Zandvoort announced as a circuit for next year which means the return of the Dutch Grand Prix amongst the dunes.

Hopefully the camber on Tarzan isn't bulldozed!
May have to stay in Amsterdam and go to this! The drugs will make the f1 seem more interesting at least!

70 is no age really but I guess after his injuries he has done well. Total legend

Yeah definitely. Incredible how quickly he was back racing after the injuries he suffered.

Niki Laudas chief mechanic from March used to drink in a pub I worked at and told loads of stories about him.

Often the mechanics would walk into the garage on the morning of a race and Lauda would be found covered in oli and grease after stripping apart the engine as he was fixing the car himself.

He knew his way around a race car.

A lot of stories like this about - I was just reading about how when one of his airline’s planes crashed, he proved to Boeing that it was their fault and then forced them to admit it publicly. Really knew his stuff.

So the Brazilian GP will move to Rio from next year and the BBC have a computer simulation of the track.

It looks utter s**** in comparison to Interlagos.
