Max Verstappen could face a grid PENALTY at the Dutch Grand Prix, with stewards investigating the home favourite for overtaking under red flags during Friday practice… which could hand title rival Lewis Hamilton a big boost at Zandvoort

Max Verstappen’s championship hopes could take a big dent heading into the Dutch Grand Prix, with the Red Bull star facing sanctions of a grid penalty after overtaking under red flags. He was looking to pass Stroll on the left when a light panel indicating the red flag flashed up. The Red Bull star will likely argue that while he completed the overtake under the red flag, he had little chance to react to it given how close he was to Stroll and their differing speeds. ‘Max, as soon as he heard it was a red flag, he backed right out of it,’ Horner told Sky F1. ‘I was watching the data, he was completely out of it as soon as he got the message of the red flag.’.
