he Dutch Grand Prix is upon us, with Max Verstappen looking to further extend his formidable championship advantage in front of an adoring home crowd.
The fiercely loyal Orange Army have packed out the Circuit Zandvoort once again for the latest homecoming of Formula One’s reigning world champion, who is fast turning his first title defence into a procession.
A ninth win in 14 races at the Belgian GP last weekend, where he quickly fought back from starting 14th on the grid to ease to yet another comfortable triumph, saw the dominant Verstappen move 93 points clear of Red Bull team-mate Sergio Perez in the drivers’ standings, with Ferrari’s luckless Charles Leclerc languishing third after a sixth-place finish at Spa.
The 24-year-old suffered a hiccup as he broke down in the first practice session on Friday and was only eighth-fastest after returning for FP2, with Leclerc leading Carlos Sainz in a Scuderia one-two.
Also on Friday, Oscar Piastri was officially confirmed as fellow Australian Daniel Ricciardo’s replacement at McLaren for 2023 after the team won their legal fight with Alpine.
