Highlights Dutch GP 1985:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7vnsPneKHeM


El circuito fue sede del Gran Premio de Holanda de Fórmula 1 en todas sus ediciones, desde 1952 hasta 1985.

La pista ahora de 4,252 km ha introducido el peralte a la icónica curva de Hugenholtzbocht (tercera), mientras que Arie Luyendijkbocht, la última curva de la vuelta (decimocuarta), ahora presenta un peralte de 19 grados, lo que la hace dos veces más empinada que el peralte de Indianápolis, desembocando en la recta de meta con DRS.

Aquí no hay áreas de pista cubiertas de asfalto aparentemente interminables, solo ámplios lechos de grava, tal vez porque no es obra de Tilke, y donde los pilotos pagan el precio por incluso el más mínimo error cometido en la pista.

La firma encargada de rediseñar la pista, Dromo Circuit Design, dijo que querían emular a Eau Rouge y Raidillon en Spa, y el rápido zigzagueo de Silverstone, Maggots y Becketts con los autos de F1 más rápidos hasta la fecha.

:facepalm:





A ver qué tal funcionan esos cambios de peralte introducidos en las curvas 3 y 14 porque las carreras aquí suelen ser bastante procesión. Aunque supongo que la carrera será algo más emocionante que la de SPA, porque como no lo sea... :roto2rie: :cunaooooo:



Muchas gracias por el hilo, McH :abrazo: :abrazo:. Espero que la FIA te deje hacer los Excel sin complicaciones. :sisi1:

Previas de los equipos:


Dutch GP: Preview - Williams

The triple header continues this weekend, with the team travelling north to The Netherlands for Round 13 of the 2021 FIA Formula One World Championship: The Dutch Grand Prix. Circuit Zandvoort returns to the Formula One calendar after a 36-year hiatus having undergone dramatic development, including the remodelling of Turns 3 and 14, now both banked at roughly 18 degrees. Sitting on the North Sea coastline, the track swoops through sand dunes, offering sweeping corners and tight hairpins for the drivers to contend with.


Dave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance: The contrast between Zandvoort and Spa couldn't be much greater: following the long flowing lap in Belgium we now race on a short twisty track here in the Netherlands. Fortunately, it looks likely that the weather will also be in stark contrast to last weekend with dry conditions expected for most of the weekend.


The track's camber and asphalt roughness will dictate the downforce level and we can expect to see teams experimenting on Friday. Several of the corners are very fast but with the exception of T13, they lead immediately into the braking zones of the following corner. There are two independent DRS zones, which should help the racing, but the zone at T10 is short but may help the following car stay in the DRS trigger range at T13 ready for a pass on the start/finish straight.


Having enjoyed a successful day on Saturday last weekend, we are looking forward to testing ourselves at this new circuit. The FW43B is probably not well suited to the demands of Zandvoort, however, as the circuit is new for everyone, we hope that this will level the playing field somewhat, giving both drivers the chance to use their driving skills to make the difference.


Pirelli bring their hardest range of tyre compounds, a combination that we last saw in Silverstone and Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona). If the track remains cool then it may be a challenge to get these compounds working properly, but this may only serve to level the playing field further.


George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/70592/drivers/66/george-russell): I'm really excited for Zandvoort. I've raced there a few times before and it's a fantastic circuit. It's really undulating, fast and flowing and requires a huge amount of commitment. To experience that in a Formula One car will be very special. Obviously off the back of last weekend in Spa, everyone just wants to get racing again and put on a show for all of the supporters at the circuit and for those watching around the world on TV.

Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi): I'm looking forward to carrying the momentum from Spa on to Zandvoort. Although I haven't been there since 2013, I think the track will be quite an intense ride in a Formula One car. It's very high speed and very narrow, so a great old-school circuit which should make for an especially exciting qualifying session. It'll be interesting to experience the changes they've made to the track, and in particular how the banking feels in the car. Hopefully we can have another strong weekend as a team.



https://www.pitpass.com/70592/Dutch-GP-Preview-Williams


Dutch GP: Preview - Haas Uralkali Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team is heading to the seaside, with Circuit Zandvoort set to end a 36-year hiatus for Formula 1's Dutch Grand Prix.


Circuit Zandvoort can trace its history back to the late 1930s, when the coastal sand dunes to the north of the municipality were chosen for a race track, though its construction was delayed until the mid-1940s owing to the Second World War. The flowing and undulating circuit became a mainstay of Formula 1's calendar but it dropped from the schedule after 1985, and was shortened, allowing for a housing development nearby, with track activity significantly reduced.


But in recent years the circuit's popularity has risen once more, and allied with the emergence of Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen), it has returned to Formula 1 circles. In 2019 it was confirmed that the Dutch Grand Prix would return to the championship in May 2020.

The old-school 4.259km Circuit Zandvoort underwent a full reprofiling, including an overhaul of its facilities, with significant 18-degree banking added to the widened Arie Luyendijk Bocht that leads drivers onto the pit straight.


The pandemic postponed the event's return by 16 months but after the longest time between successive national grands prix in history - 36 years - Formula 1 is ready to return to Circuit Zandvoort, with Uralkali Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team eager to put the VF-21 through its paces.


Circuit Zandvoort may not have featured on Formula 1's schedule since 1985 but Uralkali Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team youngsters Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin) and Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher) both sampled the circuit, prior to its modifications, in Formula 3. Mazepin secured a top 10 finish while Schumacher picked up a trophy en-route to the 2018 crown.


Last weekend Formula 1 released its latest update concerning the remainder of the 2021 schedule. Your thoughts please on the planned path to the season-finale in Abu Dhabi on December 12 and the input on the team side to ensure a workable schedule taking into consideration things like personnel and logistics.

Guenther Steiner: "I think going from 23 to 22 events is still a big achievement under the conditions of this pandemic because it's far from over and nobody expected this to drag on so long. I think there is a good plan in place now for the season with the events in place. Changing the schedule around a bit, for us, there is still time to do. Obviously, it's more short-term work but we have got used to that over the last year, so no issue there and for the team having one event less, they will not complain."


The Dutch Grand Prix is a welcome addition to the Formula 1 schedule. Are you pleased to see a return to more historic circuits, with an F1 heritage, alongside Formula 1's push towards new venues such as Jeddah and Miami etc.

GS: "I think going to Zandvoort is a cool place to go to. I always say swapping the events around a little bit also makes it interesting. Now, for a few years we go back to Zandvoort and maybe one of the other historic events comes back because they've made updates to the track. Bringing new events such as Jeddah is also fantastic because you see something new - you get to experience new countries and some new race tracks."


We've witnessed a sea of orange at tracks such as the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Ring and Spa-Francorchamps from all of Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen)'s fans. Now there's a Dutch Grand Prix - just what kind of atmosphere do you expect at Zandvoort thanks to the 'Max Factor', and how great is it to see such passion for drivers in the sport?

GS: "I think that's all that a racing driver can wish for - to have a fan base like Max has got, it's fantastic. Now a race has been brought to his home country it's very nice, even if the fans travel to Austria and Spa en masse! I think even without the Dutch Grand Prix he has a huge following but there will be a sea of orange in Zandvoort."


From what you know of Circuit Zandvoort and the current generation of Formula 1 cars - what do you think we can expect to see in terms of on-track action when the Dutch Grand Prix gets underway?

GS: "I haven't been to Zandvoort in a while. I know they've changed the big turns, they've put banking on it. It's a pretty short circuit. Let's see - I have no expectations but I'm sure it will be fine. They've done a lot of work - one year more than they expected due to the pandemic - so I'm sure it will be a good event."


This is the second race in the second triple-header of the season. During a season with a record number of races planned, and in your rookie year, what are the benefits of a triple-header in your opinion?

Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin): "The benefits are obviously driving and getting the experience. It can get very repetitive and frustrating at times but when you're going to circuits like Spa, Zandvoort and Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza) which are all different - some of which I know very well and some I don't - there's loads of experience that you can gain. I've never driven a Formula 1 car around those circuits so there's great opportunities to improve as a driver."


This will be the first Dutch Grand Prix in 36 years but you've previously raced at Zandvoort during the FIA Formula 3 European Championship in 2016 and 2017 - how will the current specification of Formula 1 cars tackle the Zandvoort's iconic banked corners?

NM: "I enjoy driving this crazy circuit because it's unlike any other on the calendar. It's very special, impossible to overtake - almost - and I'm looking forward to getting out there because they've changed the circuit and added a lot of camber in some places. I'm interested in how that's going to feel in a very fast Formula 1 car."


It's a race with a lot of anticipation and excitement for the paddock and fans alike. Part of that excitement will arguably be due to the fact Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) will be racing in front of his fans, on home soil, for the first time. Your home race in Sochi (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/24/sochi) is just a few weeks away - what added expectation or motivation does that give to a driver?

