The 1985 Dutch Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held at Circuit Zandvoort on August 25, 1985. It was the eleventh round of the 1985 Formula One season. The race was held over 70 laps of the four kilometre circuit for a race distance of 298 kilometres. The race also proved to be the 34th and last Dutch Grand Prix and the 25th and last Grand Prix victory for triple (and defending) World Champion Niki Lauda. Lauda's team mate Alain Prost was second in his McLaren MP4/2B with Brazilian racer Ayrton Senna third in his Lotus 97T.
Sadly it was also rising German star Stefan Bellof's last Grand Prix as he was killed at the Spa-Francorchamps circuit in the 1000 km of Spa World Sportscar race just a week later driving a Porsche 956.
