Formula 1 Dutch GP

F1 Dutch Grand Prix – Start time, starting grid, how to watch, & more

Red Bull driver Max Verstappen will start from pole position after topping qualifying for the Formula 1 Dutch Grand Prix. Here's how and when you can watch the race.

After losing much of his FP1 session to a gearbox problem, Verstappen recovered in fine style to secure pole position at his home race for the second year in a row.

Despite going quicker in the first and third sectors, a mistake at Turn 10 proved costly for Charles Leclerc, as the Ferrari driver trailed Verstappen by just 0.021s.

Carlos Sainz took third in the sister Ferrari ahead of Lewis Hamilton, who was forced to abandon his final qualifying effort following a spin for Red Bull driver Sergio Perez.

The Mexican lost control at Turn 13, hampering what Hamilton believed could have been a front-row effort - although he conceded that thoughts of contending for pole were "optimistic".

His team-mate George Russell was also impacted by Perez's spin and will line up a frustrated sixth, ahead of best-of-the-rest Lando Norris. The Briton's fellow McLaren driver, Daniel Ricciardo, was eliminated in Q1 and will start 18th, the Australian one of three drivers whose team-mates made the top-10 shootout.

These included Haas racer Kevin Magnussen, who will start nine positions behind team-mate Mick Schumacher in 17th, while four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel was caught out at Turn 13 and got sucked into the gravel on his way to 19th.

His Aston Martin team-mate Lance Stroll made Q3 with the eighth-fastest time in Q2, before a technical problem meant he was unable to leave the garage in the top 10 shootout.

The decisive session came after Q2 was red-flagged for a spectator throwing a flare onto the track, prompting Verstappen to condemn the "stupid" action in his post-qualifying press conference. The individual responsible was removed.
