Netherlands Grand Prix Tips & Predictions
Max Verstappen leads the way at the top of the Formula One standings, and if he is to successfully defend his title it will not be a close-run thing like last year.
The Dutch superstar has picked up 284 points already this season with nine wins from 14 races. He leads Red Bull team-mate Sergio Perez by 93 points.
Home support will play a major role in the outcome of this one. The home supporters will cheer Verstappen home all weekend and I am backing him to finish on top of the podium and extend his lead in the overall standings.
Lewis Hamilton was criticised last week in Belgium when he crashed out on the opening lap in an incident where he was branded ‘an idiot’ by Fernando Alonso.
The British driver had been showing signs of his quality before the break, but it has been a frustrating year for the former champion. I cannot see him getting on the podium in Holland.
Perez is Verstappen’s nearest challenger, but Red Bull will more likely favour the champion if push comes to shove. Back Perez to join Verstappen on the podium along with Hamilton’s team-mate George Russell.
Russell and Carlos Sainz Jr had a great battle for third place at the Belgian Grand Prix with the latter coming out on top. I am backing Russell to get a measure of revenge and pip Sainz Jr to a podium spot.
