Live Coverage: The unfolding drama at the Dutch Grand Prix

by admin

Max Verstappen is slated to kick off from the coveted pole position, aiming to tie Sebastian Vettel’s awe-inspiring streak of nine back-to-back grand prix wins.

The racing sensation from the Netherlands is sure to be buoyed by the rambunctious cheers of the hometown crowd in Zandvoort, though he’s not without challenges. Hot on his heels will be Lando Norris, who’s secured the second-place starting position.

In another thrilling development, George Russell has locked in the third spot on the grid and will share the second row with Williams’ own Alex Albon. Meanwhile, the circuit will serve as a baptism by fire for Liam Lawson, who’s stepping into the big leagues as he fills in for an injured Daniel Ricciardo at AlphaTauri.

Kevin Magnussen, in a plot twist no one asked for but will make the race all the more riveting, will be launching his race from the pit lane. This unconventional start comes after some last-minute adjustments to his car, including the installation of a fresh power unit and a new gearbox.

Strap in, because the rubber is set to meet the road at Zandvoort precisely at 3pm local time, which translates to 2pm for our British fans and a bright-and-early 9am for viewers tuning in from the Eastern United States.
