Let me say , I tried it once . And never ever again !
For 3 + hours I was stuck in a traffic jam on the highway , because an accident had happened a few miles in front of me .
The traffic jams are horrible. The last time I went to see te race we almost missed the start. There was a huge gridlock on the (only) motorway and my buddy and I decided to hit the emergency lane to skip the queue. We literally ditched the car just somewhere and ran to the stands. Just in time for the parade lap.
After the race it got worse. 100.000 visitors trying to get home (mostly Germans en Dutch visitors) via a 2 lane motorway. It took us 8 hours to get back to Amsterdam (a regular 3 hour drive).
I imagine these days, with the orange army supporting Max it will only be much worse.
