...is it just me, or does this layout seem to be a great place for a drivers parade/procession race?
It is, actually! Not sure what can save it.
Main straight, with it's banked corners preceding it, is give or take the same overall length as the one in suzuka, so this gives me some hope.
edit. I just had a look at the video from a few posts above and if it's anywhere close to accurate, because second to last corner is already banked somewhat exit speed is much higher than I originally expected. This is actually a lot better for slipstreaming compared to what we have in suzuka where cars are coming from a very slow corner and the car ahead always gets 3-4 car lengths advantage simply from being on the power 0.4s earlier. This advantage will be much reduced in zandvoort. Good.
Track itself looks like it's gonna be lots of fun for drivers.
And we also get another "puohon" type corner, which will push cars to their limits:
