Thoughts?

Pretty short lap time. Was approx 1:22 here so in full blown quali mode I recon it'd be a Monza lap times, probably quicker. Track looks narrow (approx 9.5m wide crossing the start / finish line. About 8.5 - 9m wide on the run out to the top of the track but about 11.5 - 12m wide on the run back) & sweeping. Looks like overtaking could be at a real premium. Start finish straight looks to be about 700m long (measured on GE). That's roughly 100m shorter than Melbourne's. Yeah there's the long banked entry corner to the straight (similar to the corner section onto the long straight in China), but not sure that'll be a big help. I fear a procession here.

Also wondering what, if any, data RB were able to pull of Verstappen's laps of the track? Wasn't one of the big talking points around Zandvoort that being every team would roll up to the race not having any data surrounding the characteristics of the track?

Looks great. I honestly don't car if overtaking is difficult. It's just nice to have a track that actually has some flow to it and doesn't feel like painted lines on a car park. Love how it undulates from side to side on the straights.

Where would you install the DRS zones then?

Just after you've come off the banked turn into the main straight.

Indeed my thoughts as well, I did wonder if there might be some kind of leg up, however in this case I wonder if Verstappen was using last year's car?

It’s the RB8 I believe from 2012.

The car's even older than that - no Halo.

He was putting no effort in missing apexes and running nowhere near his top speed. They're not getting anything useful from this I suspect.

I wouldn't. Not implementing them could be the best test of the usefulness of the banked final corner ahead of a straight. Quite apart from thinking DRS kills racing in the first place.

Surely being able to breeze past on the straight isn't racing? It's a time trial.

Hopefully with 2021 regs we will no longer need DRS.

It has it's moments but unfortunately it can make passing too inevitable and there's nothing exciting about an inevitable pass.

Rather that then no overtaking at all, this seems more like not wanting any DRS passes, even with DRS there seemed to be quite a few tracks were passing simply wasn't possible.

I wouldn't be surprised if there is no overtaking at the front even with DRS.

I agree neither is what you want. I'd take very difficult passing over very easy passing though. Monaco last year was way more exciting having Verstappen hound Hamilton for lap after lap knowing he was going to have a go at some point than it would have been had he overtaken him easily and drove off into the distance.

We might have to suffer very little overtaking here in 2020 but it should hopefully be better in 2021.

Worth it I think to get a race track that isn't just full of the same long straight/big stop/long straight combination.

Looks great to drive, but I'm not expecting much in the way of racing. What I do really like though, and this may end up bringing the race to life, is that it looks very unforgiving to driver mistakes. Look at all those gravel traps!

Longer than that; you have to go back before aerodynamics for overtaking to have been common at the front.

The only time where we've had regular overtaking in the front 6 was with the cheese tyres 2011-13.

The cynic in me immediately wishes to add that at that time, sportsmanship was also still strong.

I like the clip, but that is one very short start/finish straight; I time it at under 7 seconds. The current massive downforce formula may have some influence, but I doubt it. I hope I'm wrong though; I've always liked Zandvoort and the banking certainly looks interesting.

DRS can be exciting only if the organizers place the DRS zones in a proper area and distance.

Valencia had a history of horrible races, until the very last one (2012) where they did get it right in location of the DRS zone. And that was one excellent race.

Looks beautiful to drive, but not so sure about the racing... looks like any passing would be tow/drs style rather than under braking.

I like and always liked Zandvoort... But I don't see any of today's oversized trucks overtaking on this track (and certainly not with just 2 wheels on the blacktop, as it seems to be allowed nowadays).
I never understood why the successive changes in regulations made cars wider and longer (but there's a lot of things that I don't understand about the way F1 is ruled).

Just a thought but could they put DRS before the banking?

Well if you go to about 1:00 into this vid mikeyg it sounds like that's whats going to happen.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S6Om5ixhcLU

But where will the activation point be? Between the Kumho & Luyendijk curves? That'll make things interesting dropping a fair bit of downforce out of 1 corner & moving directly into another corner. Bear in mind that it looks like Verstappen's pretty much just cruising around the track in these vids. Imagine the cars taking those 2 corners at racing speed then imaging losing a pile of downforce between them. Sounds a bit dicy to me but then again I could be wrong & it might be perfectly safe to do so.

Maybe they'll put the activation zone before the kumho curve.

A bit like Hungaroring in the sand hills.
Quali will be key.

Might be difficult to overtake (what tracks aren't these days?), but.... it is a fast flowing track that will punish errors.

Short pit lane may make for interesting strategy. VSC pit stops may even be a under a 10s loss.

We will be in luck if so. The Hungaroring has been one of the best tracks of the turbo era.

I'm attending the ring this year, my first GP.

Has anyone in here attended it before? (Sorry for the off topic)
