaux lieux, mais aussi respecter les racines historiques de ce sport en Europe", a expliqué Chase Carey, patron de la F1, dans un communiqué. C'est un circuit avec une longue et impressionnante histoire de compétition et un défi de taille pour les pilotes.

A retrouver en 2020 au coeur de la saison européenne des Grand Prix de F1.
