F1 2021 Dutch GP Qualifying Results – Verstappen takes pole

    A brilliant performance from Max Verstappen saw the Red Bull driver take pole position in the Dutch GP ahead of F1 title rival Lewis Hamilton


    Max Verstappen pulled out a stunning qualification lap to take pole position for the 2021 F1 Dutch Grand Prix ahead of title rival Lewis Hamilton, who was just 0.038s behind the Red Bull driver. A dominant Saturday from the Dutchman saw him top he timesheets in Practice 3, as well as Q1, Q2 and of course Q3 which gives him the edge over the Mercedes driver. 

    Q2 saw two red flags after both Williams drivers – George Russell and Nicholas Latifi – crashing into the barriers. First Russell flew across the gravel at Turn 13, then when the session was restarted Latifi lost it at Turn 8 resulting in Q2 being abandoned. As a result, Lando Norris was knocked out along with Lance Stroll

    Roberto Kubica replaced Kimi Raikkonen in the Alfa Romeo after the Finn tested positive for COVID-19.  But the biggest surprise of the Q1 was Red Bull driver Sergio Perez who was caught out by track evolution and qualified 16th after he failed to cross the start-finish line in time for one final run.
