The Formula 1 2021 campaign continues its course on Sunday with the 13th Grand Prix Race of the year at the Circuit Zandvoort. The Dutch Grand Prix is a scheduled Formula One race at the Circuit Zandvoort in Zandvoort, the Netherlands on Sunday, September 5, 2021. The race will be the 13th round of the 2021 Formula One World Championship.
With Max Verstappen’s success in 2015, Formula 1’s popularity skyrocketed across the country. In 2019, an agreement was struck for the Netherlands to once again host a Formula 1 race starting in 2020. They had to wait a year longer for a home race when the worldwide pandemic postponed last year’s event.
Formula 1 is nothing new to Zandvoort, which initially hosted a race in 1952 and then hosted it 29 more times until it was dropped from the schedule following the 1985’s event. Jim Clark of the UK holds the record for most wins (4), while Ferrari with nine wins is the track constructors’ leader. As the Dutch Grand Prix is getting closer, let’s take a look at how to watch the race, the preview, information, predictions, and odds.
