The 2022 Formula 1 season rumbles on this weekend with the Dutch Grand Prix on the 2-4 September.

2022 F1 Dutch GP – How to watch, session timings and more

The Zandvoort race is the middle leg of an intense F1 triple-header, with Max Verstappen returning to his home event fresh from a dominant victory at the Belgian GP

The reigning F1 world champion’s ninth win of the season puts him 93 points clear at the top of the standings from nearest rival and Red Bull team-mate Sergio Perez.

Charles Leclerc and Ferrari will be hoping to bounce back from yet another tough race, as he dropped to sixth place due to a five-second penalty for speeding in the pitlane late in the Spa race while pitting for fresh tyres to target the bonus point for fastest lap.

Off the track, the Dutch GP is set to be the first time the F1 paddock reconvenes following an outcome to the F1 Contract Recognition Board hearing on Oscar Piastri’s future between Alpine and McLaren. 

That could have an impact on the latest F1 drive market saga, with Pierre Gasly linked with a move to Alpine during the Belgian GP weekend.

The bold F1 DRS experiment that could end the debate forever

OPINION: The effectiveness of DRS in Formula 1 remains a topic of debate as the winter break gives a chance for reflection on the racing we saw in 2022. For all of its detractors, perhaps an experiment where DRS is cast aside and the impact this has on racing is in order to truly understand its merits in modern F1

OPINION: Everything looked set for Red Bull and Porsche to join forces for the 2026 season, before the marriage between both parties was called off. While at the time it looked like a major coup for Formula 1 in gaining both VW Group powerhouses Audi and Porsche for 2026, Red Bull and Porsche have really been spared a potentially fractious relationship.

The difference between Mercedes’ stumble and the fall of F1 giants

OPINION: Mercedes endured its worst season of the hybrid Formula 1 era, but was mercifully spared its first winless campaign in over a decade late on. It has owned up to the mistakes it made which led to its troubled W13. And while its task to return to title-challenging contention is not small, its 2022 season seems more like a blip than the beginning of a downward spiral.
