The Dutch GP is arguably one of the most environmentally friendly events in terms of mass crowd movement. Only two percent of the visitors came by car. The NS says it has transported almost 90.000 race fans to Zandvoort and back home this weekend. That happened with 522 trains, according to the transport company, which says it can look back on a successful Formula 1 weekend.

For three days, a train ran every five minutes between Amsterdam Central and Zandvoort aan Zee. The logistics job went well in collaboration with ProRail, says NS. In addition, almost all coach companies were present, who also brought fans to Zandvoort en masse from all over the country. Unique was the crowd that came to the circuit by bicycle. With only one access road to the seaside resort and one station near the circuit, the logistics ahead of the Dutch Grand Prix seemed like a major problem that we didn't notice last weekend.

Máxima Zorreguieta together with two of her daughters and King Willem-Alexander were visibly present at Zandvoort, which had few or no significant problems last weekend. Beautiful weather and Max Verstappen's victory provided fans with a fantastic weekend in the seaside resort that has been put on the map worldwide. King Willem-Alexander witnessed the victory of Max Verstappen at Zandvoort on Sunday. After the Grand Prix of the Netherlands, Rob van Gameren (from Ziggo Sport) spoke to the king about the race. He had compliments for Max Verstappen, Lewis Hamilton and the Dutch public.

There was great cheering that went up from the race track in Zandvoort when it became clear that Max Verstappen had won. The cheers could be heard from nearby. Traffic wardens in the immediate vicinity were ignited by this and also started cheering and jumping. It was not only a day to remember at the Zandvoort circuit for Max Verstappen, Davina Michelle was also happy that she could interpret the Wilhelmus twice during the Dutch GP. The singer sang the national anthem before the race and when Verstappen managed to finish first. The performance of the 25-year-old from Rotterdam could count on a lot of positive criticism, because she sang the Wilhelmus in her own way. 

The mayor of Zandvoort, David Moolenburgh, is incredibly happy with the course of the Dutch GP. The dream weekend was also not wrong for the local catering industry and the local beach tents were hired en masse for private events. The outflow went well on Sunday late afternoon and early evening, the mayor said. “The mobility plan has worked the way we wanted it to.”