NM: "A home race is very special. Not every Formula 1 driver has a home race so being one of them makes me feel very lucky. When you race in front of the people who support you it gives you a lot more motivation to power through difficult sessions, but at the same time it adds pressure to you wanting to be doing the best job you can, and sometimes things don't go your way during a race weekend."


This is the second race in the second triple-header of the season. You said during the first triple-header that it was beneficial to spend such time with the team, not only to work together on track but to spend time together off it as well. What are the benefits of a triple-header in your opinion?

Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher): "I think the benefits of a triple-header is as I said, getting to spend time with the team both on and off the track, but also in very little time you have to adapt to situations that are different. Things that may have been difficult for us last week won't necessarily be difficult for us this week. We kind of always have to readapt to what's ahead and start from a clean sheet, and that trains us for the future when we learn to adapt to situations quicker. For example, if we start off in a weekend having a difficult car, in little time - maybe by FP2 or FP3 - we will have a car that is where we want it to be."


This will be the first Dutch Grand Prix in 36 years but you've previously raced at Zandvoort in junior categories, most notably achieving a third-place finish during the 2018 FIA Formula 3 European Championship. How will the current specification of Formula 1 cars tackle the Zandvoort's iconic banked corners?

MS: "To be honest, I have no idea how it's going to be! You can drive on the simulator, you can do a whole lot of preparation but the truth is nothing will resemble the truth of how it's going to be out there in a real car. It's going to be very important this weekend to approach things with an open mind to see how the car will behave in places. I do know the track from Formula 3. The track has changed in different places - most notably the banked corner in the final part of the track which should allow us to open the DRS sooner and then we have Turn 3 that is also very banked now. We'll definitely have to see and try out a few things to be able to set-up the car as we want it to be."


It's a race with a lot of anticipation and excitement for the paddock and fans alike. Part of that excitement will arguably be due to the fact Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) will be racing in front of his fans, on home soil, for the first time. Currently there isn't a race in Germany on the calendar - what added expectation or motivation does that give to a driver and how much would you like to race on home soil in a Formula 1 car for the first time?

MS: "I know how it feels to drive on home soil and personally I'd love to drive in Germany in front of my home crowd. I think it does gives you that little bit of extra push but also extra pressure so it's how you convert that pressure into motivation and drive. It's going to be nice for Max - you're going to see lots of orange t-shirts."

Dutch GP: Preview - AlphaTauri Pierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly): "It doesn't matter that Formula 1 is the most high-tech sport in the world, no one can control the weather. It was a real shame that we couldn't race, especially so for all the fans who turned out and waited patiently. And for us it was also disappointing because we had a strong weekend up to that point, with another sixth place on the grid. I was convinced I had a chance of doing something really good in the race.


At least we don't have long to wait to race again, so I will take the positives from our Spa performance and transfer them now to Zandvoort. I raced there in 2012 in Formula Renault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault) 2.0, so quite a long time ago! The track layout has changed a lot since then and I've experienced it on the simulator. I think the whole weekend should be an amazing experience, being the first Dutch Grand Prix since Max has been in Formula 1. It's going to be an interesting weekend, a replay of Monaco in some respects, as the straights are very short and the track itself is very narrow, so overtaking will be particularly complicated. That means Qualifying will be especially important and, as we seem to perform quite well in that respect, it could turn out to be a good thing for us. Another factor is that being by the sea, we can expect to find a dusty track surface on Friday, with sand blowing onto the asphalt, so conditions will evolve over the weekend."


Yuki Tsunoda (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/71/yuki-tsunoda): "Racing in Japan, you get used to driving in the rain, but the visibility on Sunday in Spa was just too poor to race. I was looking forward so much to my first race in a Formula 1 car on that circuit, as part of my learning experience in my rookie year, but ultimately safety is the most important factor. From what we could tell in free practice in Belgium, our team still looks competitive in the midfield, so now we get to go again in the Netherlands and see what we can do.


I have never driven at Zandvoort, in any category. Since they have modified the track layout, it should be a new experience for all the drivers, not just the rookies like me. It looks unusual from the simulator, with a lot of banking, which is quite steep and that will need good skills to maximise in terms of carrying speed into the next part of the track. I think I am quite good at adapting reasonably quickly to a track I have never seen before. But I must make sure I don't lose any track time through mistakes, because it will be important to learn as much as possible in free practice. Also, in Zandvoort, the track walk will be even more useful than usual, because the simulator cannot give you a complete picture of what a new circuit is like. The simulator helps but the walk gives you a full picture."

Dutch GP: Preview - Red Bull Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) and Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez) look ahead to this weekend's Dutch Grand Prix.
How are you feeling after winning the shortest race in Formula One history?

Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen): It's not how you expect to win a race and not the way we wanted the weekend to go but a win is a win and the points are still important for both championships and we have to maximise every opportunity. Of course as drivers we all wanted to race and put on a show for the fans but it was clearly not an easy decision and the lack of visibility meant it just wasn't safe in the end so we have to respect that.


The Dutch GP will be your second home race in a row, how does it feel to be heading to the Netherlands to race in Formula One for the first time in your F1 career?

MV: I'm really looking forward to the race at Zandvoort. It will be special to have a race in the Netherlands in front of my home crowd but also as a driver it's a good challenge to go to a new circuit and find the limit in an F1 car. It was amazing to see so many fans supporting us in Austria and Belgium and I hope we can put on a good show for everyone in the grandstands this weekend. As for the track, it might be a little hard to overtake on but for single lap performance I think it's going to be rewarding. The qualifying laps will be very quick there so any mistakes will be really costly. After the race was cancelled last year this year will be even more special and of course it would be amazing to win on another home circuit in front of the Orange Army.


You won the 2014 Formula 3 Masters race at Zandvoort. How has the track changed since then?

MV: I've only done one race at Zandvoort and it was in a Formula 3 car. At that time I was known as 'the son of' but it's going to be the other way around now [laughs]. The track has of course changed since then, with a few corners adjusted. Already in the F3 car, the corners were really enjoyable and they were pretty fast so I'm excited to race again in the F1 car with even more grip. I've also been there a few times with Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) for show runs in an old f1 car, so I have driven a few laps on the updated track in an F1 car which could be useful on the first few laps.


Just how impressive was the Team's repair job on your car in last weekend's Belgian GP?

Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez): My Team did an incredible repair job in Spa so now I just want to repay them with a result this weekend. What they did was so impressive, it just shows how hungry everyone is at Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Racing Honda. The teamwork and the way everyone jumped on the car without giving up on a chance of repairing it in time made me extremely proud and it was amazing to witness it in the garage.


How do you prepare mentally and physically for a possible re-start when the race is red flagged and your car may or may not get repaired in time?

SP: For sure it's tough to stay focused during the red flag period, especially when your car is in a million pieces. It is quite challenging, and then it's not certain if the race will even happen so it's really important to stay in the zone. You just have to be prepared at all times because you never know what can happen, this is the key. Max did a really good job in qualifying on the Saturday and it was great that he was able to score some valuable points and close the deficit to Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes).

It's been over a month since you actually 'raced' so what are your thoughts going into Zandvoort this weekend?

SP: Yeah it's been a while since I took part in a race [laughs] so I am looking forward to when the lights go out this Sunday, that's for sure. I really hope that Zandvoort is the race that brings us back to the podium and we are pushing hard as a Team to make sure that happens.


Have you driven the circuit before in junior categories or on the simulator and if so what do you make of it?

SP: I've only driven the track on the simulator but my initial thoughts are positive and so I'm really looking forward to experiencing the real thing now. I think this kind of track layout in a Formula One car is going to be a pretty good challenge and I just hope we can all have a great race and put on a show for the fans.


• Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Racing have won more races this season than the last two years combined. In addition, this is the most wins in a season for Honda since 1991.


• Should Checo win this weekend, he will become the most successful Mexican driver in world championship history, breaking a tie with Pedro Rodriguez.


• According to the United Nations, the Netherlands currently ranks fifth among all countries in the 2021 World Happiness Index, and it may go even higher should Max become the first Dutchman to win his home Grand Prix this weekend.


• Having won in the country of his birth at the Belgian Grand Prix, Max now has the chance to take a unique double by also winning in the country that he represents in the Netherlands this weekend.


• It is a 302-kilometre drive from the Circuit Spa-Francorchamps to the Circuit Zandvoort, approximately the same distance by which the Belgian Grand Prix was shortened on Sunday. Driving at the speed limits it would take approximately 3 hours 22 minutes, which was the approximate length of the red flag delays.


• Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) was first sold in the Netherlands in 1995, the same year in which Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) first appeared in Formula 1 as a title sponsor, in partnership with the Sauber (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/9/sauber) team.

Dutch GP: Preview - Mercedes Toto Wolff: There's still a feeling of frustration that we couldn't race in Belgium last weekend. We've never seen a situation like this, and the conditions were incredibly difficult out there, so it was just not safe to race.


