    Is Zandvoort the one that's only got one road to and from? I feel like my might have a repeat of last year's French Grand Prix. Wonder where they'll put the grandstands. I'm happy Max and the Dutch are getting a Grand Prix again, but I don't think Liberty understood what people meant about historic European races.

    2 roads which mainly run through smaller towns, and a small train station, so nonetheless it will be very packed and pretty much the same scenario I think.
    The organization is very aware of this though and they are setting up all kinds of plans for public transport and bike services which is so typical Dutch but it's actually doable haha.

    I do think Liberty very much understood but they just picked a track that wasn't the peoples first choice (like a San Marino for example), I get it isn't up to modern standards and a bit narrow, but isn't that with some of the other tracks too?
    The main reasoning they went with this is obviously all the Dutch hype which is getting bigger every year, which is understandable.

    I'm not disagreeing with you completely though I do agree some other old tracks could have been brought back earlier, San Marino being one of them.
    I'd personaly be a big fan of seeing Kyalami return, it might be outside of Europe but it's an old track with some history behind it, and it'd be cool to have a race in that region as well.

    I will be in Zandvoort next year, for sure.
    San Marino has some problems with the track and resources, and it's narrow too (been there in '06)

    Cool I hope you'll enjoy it! It's a beautiful place.
    Do keep on eye out on accomodations etc, prices in the area are already skyrocketing, it's pretty insane, but I'm sure a lot of transportation options will come into play from other areas.

    Alonso didn't look great in qualifying for the Indy 500 today. He might not make it to the grid at all...

    Always feels weird "liking" an RIP post. However, I'm with you.
    Quite possibly the definitive sporting comeback story.

    Huge loss for all of motorsport.
    He was something else, honest and no PR bullshit, straight to the point.
    F1 needed someone like him.
