F1 Dutch GP qualifying - Start time, how to watch & more

It’s been another action-packed Friday for F1 at Zandvoort, with Ferrari finishing 1-2 in second practice after Mercedes pulled off its own top spots lockout in opening practice.

But for F1 world championship leader Red Bull it was a tricky day, with home hero Max Verstappen missing the majority of first practice due to a mechanical issue, before struggling for outright performance which meant he was only eighth quickest in FP2.

However, the main talking point came off the track, with F1’s Contract Recognition Board ruling in the favour of McLaren. It has signed Oscar Piastri from Alpine from 2023 to partner Lando Norris.

The ruling leaves Alpine looking for a new driver for next season after losing both Fernando Alonso and Piastri in the past few weeks. 

Insight: Why Alpine only has itself to blame for its F1 driver market blunders 

Gasly remains a frontrunner to join Alpine, with Red Bull advisor Helmut Marko stating the team won’t stand in the way of the French driver going from AlphaTauri to Alpine if “our conditions are met”.

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.

Esteban Ocon likes to point out he’s the first driver since Lewis Hamilton to emerge from a spell as Fernando Alonso’s team-mate with a superior overall points record. While some may disagree, as LUKE SMITH discovered, the 2021 Hungarian GP winner reckons it’s not just luck which has made him France’s pre-eminent Formula 1 driver of the moment…

How Red Bull's dynamic leader shaped its F1 philosophy

The death of Dietrich Mateschitz last month has not only deprived Red Bull of its visionary founder, it has shorn Formula 1 of one of its most influential benefactors. Mateschitz himself was famously media-shy, preferring to let the brand do the talking on his behalf. And, while it’s now normal to speak of Red Bull F1 titles and champions made, Mateschitz never assumed it would be easy or even possible – as ANTHONY ROWLINSON discovered during this previously unpublished interview from 2006…
