Dutch F1 GP 2022: Verstappen flies to Zandvoort to clinch home pole; The Czech Prez starts fifth
Profeta in his country. Max Verstappen becomes poleman of the Dutch Grand Prix for the second consecutive year after a stunning final lap that helped him beat the mark he had set seconds before Charles Leclerc. Carlos Sainz finished third, Lewis Hamilton fourth and Czech Prez, who had an incident at the end, in fifth place.
After Red Bull did not do best practice both Friday and Saturday Max Verstappen and Sergio Prez hit the Zandvoort track in search of a good starting point for the race tomorrow. The Dutch driver complied from Q1 by imposing conditions, while the mexican suffered a bit because at one point he was close to the elimination zone.

For Q2 (already without Bottas, Magnussen, Ricciardo, Vettel and Latifi) The surprise of the day will arrive. And no, we are referring to the performance of a pilot, if not to the presence of a flare on the runwaywhich caused a red flag which stopped the competition for a few minutes.
After reboot, Verstappen and Checo certified their place in Q3 by going 1-2 on their first attempt. The local hero didn’t go out for a second, while the Aztec rider did, even though he didn’t manage to put in a good time.
With the removal of Gasly, Ocon, Alonso, Zhou and Albon, the 10 best drivers will compete in Q3, where Charles Leclerc achieves a good performance, but Max’s “flight” earns him first place. Checo Prez sought to address the era of Verstappen (1:10.342) and Leclerc (1:10.363), but a lap on his last try made him settle for fifth place and the third starting line for tomorrow.
