Not many run off areas.
For the track to come back on the calendar next year will be amazing because you will see a lot of orange in the dunes so they will fill it up." 8.

VERSTAPPEN GETS OUT OF CAR TO GREET CROWD / CROWD CHEERING / VERSTAPPEN JUMPS OFF CAR AND ONTO TRACK STORY: Red Bull drivers Max Verstappen and Pierre Gasly took their cars for a spin in front of a large crowd at the Zandvoort track ahead of its return to the Formula One racing calendar next year.
The last time the track was in use for Formula One was in 1952 and the last time any Dutch track was on the racing calendar was 1985 - around a decade before Verstappen's father Jos debuted in the sport.
The younger Verstappen, 21 year-old Max, has had an explosive start to his career, smashing the record for youngest ever Grand Prix winner when he took the chequered flag in Spain three years ago.
Verstappen commands a large and loyal fanbase who regularly travelled to the Belgian race in Spa to watch their idol compete, and are expected to turn the circuit orange next year to cheer on their homegrown hero.
The race deal is the second, after Vietnam, negotiated by U.S.-based Liberty Media since taking over the sport in 2017 and ousting former commercial supremo Bernie Ecclestone.
