Max Verstappen wins Dutch Grand Prix in front of a huge home crowd to match Sebastian Vettel’s NINE-race winning streak as rain causes chaos on drenched Zandvoort circuit

Max Verstappen danced through the rain to claim a record-equalling ninth consecutive victory in a chaotic Dutch Grand Prix. And, then, after an eternity, a rolling start for two laps, not a standing start. That was because the Mexican was brought in for intermediates after just one lap. On re-emerging from the pits, Verstappen was lying 13th and 11 seconds behind his team-mate. While 2.7sec back from Perez, Verstappen was brought in for the undercut, to move from inters to slicks on a drying track. It was in this contest that Mercedes had hoped to be through George Russell, who started fourth. Seven cars – including Perez – moved to inters after a single lap. Yet, Lewis Hamilton was left skating until the end of lap three.
