Meet Giedo van der Garde

Giedo van der Garde is a Dutch racing driver who, among other things, drove Formula 1 during his career. In 2013, van der Garde competed for the Caterham team and in 2014 as a test driver for Sauber. Outside Formula 1, he also drove races in Formula 3 and GP2. He is therefore recognized by the multiple wins he achieved. Nowadays he is one of the analysts at the streaming service Viaplay, which will broadcast Formula 2022 from 1. Next Monday, van der Garde will sit opposite Yves in the podcast series Uitblinkers to talk about his career and the new Formula 1 season, so you shouldn't miss this one.


Giedo: ''The traditional Japanese restaurant IZAKAYA is the best restaurant in Amsterdam. The food is top notch and it is always fun. Perfect for a fun night out.”

Vondelpark, Amsterdam

Giedo: ''I really enjoy visiting Vondelpark with the family. There is always a lot happening and the atmosphere is nice. I also think it is a wonderful place to run and stay fit and clear my head."

Do Not Disturb Club, Amsterdam

Giedo: ''It is a small club, but very pleasant. I know a lot of people there and that makes it fun. Good friends of mine manage the club and there is always a party there. It is different from other clubs, that makes it unique.”
