Red Bull Formula 1 star Max Verstappen claimed his second Dutch Grand Prix win in as many years with the Dutchman profiting off a Virtual Safety Car and Safety Car period. He beat Mercedes’ George Russell and Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc, who finished second and third respectively.
Lewis Hamilton, who looked on course to claim his first win of 2022 for a large part of the race, could only finish fourth. The seven-time world champion was the big loser during the safety car periods with the British driver out of position on both occasions.
Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz was handed a time penalty for an unsafe release meaning Sergio Perez moved into fifth.
Behind the leaders, Fernando Alonso and Lando Norris enjoyed a great battle towards the end of the race with the Spaniard using his experience to prevail over the McLaren driver.