If the weather had eased up, I think we would have been in for an incredible race for all the passionate and dedicated fans who were waiting in the rain. So, it isn't a satisfying feeling to leave Belgium with just a handful of laps behind the Safety Car, but it is what it is. We need to close that chapter and quickly move our focus to the next one.


We lost points in both Championships last weekend but thankfully, we don't have long to wait for an opportunity to extend those gaps, and that is an exciting prospect
F1 returns to Zandvoort this weekend for the first time in several decades. It's an exciting track for the drivers because it is fast and flowing. It feels like a proper old-school track, so I am sure they are looking forward to taking on that challenge.


As a team, we're relishing the challenge of tackling a new track, because it is new for everyone and that means fresh opportunities to find advantage. So we'll be looking to hit the ground running on Friday and take the fight to our competitors. It will be exciting to see who comes out on top.


What Can We Expect from Zandvoort?

How do we prepare for a race?

Before the cars have even emerged from the garage on Friday for practice, a huge amount of work has already happened in the virtual world, to ensure we are in a good place by the time the cars hit the track. This is true for both familiar and unfamiliar tracks.


One of the most important areas of the preparation process involves computer simulations, where the model of the car is coupled with a "virtual driver" to complete thousands of computer laps of a circuit's racing line file (which is generated in state-of-the-art simulator facilities).


This form of preparation produces a few terabytes of data, as laps can be sped up and run in parallel with other simulations, sampling a massive range of set-up options, to find the optimum direction for the car.


The strategy department also use computer simulations to determine strategy options for Qualifying and the race. The models feature all drivers and teams, assumptions for pit stop scenarios, pit stop losses, tyre degradation and car competitiveness. These are thrown into the computer simulations to run a wide variety of scenarios, determining which tyres to use, what lap to pit and much more.


The data output from all these different simulations are compared and overlaid with other simulation data, to decide the fastest options. Our technical partners play a big role in this stage of the process, from HPE providing data centre infrastructure and hardware, to Pure Storage's storage solutions and TIBCO's visualisation and reporting tools.


While the simulation tools are running on the computer, the Driver-in-Loop (DiL) simulator is also in action, utilising a virtual environment, sophisticated models of the car and track, but with one important difference: the virtual driver is replaced for a real one. They'll complete hundreds of laps in the simulator, trialling different set-ups to try and get a better feeling for what works and what doesn't around that track.


This work is all designed to prepare us the best we can to hit the track running on Friday. The aim is always to arrive with a set-up direction we are confident in and can build on, as we work through our run plans, rather than having to make significant changes during practice.


How does this preparation differ for a new or unfamiliar track?

For the most part, the preparation stages are business as usual, running through the usual rhythm and drumbeat of work ahead of a race weekend. But there are some differences that need to be taken into account, which do mean preparation timeframes are longer.


The DiL and simulation tools that are used in F1 require a hugely complex and impressive model of the circuit, including bumps, kerb shapes and corner gradients. The more detail, the better! As we can get more accurate information from it.


For new tracks, we understandably don't have these detailed track environments to use in our simulations, so we need to start these from scratch. The FIA provides CAD drawings and coupled with high-tech lidar data (from laser-scanning the track), these lead to the 3D map of the circuit being created.


Obviously, for tracks that we have raced on before, we already have these 3D circuit environments, and these will continue to be tweaked and changed each year. But having to create a new map is a much bigger piece of work, which must be completed in incredible detail.


For a new circuit, the information and data we can get in the virtual world is hugely important, because we have very little historical data. So teams are much more dependent on these simulation tools, which leads to a more extensive programme.


For a race we have been to before, we'd typically complete a two-day programme in the build-up to an event, completing roughly eight race distances in the process. But when it is a new race or venue, a further two days are added to the programme, plus a further day for the race drivers to familiarise themselves with the layout.


What are the main characteristics of Zandvoort?

The Zandvoort track layout stands out as one of the more unusual circuits on the 2021 F1 calendar, with a fast, flowing and old-school feel.


There is a real mix of corners speeds, which will put many aspects of car performance to the test and provide the drivers with a challenging circuit to master! It's also an undulating track, rising and falling between the sand dunes, with a rollercoaster-like vibe similar to Portimao.


One of the most striking elements of Zandvoort is the super-fast, steeply banked Turns 13 and 14. The 18-degree banking will add significant load to the tyres through this section, which will impact the durability and life of the tyre compounds.


Climate wise, the weather in Zandvoort can be quite challenging and changeable, which could trigger some potential tyre issues, such as graining or blistering. But given the banked final corner, high-speed turns and undulations, it's not surprising that Pirelli have picked the hardest tyres in their range.


Which sections of track do we expect to be the most challenging?

The banked final two corners, which feature a banking angle twice as steep as the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, will definitely be challenging for the cars and the tyres, putting a lot of forces through them. But they should be fairly simple for the drivers to tackle.


Getting this section of track right is crucial for the run onto the main straight, which leads to one of the few overtaking opportunities: Turn 1. The 180-degree corner is similar in profile to the first corner at the Hungaroring (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/6/budapest), so it should provide a good chance to make a move and try alternative lines.


The banked Turn 3 will also be a challenge and sets you up for the long, fast sweep through the next few corners. Traction here will be a particularly crucial area to find time through those flat-out turns.


Elsewhere, the tight and twisty Turns 11 and 12 will be another potential overtaking spot and a good exit here will either set up a strong run through the final banked corners, or bring you close enough to follow the car in front through those last two turns and try a move down the main straight.


Regardless of specific corners, Zandvoort is a fast track and will provide drivers with a fun challenge, particularly in Qualifying when pushing to find the limit.

Dutch GP: Preview - Aston Martin Lance: "I'm excited to return to Zandvoort because it's a place of fond memories from my European Formula Three days. The circuit has evolved in recent years, which only amplifies my excitement and anticipation to return."


Sebastian: "Like everyone, we have prepared as much as we can for the new Zandvoort circuit through simulation, so we're ready to hit the track and experience it. The new banking section at the final corner should be exciting for drivers and will hopefully help overtaking because it looks very narrow in places. Zandvoort has an incredible history in Formula One, and the fans are very passionate, so I'm happy to see it have a place on the calendar."


Keys to the Race

Tyre behaviour will play a key role in both overtaking and overall strategy. Tyre wear and degradation levels determine how much opportunity there is for gaining an advantage by pitting for fresher tyres. The tyre allocation for Zandvoort will be the same as at Silverstone, Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) and Portimão, with the C1, C2 and C3s.


A Safety Car has appeared in nine of the last 12 races with only Monaco, France and the opening Austrian race running without interruptions. There have also been five red flags this year, more than in any of the last 20 seasons. With limited track experience, and on a narrow circuit littered with plenty of gravel run-off, drivers are likely to make mistakes - so expect a Safety Car or Virtual Safety Car during the race. Practice is also likely to see interruption as drivers get into the groove at the new venue.


Zandvoort offers two DRS zones, however the straights on this circuit are short. The tighter corners at the end of DRS zones (Turns One and 11) may offer some of the best opportunities to pass, while the banked corners of Turns Three and 14 may give drivers the opportunity to take different lines to help set up an overtake.

Dutch GP: Preview - Alpine Formula 1 heads to Zandvoort for the first time since 1985 for this weekend's Dutch Grand Prix. Executive Director Marcin Budkowski offers his thoughts on the washed out Belgian Grand Prix and previews the seaside circuit of Zandvoort.


Having had time to digest and reflect on the event, what is the team's thoughts on the Belgian Grand Prix?

Marcin Budkowski: It was a shame not to be able to hold the race, especially for the fans in attendance at the track. Huge credit has to be paid to them for their patience and keeping spirits high in the wet all afternoon, but it was just not possible to run in those conditions.


From the team's side, we started the weekend well and showed competitive pace in the dry on Friday, however, our car seemed to struggle as soon as we put the Intermediate tyres on and we had a tricky qualifying that didn't put us in the best position for the race.


Our qualifying result was neither a reflection of the potential of the car nor the drivers' skills in the wet, and work is on-going at the factory to understand our pace deficit in the wet and more specifically on the Intermediates tyres. This is even more relevant as nowadays the Extreme Wet tyre only gets used when there is standing water causing aquaplaning, and more often than not, the session gets red flagged in such a case.


How exciting is it to try out a new circuit like Zandvoort?

MB: It's nice to visit a historical circuit like Zandvoort, where Formula 1 hasn't raced for a number of years. Taking on a new circuit is always a challenge, especially one that has some banked corners with unusual trajectories, and Fernando and Esteban have done extensive preparation in the simulator with their engineers ahead of this weekend. The track proximity to the seaside means it's windy and gusty, which will be an additional challenge for the drivers. Hopefully this weekend we can put on a good show for the fans!


After the washout in Spa, Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon) is looking forward to taking on Zandvoort on the Dutch coast. It's a circuit the Frenchman knows having raced there in DTM in 2016 as he aims to continue his points scoring run.


