After a summer break, Formula 1 fans can look forward to a race again. Especially the duel Max Verstappen versus Lewis Hamilton stays in the mind of the viewer. But the next race should also deliver spectacular duels. One will especially keep an eye on Verstappen and his opponent Charles Leclerc at the Dutch Grand Prix.
Leclerc however, had a few problems in the past: technical problems and driving and strategy mistakes repeatedly threw the racing driver off track. From September 4th, the Monegasque has more than one chance at a world title. He just can’t afford to make any more mistakes. After the Dutch Grand Prix in Zandvoort, just a week later, on September 11th, the Italian Grand Prix will take place in Monza.
Circuit in Zandvoort became notorious for tragic accidents
Racing cars have been driving in the Circuit Park in Zandvoort for a long time. The racetrack has been part of Formula 1 since 1958. One of the winners of the racetrack was racing legend Niki Lauda, who won three titles there.
But Zandvoort has also become famous through fateful events. A number of drivers have lost their lives on the route in the past. So did Roger Williamson, who died in a fire in 1973. His tragic death changed safety standards. Wearing fireproof suits became mandatory.
