Formula 1 Dutch GP

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

Lando Norris topped the Friday practice times for McLaren ahead of the Formula 1 Dutch Grand Prix. Here’s how and when to watch qualifying.

The British driver beat home favourite Max Verstappen to the fastest time in second practice at Zandvoort, displacing the Red Bull driver who headed the first session on Friday, as F1 returned to action after its summer break. 

The second practice session was stalled early on by a red flag after Oscar Piastri crashed at Turn 3, resulting in Daniel Ricciardo also hitting the wall trying to avoid the crashed McLaren. Ricciardo stepped out of his stricken AlphaTauri nursing an injured left wrist and was taken to hospital for checks. 

AlphaTauri has announced Ricciardo will miss the remainder of the Dutch GP due to a metacarpal on his left hand and will be replaced by Liam Lawson.

Behind the top two on the times, Alex Albon impressed to take third for Williams in FP2 ahead of the Mercedes of Lewis Hamilton and AlphaTauri’s Yuki Tsunoda.  

With Pierre Gasly sixth for Alpine, it left Verstappen’s Red Bull team-mate Sergio Perez trailing down in seventh and almost half a second slower. 

What time does qualifying start for the F1 Dutch Grand Prix? 

Qualifying for the Dutch GP starts at 3pm local time (2pm BST), using the regular Q1, Q2 and Q3 knockout session format. 

Date: Saturday 26 August 2023