How frustrating was it to not race in Spa?

Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon): It was disappointing not to race at Spa at the weekend. Safety is the most important thing and with the rain it just wasn't possible. During the laps under the Safety Car, visibility was really poor, so much so, you couldn't even see the car in front. I'd like to again thank all the fans around the circuit who were very loyal to us drivers all afternoon and waited to see some action. Hopefully the weather is better this weekend and we can go racing properly this time! On our side, with the running we did, we showed some competitive pace in the dry on Friday. There's always more to learn and we have things to further understand, which we'll be putting into practice this weekend.


Having raced there before, what is Zandvoort like to drive?

EO: It's a really cool circuit and one I've enjoyed racing at before. I've raced there in DTM in 2016 and it's a great track with a really nice flow to it. The corners come quite quickly and it's a busy lap at the wheel. The two banked corners are very fun, so tackling them in a Formula 1 car is something I look forward to. Overtaking might be challenging, but who knows until we've given it a go. Our target remains the same. We want to maintain our points run in order to consolidate fifth in the championship.


Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso) heads to Zandvoort and its 4.259km seaside circuit for his first ever Formula 1 race in the Netherlands. The Spaniard is fresh from a frustrating weekend in Belgium that saw little to no action on Sunday due to the constant rainfall around Spa-Francorchamps.


Spa-Francorchamps was tricky with rainy conditions throughout the weekend, what did you take away from it?

Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso): Well it was disappointing not to race on Sunday, but I think it would have been too dangerous given how wet it was. I think we looked quite strong in the dry conditions, so it was a shame that rain was forecast all weekend. We took lots of data from the Friday and Saturday that can help us later this season, but, in the end, it wasn't the weekend any of us wanted. Let's hope we can put on a proper show for the fans in Zandvoort.


You've never raced in Netherlands before in Formula 1, are you looking forward to it?

FA: Zandvoort will be interesting for everyone with very few of us having raced on the circuit before. It'll be a unique challenge and I'm sure the atmosphere will be good.

We're not sure how we will fare this weekend but racing on a new circuit is not something out of the ordinary in Formula 1, especially in these recent times. We've looked at a lot of simulation data and I was back at Enstone this week, so I feel as prepared as possible.


Do you have a part of the circuit you're most excited about racing on?

FA: I will have a better answer for this after Friday, but I would say the banking at the end of the lap will be fun. It's not like any other corner in Formula 1. I have concerns that overtaking will be difficult in Zandvoort but let's see after we've done some running. Ultimately, I think your starting grid position will be very important.

Dutch GP: Preview - Alfa Romeo Historical Zandvoort is back. A long absence, started in 1985 and extended in 2020, when Covid saw the race cancelled, is finally over as Formula One returns to the Netherlands. Alfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo) Racing ORLEN approaches the second stage of this European triple-header ready for action, after the disappointment of the washed-out Belgian Grand Prix.


Zandvoort is a place rich of history: a traditional venue for the European tour of races, a place where prestigious pages in our sport's books were written. The original track may be gone, but the legacy lives on in the new layout, which incorporates many of the original corners - including the fantastically named Tarzanbocht, a banked turn that provides one of the most spectacular overtaking spots in the lap.


The team will hope for a better weekend than last: already having a race would be a step forward. A new track provides opportunities and Alfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo) Racing ORLEN will need to be ready to make the most of them. From the first moment on track, on Friday, to the chequered flag on Sunday, every second will be crucial for the success of the weekend.


The Dutch Grand Prix is back: now it's time for the team to seize the moment.


Frederic Vasseur, Team Principal: "I am looking forward to the next round of the championship: we all owe it to the fans to put up a great show and a new track, in the shape of Zandvoort, is just what we may need for a spectacular race. Even though it's not a complete new circuit for Formula One, it is so for modern cars and this could create some unpredictability. Whatever happens this weekend, we need to be ready and make the most of any opportunity."


Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen): "It's always interesting to drive on a new circuit, especially one that is based on an old-school track like Zandvoort. It's too early to say how the racing will be or what the track will feel like, but that means we will need to make the most of the Friday sessions to make sure we arrive to qualifying in as ready a state as possible. Except for learning the track, the weekend is pretty much like any other so I am not expecting any big surprises."


Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi): "Zandvoort is a place with some really good memories from me: I had a really strong weekend there in 2015, when I was in F3 - I won the first race and finished second in the other two - and later in the year I won the Masters of F3 there. That was the last time I raced in the Netherlands and it's definitely a nice result to look back to. This weekend will be a whole different story, it's a regular weekend with the added challenge of having to learn the circuit in this car. We need to be ready and optimise what we have to try and get a good result. It would be a great boost ahead of Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza)."


https://www.pitpass.com/70597/Dutch-GP-Preview-Alfa-Romeo


Dutch GP: Preview - McLaren Lando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris): "After a disappointing weekend in Belgium, I'm looking forward to heading back to track this weekend and hopefully putting on more of a show for the fans. Zandvoort is a cool circuit and one that I've raced - and won - at before, back in 2017 in Formula 3. The track has changed quite a bit since then, with new banking, which could change how the race plays out. I've actually been back to the UK this week to drive the circuit in the simulator, so that we're ready to hit the ground running when we get out on track on Friday."


Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo): "Last weekend wasn't how I expected to celebrate my 200th GP, and it's a real shame the fans didn't get to see a proper race. Luckily, that doesn't happen very often in F1, and we're right back at it at Zandvoort this weekend. It's been a while since I've been there, and I'm actually really excited to go back. The fans there are very enthusiastic, and I feel a lot of Dutch support. Hopefully we can take the positive momentum from qualifying in Spa forward and score some decent points."


Andreas Seidl, Team Principal: "The Belgian Grand Prix was an odd weekend for many reasons, and it was a real shame the fans didn't get to see a proper race.

Thankfully we get to go racing again right away with F1's return to Zandvoort for the first time since the ‘80s. It will be an interesting challenge for the team and drivers, as the cars have changed so significantly since then, while the overall layout of the circuit remains relatively similar. The tight and twisty characteristics with increased overtaking difficulty will dictate how we tackle this new challenge, and what to prioritise in terms of set-up and work programmes during the free practice sessions. Like Monaco, qualifying will go a long way to determining the finishing positions on Sunday.


"As we head into the second race of this triple-header, both factory and trackside teams are working flat-out to give us the best chance of scoring good points, which is so vital as we battle for third in the Constructors' Championship. Back in Woking, the team is working hard to keep us well stocked with spares, and the trackside team, alongside our HPP colleagues, is putting in incredible effort to ensure the cars are in the best possible racing condition. The entire team is very aware of how close this championship fight is, and everyone is doing their bit to help us perform. Hopefully this weekend we can see some proper action, and secure a good haul of points."

Dutch GP: Preview - Ferrari The second triple-header of the Formula 1 World Championship now heads 300 kilometres north from Spa-Francorchamps to the Zandvoort circuit on the shores of the North Sea in the Netherlands. It returns to the calendar 36 years on from its last visit back in 1985. Despite this long gap, almost all the current drivers have raced here in junior formulae.


The circuit measures 4.259 kilometres and the fact that it is almost on the beach brings with it the difficulty of wind generally blowing quite a bit of sand across its surface. The track climbs and drops significantly and several sections are crowd favourites. Definitely worth a mention is Tarzan corner, or Tarzanbocht in the local language, a sharp right hairpin at the end of the start-finish straight, which is slightly banked. It is famous for an amazing overtaking move when Gilles Villeneuve went round the outside of Alan Jones in the 1979 race. Other classic turns include the Rob Slotemakerbocht and the fast and blind right-hander, Scheivlak.


For its return to the calendar, the circuit has been modified and made more spectacular at a couple of points in particular: turn 3 and the last one, turn 14, now boast a 19 degree banking, which should allow the drivers to go through them at much higher speeds. The narrowness of the track and its twisty nature means that overtaking is far from easy and a medium to high downforce set up is required. Qualifying will be very important. For Zandvoort's return to the calendar a special high grip surface has been produced by Shell, an Innovation Partner of Scuderia Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari). Its excellent characteristics have led to it instantly being referred to as "Flying Dutchman", a nickname applied to every particularly brilliant driver from these parts. There are two DRS zones, between turns 10 and 11 and on the main straight.


The cars take to the track at 11.30 local time for the first hour of free practice, with the second one taking place at 15.00. On Saturday, the final free practice session start at noon, with qualifying getting underway at 15.00. The 31st Dutch Grand Prix to count towards the Formula 1 World Championship will start on Sunday at the same time.

Dutch Grand Prix: facts & figures


2. The number of circuits in the Netherlands: Zandvoort and Assen. Zandvoort is used predominantly for car racing and for many years was the venue for the F3 Masters, one of the most important races in the category, on a par with the Monaco Grand Prix and second only in terms of prestige to the Macau Grand Prix. Meanwhile, Assen is an iconic motorcycle racing venue, which has hosted the Dutch TT, a round of the Motorcycle World Championship, since 1949.


