Max Verstappen endures a frustrating homecoming in practice at the Dutch Grand Prix as his gearbox fails in the first session… but the army of orange fans will continue to cheer their reigning world champion

FansĀ pour in like orange lava from station to track, through the marijuana whiff and stroopwafel stalls, for a piece of Max Verstappen. Could the script that casts Verstappen as the superhero yet be ripped up? So he should not need to do what he did last week in Belgium, tear through the field from 14th to triumph by 18 seconds. Verstappenā€™s closest pal among the driving fraternity is McLarenā€™s Lando Norris. But does he foresee a long period of Verstappen domination that might see him nudging or eclipsing Hamiltonā€™s peak of 103 wins and seven titles so far?. ā€˜If he has two seasons like this, he can get another 30 or 40 wins and he is up to 70, so he could possibly beat Hamiltonā€™s records,ā€™ said Norris, who dines and jet skis with fellow Monaco resident Verstappen.
