Max Verstappen won the home race at Zandvoort after he and Red Bull successfully responded to all the moves pulled by Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes while Valtteri Bottas completed the podium for Mercedes.

The leading drivers kept their positions at the start as Alonso overtook Ocon and Giovinazzi and came from ninth to seventh place while the biggest loser of the first lap was Giovinazzi who fell from seventh to tenth place.

Hamilton was the first to enter the pits at the end of lap 20, replaced soft with medium tyres and returned in third place, four seconds ahead of Gasly, with a slightly slower tyre change of 3.6 seconds, and Red Bull reacted immediately and later called Verstappen who also got his soft replaced with medium in 2.7 seconds.

After starting from the pitlane, Perez fought his way through to 14th place, overtaking Tsunoda in AlphaTauri in the lap 24 after an early tyre change from hard to medium in the lap 8 and at the end of the lap 24 Gasly pitted for mediums and returned to seventh place. between Alonso and Ocon.

Verstappen overtook Bottas who was not yet in the pits, as did Hamilton, and Sainz replaced soft with hard in lap 34 while Ocon made a change from soft to medium in the same lap.

Alonso entered thr pits in the 36th lap and got his softs replaced with mediums and returned in front of team-mate Ocon in ninth place while Leclerc made his change from soft to hard in the lap 37 and returned to fifth.

Hamilton entered boxing for the second time at the end of lap 39 and took a new set of medium tires, and Verstappen entered the lap later and replaced the medium with hard because Red Bull no longer had medium tires.

Perez replaced mediums with softs in lap 47 and overtook Norris in the lap 66 in the battle for ninth place after the McLaren driver, thanks to the 42-lap long first stint on medium tyres, got into the top10.

Two laps before the end, Hamilton entered the pits for a set of soft tyres, as his teammate Bottas had done earlier, and set the fastest lap of the race in the last lap to win an extra point, with Verstappen convincingly won with a 20.9-second lead over his rival took the championship lead.

Bottas had a quiet race in third place in which he could not keep up with the rhythm of the top two drivers, but he won the seventh podium in the first 13 races of this season and took third place in the drivers’ standings.

Gasly drove a great race for AlphaTauri convincingly beating Ferrari drivers in fourth place from which he also started, and Leclerc finished fifth for Ferrari, five seconds ahead of Alonso in Alpine who split the drivers from Maranello.

Sainz lost his place to Alonso two laps before the end after he better preserved his two laps fresher medium tyres than Sainz who had problems on the hard compound so he finished seventh.

Perez managed to fight his way through to eighth place after the start from the pitlane and the ninth was Ocon in Alpine after losing the place to Alonso and later to Perez.

The last point in today’s race was won by Norris in McLaren after a long first stint on the medium tyres, beating team-mate Ricciardo who finished in 11th place.

With this outcome, McLaren lost the third place in the constructors’ standings to Ferrari, which today won 15 points more and after 13 races has a 11.5 points advantage over their old rivals.

With the victory in his domestic race, Verstappen took the lead in the drivers’ standings with a three-point advantage, but due to Perez’s poor result, Red Bull remained second in the constructors’ standings with 12 points gap behind Mercedes.

The next race will take place in Monza, on September 10 – 12.
