F1 NATION: Home joy for Max, pit wall pressure and driver moves – it’s our Dutch GP review
A pulsating Dutch Grand Prix showed the ice-cool thinking and red-hot pace of Max Verstappen, as well as the pressure of life on the F1 pit wall. And we’ll be dissecting it all in this post-Zandvoort edition of our F1 Nation podcast.
Red Bull Team Principal Christian Horner and Max Verstappen’s father Jos reflect on a fourth successive victory for the 2022 F1 World Championship leader, whose advantage in the drivers’ standings is now 109 points.
If Mercedes or Ferrari had made different strategy calls, could the race have ended differently? Tom Clarkson, Auto Hebdo’s Julien Billiotte, Christian Menath of Motorsport-Magazin.com and Allard Kalff from Viaplay in the Netherlands take a deep dive into the Dutch Grand Prix, how and why Max Verstappen won, and the difficulties F1 strategists face when making big decisions.
After missing out on points in Zandvoort, Alex Albon joins the team to look forward to Monza. Plus, the team examine great drives from Fernando Alonso, Lando Norris and Lance Stroll, Ferrari’s aims for the rest of 2022, and the 2023 driver market: what’s next for Alpine, AlphaTauri, Daniel Ricciardo and Mick Schumacher?