10. The lowest place on the grid from which the Dutch GP has been won. Two drivers have done this. The first was Rene Arnoux, who won the 1983 edition in the number 28 Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) 126 C3. It was the Frenchman's seventh and final Formula 1 win, his third with the Scuderia. Two years later, Niki Lauda went from tenth to first in a McLaren (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/5/mclaren). For the Austrian too, it was to be the last victory of his amazing career, his 25th win. The longest climb up the order to finish on the podium falls to Jean-Pierre Beltoise, who finished second in a Matra in 1968, behind team-mate Jackie Stewart, having started 16th.


18 & 19. The gradient of the banking at turns 3 and 14 at Zandvoort. By a long way, these two parabolic turns are the steepest on the F1 calendar. As a comparison, the famous Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza) Parabolica, which is to be named in honour of Michele Alboreto as from the Italian Grand Prix weekend, is banked to just four degrees.


26. The percentage of the Netherlands' surface area that is below sea level. A network of dunes and dams along the coast and the banks of major rivers ensures these areas do not flood, with several pumping stations on hand to deal with excessive rain.


1500. The number of bridges in Amsterdam, the Dutch capital. The city is laid out over a network of more than 90 small islands linked by a canal system that is over a hundred kilometres in length.

Dutch GP: Preview - Pirelli The Zandvoort circuit looks somewhat different to the track that last hosted Formula 1 in 1985. In particular, turns 3 and 14 (named after former circuit director John Hugenholtz and Dutch driver Arie Luyendyk respectively) are now banked at around 19 degrees. That’s roughly double the banking at Indianapolis, which is about nine degrees – meaning that the cars will be able to take these corners much faster than they did in the past, with more energy going through the tyres.


Turn 14 is taken flat-out, generating forces in excess of 4g, while there are two corners with heavy braking of around 5g: the entries into Turn 1 and Turn 11. Turn 7 is another corner that generates lateral forces of about 5g, taken at over 260kph. This leads immediately into Turns 8 and 9, completing a sequence of three consecutive corners with high g forces.


As expected from a circuit that was originally inaugurated back in 1948, Zandvoort has a distinctly old-school feel to it, with fast and narrow turns, along with a number of elevation changes.
One of the most famous corners is the Tarzan hairpin: the first corner of the lap, which is now closer to the start-finish line than it was previously. The Hans Ernst bend towards the end of the lap also has a wider exit than it did before, enabling drivers to get on the power sooner.


Zandvoort is located in an area of sand dunes near the beach, with the wind sometimes blowing sand onto the track and affecting grip; an issue normally associated with places like Bahrain.


The three hardest compounds in the P Zero range have been chosen for the fourth time this season, as Zandvoort and the Dutch Grand Prix return to the Formula 1 calendar after 36 years. The C1 is the P Zero White hard, the C2 is the P Zero Yellow medium, and the C3 is the P Zero Red soft.


The return of the Dutch Grand Prix was initially scheduled for 2020 but postponed to this year as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. With some high-energy corners and no relevant previous data to fall back on, the hardest tyres are the most suitable choice.


Mario Isola: "The Dutch Grand Prix is obviously a new challenge but thanks to the data provided by Formula 1 and the teams, we have been able to come up with a tyre nomination and prescriptions that are closely aligned to what we can expect from this exciting new venue. Being a new track, the free practice sessions will also be essential when it comes to gathering real data and formulating the tyre strategy for the race. What's for sure is that the circuit layout is going to place heavy demands on the tyres, as can be seen from the computer simulations that we have already carried out. We've already raced at Zandvoort in the GT World Challenge this year, and this too has provided us with some useful information."

FORMULA 1 HEINEKEN DUTCH GRAND PRIX 2021 -Zandvoort
Resultados FP1
Viernes, 3 de septiembre de 2021



Lewis HAMILTON marcó el mejor tiempo en los primeros entrenamientos del regreso de la F1 a Zandvoort, el que ahora es la «casa» de VERSTAPPEN, que terminó en segunda posición a 97 milésimas.

La sesión estuvo detenida durante durante gran parte de la misma debido a un problema que tuvo Vettel en el MGU-K al inicio de la sesión por el que, tras intentar solucionarlo en el garaje, tuvo que finalmente parar su coche a la salida de boxes con un pequeño incendio cuando se habían disputado poco más de 15 minutos. El problema llegó cuando los comisarios no podían tocar el coche para apartarlo porque la luz que indica que el ERS estaba activo, seguía encendida.

Hasta que un mecánico de Aston Martin no se acercó al coche con ropa de protección adecuada para comprobar que era seguro tocar el coche, no pudieror retirarlo, reanudándose la sesión a falta de tan sólo 6 minutos para el final, impidiendo que los equipos pudieran completar sus programas.

La tercera posición la ocupó Carlos SAINZ. Los Ferrari parecen ir bien aquí, con LECLERC terminando 4º.

Tras los Ferrari terminaron BOTTAS y los Alpine, otros que parecen ir bien aquí, de ALONSO y de OCON.

Mal comienzo de fin de semana para Checo PÉREZ, que terminó 16º y a casi dos segundos.


Otro que no ha tenido un buen arranque de fin de semana es TSUNODA, que trompeó nada más salir y luego ya no pudo rodar más.

Viernes, 3 de diciembre de 2021



La segunda sesión comenzó con 5 minutos de retraso y terminó con los dos Ferrari en lo más alto, con Charles LECLERC en primera posición y Carlos SAINZ en la segunda a 154 milésimas. Además, mostraron un buen ritmo de cara a la carrera.

Tras ellos finalizaron OCON, BOTTAS, VERSTAPPEN y Fernando ALONSO.

Tras sus problemas en los libres 1, los mecánicos lograron dejarle a VETTEL el coche listo para poder rodar en estos segundos libres.

La bandera roja volvió a aparecer en esta sesión, y lo hizo en dos ocasiones.

La primera apareció cuando el coche de Hamilton se quedó parado al inicio de la sesión. Los comisarios pudieron retirar el coche rápido, ya que quedó muy cerca del vial pero la bandera roja se alargó un poco más porque después de que recogieran a Hamilton, lo volvieron a llevar donde estaba el coche para revisar no sé qué. A pesar de haber rodado tan poco, HAMILTON termminó 11º.

La segunda bandera roja apareció para retirar el coche de MAZEPIN tras quedar atrapado en la puzolana.

Resultados FP3
Sábado, 4 de septiembre de 2021



Max VERSTAPPEN marca el mejor tiempo en la última sesión de entrenamientos libres en Zandvoort, tercera sesión que ve su tiempo recortado por una bandera roja, la provocada por el accidente de Sainz.

Tras Verstappen, los dos de siempre, los Mercedes, con BOTTAS 2º a medio segundo y 3º HAMILTON a casi 8 décimas del holandés.

Checo PÉREZ ha quedado algo más cerca de Max en cuanto a posiciones se refiere, ya que ha terminado 4º pero laa 9 décimas que los separan siguen siendo demasiadas.

En 5ª posición encontramos a Fernando ALONSO, que sigue demostrando que el Alpine va bien aquí, al menos en entrenamientos.

Los Ferrari han acabado más atrás que ayer, con LECLERC 9º a 1.273 y SAINZ 16º. El programa de los de Ferrari se ha visto alterado por el pronto accidente de Sainz, que sólo pudo rodar 5 vueltas. Leclerc tuvo que recoger más datos en el tiempo restante de la sesión. Esperemos verlos más arriba en calificación y esperemos que Carlos pueda participar sin problemas y sin penalización.

Hay que destacar la actuación de Robert KUBICA, que a pesar de haberse tenido que subir al coche a prisa y corriendo y ver la sesión recortada por la bandera roja, ha terminado entre los Haas de MAZEPIN y SCHUMACHER en la plaza 19ª a 2.539.

Nikita no está contento con Mick y el perjudicado al final ha sido Vettel.


Will Buxton @wbuxtonofficial (https://twitter.com/wbuxtonofficial) · 30min (https://twitter.com/wbuxtonofficial/status/1434149101638193157)

Mazepin is absolutely furious. Rarely seen a driver so angry that wasn’t in a crash. Says his team-mate deliberately “fu##ed (https://twitter.com/hashtag/ed?src=hashtag_click)” him. Has made his feelings to the team clear. Schumacher for his part says he did nothing wrong and can’t understand what the problem is.



For context Nikita says they have an agreement as to who gets priority on track on alternating weekends. This is the 2nd time Mick has ignored it. Mick says he got the call to go, which obviously Nikita didn’t get. Confusion ended up ruining Seb’s lap. Neither happy about that.

Con las debidas disculpas, por la "tardanza", dejó aquí las impresiones de los equipos después de la jornada de Prácticas del Viernes:

Dutch GP: Practice team notes - Mercedes It was a disrupted day of running at the Dutch Grand Prix, with several red flags limiting lap counts and changing run plans across Friday.


