Dutch Grand Prix track guide

Debut season – 1952

Track length – 4.26km

Number of turns – 14

Most wins – Jim Clark (4)

Most poles – Rene Arnoux (3)

2022 winner – Max Verstappen

Reappearing back on the Formula One calendar in 2021 after a 36-year absence, the Dutch Grand Prix has quickly become a fan favourite as home hero Max Verstappen draws huge crowds to the sand dunes of Zandvoort.

Zandvoort is a circuit characterised by a series of fast corners, with the sweeping Tarzan corner at the end of the pit straight being the most iconic turn on the track.

Max Verstappen has taken pole position and won both Dutch Grands Prix since it’s return to the roster and repeat of that this weekend would equal Rene Arnoux’s pole position record and take him to within one of Jim Clark’s four-win record.

Dutch Grand Prix predictions & betting tips

Hamilton and Verstappen podium at 11/8

Max Verstappen is absolutely dominating this season and is yet to finish below second after 12 races. He has won ten of those and he has finished outside the podium places just five times since the beginning of last season, two of which were due to retirements early in the 2022 calendar.

Old rival Lewis Hamilton’s Mercedes may not be at the level to challenge the dominant Red Bull just yet, but the team have certainly made major improvements since the start of the year.

Hamilton has finished on the podium three times in the last six races and has just missed out on the top three in two of those. He has finished fourth and second in the last two Dutch Grands Prix and can make a claim for his 196th podium on Sunday.

Alonso, Hamilton & Leclerc to finish in the top 6 at 5/2

Fernando Alonso may not be taking his Aston Martin to regular podiums like he was at the beginning of the season but the veteran Spaniard is still putting in solid displays amid the other constructors’ improvements.

He finished fifth in Hungary for his ninth top-six finish of the season, with two of his three failures to do so being narrow misses in seventh place.

Charles Leclerc has also enjoyed an uptick in form recently thanks to Ferrari’s upgrades. The Monegasque, who was forced to retire in two of his three opening races, picked up his third podium of the season in Hungary and has finished in the top six in three of the last five races, while he was in the top six in both the 2022 and 2021 Dutch Grands Prix.

Lewis Hamilton, who has finished in the top six in 11 of the 12 races this season, has already been discussed.
