The orange smoke has been a staple of the orange army and The Dutch Grand Prix for quite a while now, but it seems flares at the circuit will be no more. Well… in theory!
Fans at the circuit at Zandvoort have been told that they will be ejected from the circuit if they light flares or fireworks at the circuit.
Signs around the track read, ‘It is prohibited to set off fireworks and other incendiary materials. If you do use flares, you will be removed from the premises.’
Cheers and flares greet Verstappen's arrival on track 🙌

There had been calls to ban flares after orange smoke erupted around the track at this year’s Belgian Grand Prix.
However, that hasn’t stopped some fans from letting them off during qualifying today!
Do you think it is right to ban flares?
