At home I command: Verstappen, unstoppable in the Netherlands, goes for everything in Formula 1

Prophet in his land, max verstappen (Red Bull) will start from the pole position of the Netherlands Grand Prix of the Formula 1 on Sunday, after having achieved the best qualifying time this Saturday at the Zandvoort circuit.

The Dutch pilot overtook the British Lando Norris (McLaren) and George Russell (Mercedes).

This is the 28th pole position of the career of the Dutchman, the current double world champion, who will aspire on Sunday to a 9th consecutive victory this season, which has him as the absolute dominator.


Conditions were difficult throughout the qualy, with alternating rain and sun at the beginning and end of the qualy. At times, qualifying had sections of a lot of water on the track with cars that turned sideways.

With the track already drier, the last part of qualifying (Q3) was interrupted for the first time by a run from the American Logan Sargeant (Williams).

Then it was the Monegasque charles leclerc who went off track, causing a new red flag (the fifth of the day), synonymous with interruption. Due to that mistake, the Ferrari driver will start ninth on the starting grid.

His partner at Ferrari, the Spanish Carlos Sainzwill start on Sunday from sixth position, behind his compatriot Fernando Alonso (Aston Martin).

The McLarens, with second place for Norris and, a little behind, eighth place for his Australian teammate Oscar Piastri, confirm their good form, even if they still cannot rival the superiority of Verstappen’s Red Bull.

His compatriot Russell appreciated that his third position on Saturday allows him to “get back on the right foot” after a slight difference in the previous races.

Q2, meanwhile, was fateful for his partner, the seven-time world champion lewis hamilton and for the Frenchman from Alpine Pierre Gasly, while Verstappen already signed the best time.

New Zealander Liam Lawson, rookie in this Grand Prix replacing Australian Daniel Ricciardo in Alpha Tauri, victim of a broken hand after getting lost on Friday, was eliminated in Q1.