Lewis topped the timesheets in the first session, with Valtteri in P5. This session included a lengthy stoppage after Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel)'s Aston Martin suffered a power unit failure.


It was P4 for Valtteri and P11 for Lewis in FP2. Lewis brought out the red flag after five minutes of the session, after he was forced to stop out on track.


The reason for Lewis' early exit from the session was because of abnormal oil system behaviour, which limited him to only three laps in FP2.


In between the red flags, our focus was on completing low and high fuel running on the different tyre compounds.


Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas): Overall, it was a good day for me, and I enjoyed it out on track. It's an exciting track to drive, with all the banked corners and high-speed sections. It's got a nice flow and it's fairly easy to settle into a rhythm. I'm sure tomorrow in Qualifying will be even more fun. It was quite a disrupted day with a lot of red flags, but even so, I got quite a lot of laps in, particularly in FP2 where we did some proper running on both single lap and long runs. I'm sure we have plenty of data to go through. The margins look small, which is nice to see, so everything is possible.


Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton): This track is epic. It brought back so many memories when I first got out there, from when I drove here before. I knew it was great when I was in Formula 3, but in a Formula One car it is just something else. It's a shame I couldn't complete more running, but the loss of power cut my FP2 short quite early on. I've got some catching up to do and we need to investigate the issue in more detail, but it's not the end of the world. The car wasn't feeling too bad, in the limited running I had, and Valtteri had a productive FP2, so we'll have plenty of learnings to take from that. It was amazing to see the crowd here today, there were so many people out there and the Dutch fans bring so much energy. I hope it's a great weekend for everyone.


Andrew Shovlin: We've had a tricky day with red flags costing us a lot of running time in the first session and then Lewis had an issue with his car, so we had to stop on track. Everyone has struggled with a lack of running so there isn't masses of data to work with and many had low fuel runs that were compromised with traffic, so we have to expect many teams to move forward tomorrow. We're struggling a bit with Turn 2-3, we seem to be losing there on both low and high fuel but we've got a bit of time tonight to understand that. There are a few other places we can improve the balance but overall, it doesn't seem too far off. We have to recover a bit of running with Lewis but there is time to do that in the morning session.


https://www.pitpass.com/70616/Dutch-GP-Practice-team-notes-Mercedes


Dutch GP: Practice team notes - Red Bull Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen): "It's been a good day and it was really enjoyable to see everyone in orange having fun in the grandstands. Of course the track is also very fun to drive with a lot of fast corners so it was good to finally get out there. From our side I don't think the lap times are very representative today as I did my fastest lap on a used set of tyres. I was improving on another push lap and then Mazepin had a spin otherwise I think we would be higher up but it's only Friday and we're still looking at all the details of where we can do better and improve. The long runs looked competitive which is positive but we also know that the start position is very important here so we'll see what we can do to get more pace out of the car overnight."


Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez): "It was awesome to get out there and drive this old school circuit. It's very different to the other tracks we go to and with so many consecutive right-hand corners it's a pretty unique and physical challenge. I've never driven here before so it's completely new and with so many red flags it was difficult to get into a rhythm. You really need the confidence going into the session to trust the car in order to push it and I wasn't quite there or fully comfortable today so there are a couple of things on my side that we need to look at and make some decisions on in order to get the most out of the package. It's amazing to see so many fans enjoying themselves and cheering in the grandstands so I expect the energy around the track to only get better and better over the weekend."


https://www.pitpass.com/70613/Dutch-GP-Practice-team-notes-Red-Bull


Dutch GP: Practice team notes - McLaren Lando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris): "A tough first day. It was tricky with the traffic and difficult to get laps in with the red flags and stoppages. It began with a good feeling with the car, and we weren't too bad, but we've got some work to do to be able to consistently get good laps in during qualifying, which I'm sure we can do. A decent day but work to do overnight."


Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo): "This track's cool, it's a lot of fun! I definitely enjoyed that. This morning I was relatively comfortable, this afternoon not so. We tried some things on the car that, in hindsight, I don't think were the right direction. But, that's what free practice is for. It made FP2 a little more tricky, but we'll go back and learn from that. I think we'll still be in good shape tomorrow, but today we were just a little bit off in FP2. There are some quick cars out there, so we've got our work cut out for us, but it's a fun track and I'm really enjoying it."


Andrea Stella, Executive Director, Racing: "It's very nice to be here in Zandvoort for the first time with modern F1 cars. We've discovered a very interesting circuit with some special features - the banking is like nothing we experience elsewhere on the current calendar and presents interesting challenges for the drivers who can adopt a variety of lines. We expect qualifying tomorrow to prove crucial because overtaking on Sunday is going to be difficult.


"Today's sessions were disrupted by red flags, which meant we acquired less data than we ideally would've liked in order to prepare for tomorrow. We did, however, gain enough knowledge of the circuit to ensure we have a very busy evening studying what we've learned, putting in place everything we need for a competitive performance in qualifying and for the race, which may be eventful at this 'old school' track."


https://www.pitpass.com/70622/Dutch-GP-Practice-team-notes-McLaren


Dutch GP: Practice team notes - Aston Martin Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel): "I think overall that was a decent afternoon session. We had some catching up to do because of the power unit issue this morning. So I had to find the rhythm quickly and it helped that I have driven here before many years ago. They did not change too much on the track [layout], but I think the changes they have made are for the better. It is an exciting lap because of the banking and corners with camber are always good fun to drive. We need more circuits with these types of corners. The crowd was great, too, and I am enjoying the atmosphere. There is more to come from me and the car so it will be interesting to see what we can find overnight."


Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll): "It was a positive day to start the weekend and I really enjoyed the experience of driving at Zandvoort once again. Track time was limited in FP1, we finished ninth, and we looked strong in FP2 until we were caught out by the red flag when I was on a quick lap. I felt comfortable in the car and I think we have a good baseline. We know that qualifying is going to be key to success here because overtaking will be so difficult, but there is some degradation, which might make strategy a bit more of a factor. We have got plenty of data to look at tonight and we will aim to take another step forward tomorrow."

Dutch GP: Practice team notes - Alpine

Alpine F1 Team finished with both cars comfortably inside the top ten at Circuit Zandvoort today as preparations began for this weekend's Dutch Grand Prix, the first F1 race in the Netherlands since 1985.


Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon) was the third fastest driver of the day, putting in a strong lap in the afternoon's session, with Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso) two tenths adrift in sixth.


Free Practice 1 began with the grandstands awash with fans around the packed 4.259km Grand Prix venue. Both drivers managed a number of laps early on, before Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel)'s stricken Aston Martin halted proceedings for a lengthy delay. The session resumed with only six minutes left on the clock, ending with Fernando - driving in Zandvoort for the first time - sixth and Esteban less than a tenth behind in seventh, both on the Soft tyres.


Despite some further incidents in Free Practice 2, both drivers completed some solid running early on with Fernando on the Hard tyres and Esteban opting for the Medium compound.


Esteban and Fernando then switched to some low fuel running on the Softs. The Frenchman's time of 1min 11.074secs placed him third and Fernando's 1min 11.280secs was enough for sixth on the timesheets.


The pair finished their day on some high fuel runs on the Medium and Soft tyres and remained third and sixth at the chequered flag.


Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon): "It's been a fun Friday and learning this track in a Formula 1 car has been awesome. It's been high grip, a lot of Gs, undulation and taking on the banked corners, which, overall, has been mega fun. As a team, it's been a good day and we look quite competitive, but we know qualifying is when that counts. I experienced that in FP1 with the close call with Lando [Norris]. It was a little close for comfort but in the end nothing happened and we move on. The car handled really well today and I'm sure there's more for us to find. It's a small track, narrow in places, and managing traffic in qualifying will be a challenge."


Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso): "It was another challenging day for us but it was the same for everybody with all of the small incidents and red flags throughout the day. We have to analyse everything now and make sure we're in the best shape tomorrow. I don't think it's going to be an easy weekend and the traffic in qualifying will be difficult to manage. I do like the track, it's quite different in a few places and the banked corners are fun. The atmosphere is amazing too. Let's see what tomorrow brings."


Davide Brivio, Racing Director: "It was interesting to discover a new track, but unfortunately we lost a lot of time with the stoppages and had to slightly change our schedule to recover. In the afternoon we did a good job, completing long and short runs and pick up as much information as possible. In terms of performance, so far we are in a good position. On the Medium tyres, Esteban did a good run and had decent pace. Both drivers also looked strong on the Soft tyre from the initial data; we have to go through all the analysis tonight, but it was a positive day, all things considered."

Dutch GP: Practice team notes - Ferrari Scuderia Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari)'s Dutch Grand Prix weekend has got off to a positive start. The Zandvoort track appears well suited to the characteristics of the SF21, with Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc) and Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz) topping the time sheet at the end of the day, the Monegasque being the only driver to get under the 1'11" barrier. On a track where qualifying will be more important than usual, today's result is a reasonable starting point to work from, even if obviously there are many variables to consider, such as the various fuel levels being run and when the best times were set.


