How to watch the 2021 F1 Dutch Grand Prix

The 2021 Dutch Grand Prix will take place between September 3 and September 5. Here's everything you need to know about the session times and where you can watch all the F1 action unfold.

After a controversial event in Belgium, the Formula 1 circus has travelled to the Netherlands for the return of the Dutch Grand Prix.

F1 has not raced at Zandvoort since 1985, when Niki Lauda took his final victory in F1. On that day, Lauda beat his great rival Alain Prost by just two-tenths of a second.

Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen will be eager to become the latest winner of the Dutch GP with just three points separating the championship protagonists in the title race.

A Dutch driver has never won at Zandvoort, so Verstappen would love to put that right in front of 70,000 fans on Sunday.

Valtteri Bottas and Sergio Perez could be in the mix at the front, too, whilst Ferrari and McLaren are set to resume their battle for third place in the Constructors' Championship this weekend.

RacingNews365.com will be on hand to cover all of the action and you can find our live blog to follow every second of the Dutch Grand Prix.

We will have exclusive interviews, news and analysis throughout the entire weekend in the Netherlands.
