Zandvoort turns orange: Thousands of fans cheer for Verstappen

It's a special weekend for Dutch motorsport. After 36 years of absence, the Dutch Grand Prix at Zandvoort is officially back on the Formula 1 calendar. The so called "Orange Army" is present in abundance this weekend.

There will be no lack of support for Max Verstappen this weekend. The stands will turn bright orange. At tracks like Austria, Hungary and Spa-Francorchamps we can see the big crowds of Dutch Verstappen fans for a couple of years now, but to see the sea of orange at Zandvoort is still special.

Lots of fans present

Around 70,000 race fans are present at the circuit each day, with the majority obviously coming for Verstappen. During the free practice sessions the cheering crowd could be heard clearly. There was a long queue at the entrance to the circuit, but the atmosphere was excellent and the weather was good too.
