1985 Formula 1 Dutch Grand Prix

The 1985 Formula One Dutch Grand Prix held at Zaandvort on August 25, 1985.

This was F1’s last visit to Holland and Niki Lauda’s final GP victory. Piquet starts on pole but fails to get away and somehow the rest of the grid manage to avoid him. Lookout for some great out breaking manouvers going down into Tarzan corner. Tambay in the Renault and Alboreto in the Ferrari are particularly amusing.

Fantastic fightback from Prost to catch back up with Lauda his McLaren team mate and the last couple of laps see some frantic action.
