F1 Dutch GP 2022: how to watch, session times and more

The Zandvoort race is the middle stage of an intense F1 hat-trick, with Max Verstappen returning to his home event following a commanding win 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 Red Bull’s closest rival and team-mate Sergio Perez.

Charles Leclerc and Ferrari will be hoping to bounce back from another tough race, having dropped to sixth due to a five-second speeding penalty in the pitlane at the end of the Spa race while looking for new tires to target the bonus point for lap faster.

Off the track, the Dutch GP will be the first time the F1 paddock has reconvened following the outcome of F1’s Contract Recognition Board hearing on Oscar Piastri’s future between Alpine and McLaren.

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