The Dutch Grand Prix returned to the Formula 1 World Championship calendar for the first time since 1985 and the event was a great success, with the race providing some tense moments between championship contenders Max Verstappen (Red Bull) and Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes) and the Dutch fans providing a unique atmosphere and support to Verstappen, the home hero.
The Circuit Zandvoort made a magnificent return to the championship with its banking providing us with great images of the current-gen Formula 1 cars.
A magic weekend for @Max33Verstappen, drama elsewhere and lots of memorable moments 🤩

Eventually, the event was sealed with Verstappen taking the 17th win of his Formula 1 career (which makes him the driver with most wins among those without a F1 title). Hamilton finished second, thus losing the championship lead to Verstappen by three points. Moreover, Valtteri Bottas finished third in the other Mercedes, while Pierre Gasly put his AlphaTauri in fourth place and was surely the performer of the day.
We will provide you with the special helmets worn at the Dutch Grand Prix quite soon, stay tuned.
