Racing around the Zandvoort circuit, Pierre Gasly said it was “like sliding in a toboggan” while Esteban Ocon called it “pure” driving pleasure.
Formula 1 returned to the Netherlands on Friday, the Zandvoort circuit hosting the first Dutch Grand Prix in 36 years.
The old school circuit proved to be a challenge for the drivers but one they all relished as they took on the old school layout with its narrow track and gravel traps.
But what really caught the eye was the banked corners.
The Zandvoort circuit has two of those, Turn 3 and the final corner is also banked, the banking up to 19 degrees.
