The home hero charged to his eighth pole position of the season in a drying qualifying at Zandvoort, topping Q3 by 0.537s from McLaren’s Lando Norris.

George Russell squeezed into third place late on in the session for Mercedes, to push Alex Albon down to fourth on an impressive showing for Williams.

Q3 was interrupted twice by red flags due to separate crashes by Logan Sargeant and Charles Leclerc, who duly slipped down to 10th and ninth respectively at the end of the session.

Lewis Hamilton was the biggest name missing from the pole shootout, as he failed to progress from Q2 and will start 13th.

There were three post-qualifying investigations for impeding, with Yuki Tsunoda given a three-place grid drop for blocking Hamilton in Q2, which dropped him from 14th to 17th.

Both Lance Stroll and Carlos Sainz were at risk of similar penalties, but the stewards judged no further action required for Stroll while Sainz got off with just a reprimand.