The first practice session was stopped for a long time to recover a car parked on the track. Despite the time lost, Charles and Carlos were able to get to grips with the Zandvoort track surface, even though it was still very dirty, running first on the Hard Pirellis and then the Softs towards the end, when running resumed. On this compound, Sainz, who did 19 laps, set the third fastest time of 1'11"601, 22 thousandths faster than his team-mate who did 18 laps and was fourth quickest.


Once again, the second hour of practice was also interrupted a few times because of technical problems or mistakes, which come at a high price at Zandvoort because of its gravel run-off areas. The Scuderia Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) drivers began the session on Medium compound tyres to round off the evaluation of all three compounds on offer, before switching to the Softs for a qualifying simulation during which they set the quickest times. Charles was fastest in 1'10"902, while Carlos was right behind with a 1'11"056. Both men then switched to race configuration, Charles doing 29 laps and Carlos 28.


This is the first Dutch Grand Prix in 36 years and the first impressions are very encouraging. The old style track is thrilling and spectacular and the Dutch fans, who already packed out the grandstands as from this morning, are in festive and boisterous mood. It shows how eagerly anticipated was this round, without a doubt the biggest sports event of the year in this country. It's a nice foretaste of what Formula 1 will find in Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza) next week.


Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc): I think there is still quite a bit of potential for us to improve. It is looking good for now, but we shouldn't get carried away because it's just Friday and I feel our competitors have a bit of performance still to reveal.


I really enjoyed driving on the new Zandvoort. The banking feels very special on the first timed lap and it's just overall a fun track to drive on. Then for the race, I don't think there will be much overtaking so it will be important to secure a good grid position tomorrow. Our race pace was not as good as the single lap performance so we will be focusing on that.


Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz): It's an impressive and different track compared to what we are used to. It was fun to try different lines in FP1 around the banking corners and to push a bit more in FP2. I enjoyed myself out there today and the atmosphere with the fans close to the track is great!


In terms of performance, we felt confident straightaway with the car balance and with the car performance. We managed to do some decent running on soft tyres, whereas other competitive cars were caught out by the flags, so that's maybe why we look so good on the time sheet. For sure we have room to improve, but still the car felt good and it was a positive Friday for us.


https://www.pitpass.com/70618/Dutch-GP-Practice-team-notes-Ferrari


Dutch GP: Practice team notes - AlphaTauri Pierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly): "I must say it was really fun today, it's an amazing track to drive on and very unique, especially turn 3 - it's like sliding in a toboggan, with the banking. Obviously, the sessions were interrupted quite a lot with the red flags, so it was difficult to make it through our whole programme, but we still managed to complete a lot of it. I think we're not looking as good as we would've liked but hopefully, we can work tonight to find a bit more performance for tomorrow. I'm confident we can do that. I think traffic in Q1 tomorrow could be an issue and I need to try to avoid this mess. Then I think looking towards the race it will be very difficult to overtake, so the priority is getting a good starting position."


Yuki Tsunoda (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/71/yuki-tsunoda): "In the morning we were testing some aero components, but we had a minor PU issue that we had to investigate and weren't able to go back out. For the rest of the session, I watched a lot of on-board videos from other cars and tried to learn as much as possible before the afternoon. In FP2 I completed my first push-lap, I tried to take it easy at first as there's not a lot of run-off areas on this track. At the end I managed a lap I was quite happy with, I obviously need to do a lot more work tonight, but I felt quite confident in the car and it was important for the team to get this data, so we can prepare for Qualifying tomorrow. I think Quali will be really important, as it seems that it'll be difficult to overtake here during the race, so hopefully I can put it altogether when it counts tomorrow."


Jonathan Eddolls (Chief Race Engineer): "We had quite a complicated day, having some issues with the car as well as a number of red flags, which had an impact on our test plans. Pierre had a busy programme in FP1, completing a number of aero tests before the red flag. Following this it was just a case of fitting the Softs and getting a lap in but, of course, everyone had the same idea, so there was a large amount of traffic on his fastest lap. Unfortunately, Yuki had some reliability issues during FP1, which meant he was unable to complete a single timed lap during the session, which somewhat put him on the back foot, given this is a brand-new track. This was traced to a minor PU issue, which we were able to resolve, and the mechanics did a great job getting the car ready to run in FP2.

"We worked to a typical plan for both cars in the afternoon, with short runs on new tyres before the longer run at the end of the session. Yuki spent the session building up the pace and in the end on the soft tyre he set a respectable lap. Pierre continued with the aero test plan, gathering further data for us to analyse tonight. We seem to be lacking a bit of pace on the short run, so we have some work to do tonight to understand how to improve the car. Also, given it's a new track and many of the corners are linked, driver lines can be quite different, so we will spend some time analysing all of the GPS and video data, which we have at our disposal. It looks very tight in the midfield, but of course our aim is Q3 tomorrow."

Dutch GP: Practice team notes - Alfa Romeo Dunes, banked corners, old-school feeling and a massive party on the grandstands: Zandvoort is fun, we can all agree on that. The first impact of modern Formula One with the Dutch circuit has left drivers happy, fans thrilled and teams excited about the challenge of this modern classic.


In a celebration atmosphere, with grandstands filled to the brim with orange-clad fans, music blasting through the air, Formula One returned to the Netherlands and it was a good day. The sun shone warmly, a far cry from the deluge of Belgium, and the cars tackled the circuit, eager to bring home data about the vast unknown.


It was not an easy task: red flags wiped out most of the morning session and interruptions hampered progress in FP2 as well: but in the end, it was a positive day with decent mileage, given the circumstances, and even some encouraging feedback from the stopwatch.


Much remains to be done, of course, and tomorrow is when things really start to matter: but it's a good start nonetheless, something we aim to build on for the rest of the weekend.


The atmosphere on the grandstands reminded us of just how great a Formula One race weekend can be: what we know, is that we need to keep this party going.


Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen): "We did a good job today, despite all the interruptions with the red flags. It's quite a different track from what we usually drive on, but it's nice: it's not an easy one to put a lap together but driving on something new is a good challenge, and the crowd really makes an atmosphere.. As always on a Friday, we still have to find a few improvements here and there: it's normal and we can make a step forward for qualifying. The objective remains the same, to have a place in Q2 - we'll see how it goes tomorrow."


Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi): "It's been a positive Friday, this track is really cool to drive, especially with these cars. From the moment we arrive, it feels like a party and it's a huge credit to the Dutch fans, they really welcomed Formula One back. The track is enjoyable but it's not an easy one on which to put everything together: still, we did a good job and we're satisfied with where we are, both in the race runs and on the single lap. Tomorrow, of course, is another day, but we had a good start and we can build on it: hopefully we can have a good qualifying as overtaking is not easy here, so Saturday's result will be crucial. We will give it our best."

Dutch GP: Practice team notes - Haas Round 13 of the 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship began with practice on Friday at Circuit Zandvoort as teams prepared for Sunday's Dutch Grand Prix.


Friday's track action consisted of two 60-minute sessions - FP1 and FP2 - on the 4.259-kilometer (2.646-mile), 14-turn circuit - the Dutch sunshine welcomed by all after the rain that dogged last weekend's Belgian excursion.


Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher) and Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin) were quick to get going in FP1, Formula 1 cars returning to the seaside track for the first time since 1985. The Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) pair opened their accounts with a handful of exploratory laps on the Pirelli P Zero Yellow medium tires. Progress was short lived however after a lengthy red flag stop due to the recovery of Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel)'s sidelined Aston Martin. With just six minutes remaining Schumacher and Mazepin were finally unleashed back on track - this time on the Red soft compound. Mazepin subsequently set a 1:13.516 to place 17th with Schumacher directly behind in 18th on a 1:13.847.


FP2 saw both VF-21s exit the garage on the medium rubber prior to a switch to softs for their qualifying simulations. Mazepin duly banked a 1:12.835 before an off at turn 11 beached the Russian in the gravel - his session ending abruptly bringing out a brief red flag stoppage. Schumacher recorded a best lap of 1:12.607 on the softs. The German ended his Friday with a high-fuel long run sampling both the medium and soft compounds. At the checkered flag Schumacher placed 17th with Mazepin 19th on the timesheets.


Uralkali Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team ran a total of 74 laps on Friday across FP1 and FP2 - 48 by Schumacher and 26 by Mazepin.


Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin): "It was a lot more fun than I expected. The first time I passed the banking in the last corner I experienced something very different with my body - it felt quite cool! A new feeling for me, for sure, in Formula 1. Overall, it was quite a challenging day. I was very happy with the car in FP1 and then we made some changes which didn't quite do what we expected given the track has improved. Loads learned and looking forward to getting out there in FP3."


Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher): "I think the word rollercoaster really fits for here! It was a decent day, still lots to learn about this new track but I'm sure it's the same for everyone. I still think we need to tweak it a little bit to get everything we can out of it, but I think we're on a good road. We still have some margin but I'm sure we will find it. Things might look different tomorrow but for today we can be very happy."


Guenther Steiner: "A very good track - I think it's very interesting and everyone's very excited about it because it's all new and it's different to the other tracks. In FP1 there was the issue of Vettel being stuck out there, so we didn't do too many laps but the laps we did, all went well. FP2 started well. Except for the spin and ending up in the gravel for Nikita, we had a good session. We're getting a lot of data and drivers are getting used to the racetrack. We just try and learn as much as possible."


https://www.pitpass.com/70612/Dutch-GP-Practice-team-notes-Haas


Dutch GP: Practice team notes - Williams Dave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance: It has been fantastic to run the cars on this tricky circuit. The whole track is demanding with very little opportunity for the cars or drivers to get a rest. The profiling of the circuit makes several of the corners quite difficult and places different demands on the car and the tyres, with several drivers finding the limit during the day. The regular red flags hampered some of our work, but we still got a lot of our programme done, including some useful high fuel running late in FP2.


With a short track and hard tyre compounds, track position is going to be at a premium in Q1 as it was regularly today. Whilst we thought that Zandvoort might be less favourable for the FW43B than Spa, the times today don't really tell the full story as we didn't get to do representative laps. There is a lot to do tonight to improve the car, but we are happy that there is more to come tomorrow.


George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/70621/drivers/66/george-russell): It was a great experience driving this circuit today. I think it's definitely a driver's favourite, it's very undulating and all the banking is great to drive. It's fast, flowing and you can't put a wheel wrong and that is what we all want from a race track. It wasn't easy out there though and it was a very interrupted day with all the red flags. There's therefore not a huge amount to take away from today but the pace isn't quite as we'd like. Nevertheless, a few improvements overnight and I think we will be able to make some good steps. The traffic is also really difficult to manage with this short lap and I think that it is going to be key to get a clear run tomorrow, particularly in Q1.


Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi): It was definitely challenging out there today. It's a tight and twisty circuit with very few straights, so having 20 cars on track made it difficult to get some space. I spent a lot of time looking in my mirrors which can be quite difficult to manage on a hot lap. It's also a very fun track to drive though; it's high speed and narrow, so a proper old school track that will punish you if you make a mistake!


I think we have some work to do tonight as it's not quite where we wanted to be ending FP2. Whilst I felt like I got up to speed quite quickly, the red flags caused a lot of disruption, so it would have been great to get some more data from the team's perspective. I think there's some improvements we can make in both low and high fuel runs, so we'll see what we can do and go again tomorrow.

Dutch GP: Practice team notes - Pirelli With just 20 minutes run of FP1 (following delays in recovering Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel)'s stricken Aston Martin) FP2 was the crucial session today, run at exactly the same time as qualifying and the race (15:00). Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari)'s Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc) went quickest in the session ahead of his team mate Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz), with both cars using the P Zero Red soft C3 tyre to set their best times. Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) driver Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton) topped the times in the short morning FP1 session.


With Zandvoort returning to Formula 1 for the first time since 1985, the emphasis today was very much on learning the track and how the three hardest tyre compounds in the Pirelli range - selected for this weekend - interact with it.


The afternoon FP2 session got underway in 25 degrees centigrade ambient and 30 degrees on track, with sunny weather. This session was also interrupted by two red flags, albeit for less than 15 minutes in total this time.


As expected, the brand new track was quite 'green' all day before any rubber was laid down, with sand and gravel also pulled onto the track.


The limited running today meant that the information about the tyre gaps is really only based on FP2. Between soft C3 and medium C2 there is a gap so far of 0.7 seconds, higher than an our initial estimation, while the gap between medium C2 and hard C1 is 0.6 seconds, based on our pre-event simulation (with not enough information available from the session).


Mario Isola: "There was at least one red flag during every session today - including Formula 3 free practice and qualifying - which obviously limited all the running and made it harder to draw any firm conclusions. It was also quite a dirty track, with sand and gravel on the surface. However, the teams still managed to obtain some of the data that they needed on this unique and unforgiving new track - and this was useful preparation, as safety cars and red flags seem likely to be a possibility during the race as well. More work and information is needed tomorrow though in order to get a clearer idea of the optimal strategy. We managed to get a good idea of the gap between medium and soft today, while we do not yet have enough data to accurately predict the gap between medium and hard. Despite the impressive banking at Zandvoort, the tyres are exactly the same as we bring to the other races, with the latest structure introduced from Silverstone designed to cope with even the heaviest loads."

FORMULA 1 HEINEKEN DUTCH GRAND PRIX 2021 - Zandvoort
Resultados sesión de CALIFICACIÓN
Sábado, 4 de septiembre de 2021



Pole de Max VERSTAPPEN en su Gran Premio de casa.

Lewis HAMILTON será quien le acompañe en la primera línea de salida mañana. 38 milésimas los han separado. Curiosamente, el tiempo que hizo Verstappen en su primer intento en Q3 fue 1:08.923, exactamente el mismo que hizo Hamilton en su segundo intento. Aunque Max no hubiese mejorado esas 38 milésimas, habría logrado la pole al haber marcado ese tiempo antes que Hamilton.

La tercera posición ha sido para BOTTAS, que compartirá línea de salida con Pierre GASLY, que ha vuelto a tener una gran sesión de calificación.

Los Ferrari saldrán juntitos con LECLERC 5º y SAINZ 6º. Sólo los han separado 10 milésimas.

Gran actuación de GIOVINAZZI que ha logrado meter su Alfa Romeo en la 7ª posición, por delante de los Alpine, que durante todo el fin de semana parecían estar por delante.

OCON saldrá desde la 8ª posición y Fernando ALONSO desde la 9ª.

El último de los pilotos que mañana no podrá elegir neumático en la salida es Daniel RICCIARDO, que vuelve a quedar por delante de NORRIS que saldrá 13º después de no poder terminar su último intento en Q2 debido a la bandera roja provocada por LATIFFI, que saldrá 14º.

Otra carrera a la remontada para Checo PÉREZ, que salió demasiado tarde en Q1 y quedó 16º.

Bien KUBICA terminando 18º a pesar del poco tiempo en el coche.

Mal los Haas con sus peleas internas que han perjudicado a VETTEL, que mañana tendrá que partir desde la 17ª posición. Los de Haas están siendo investigados por ello pero de poco consuelo le puede servir al alemán cualquier sanción que les pongan teniendo que salir tan atrás en este circuito tan estrecho.

Goval, sigo con mi empanada mental. He bajado la clasi porque no he podido verla en directo, total que la pongo en el pendrive, me preparo un refresco, me acomodo y me pongo a verla y digo "joder, otra vez con lluvia, no fastidies". Eso ha sido unos minutos hasta que me ha dado cuenta de que habia copiado en el pen la clasi de Spa que aun tenia en el disco duro :roto2:

La clasi "la de verdad", muy buena. No sé que tipo de carrera proporcionará el circuito pero es espectacular. Cada vez que ponian un onboard con alguien llegando a la mitica curva hiper-peraltada del S1 y se pasaba algo de frenada, me cagaba da miedo, asi de claro. Y la curva final de entrada a la recta de meta, 3/4 de lo mismo, acojonante.

Y, bueno, ver el circuito a tope, que decir, una pasada.

Impresiones de los equipos después de la jornada de Clasificación:



Dutch GP: Qualifying team notes - Mercedes Lewis narrowly missed out on pole position by just 0.038s and will start second on the grid for the Dutch GP. Valtteri was three tenths further back in P3, after failing to improve on his initial effort due to a tricky final sector.


Like the practice sessions earlier in the weekend, it was a disrupted Qualifying session, with two red flags in Q2 - the last of which brought the session to a close two minutes early. Both Lewis and Valtteri will start the race on the Soft tyre compound.


Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton): That was so close. I gave it absolutely everything out there, but Max did a fantastic job and deserved pole position. I've been trying to play catch-up after missing most of yesterday's session, so that made it a bit more of a difficult day.

Nevertheless, the car felt good out there and what an amazing track to qualify on. A big thank you to the Dutch fans, I love coming to this country and I really appreciate the welcome I have received. We haven't seen a crowd like this in a while so hopefully we put on a good show for them tomorrow. It's going to be tough, because it's a challenging track to overtake on, but strategy will play a big role. We've got two cars at the front, so we'll both be giving it our all and what a track to go racing on.


Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas): That was a fun Qualifying session. It's a great track to drive, especially in the middle sector where it is so fast, and also the banked corners. There's a really nice atmosphere here, too. The car has been feeling good, but Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) were just a bit out of reach today. We're still lacking a little bit in the first sector, particularly through Turns 2 and 3. My last lap in Q3 wasn't the best, I was up on my time until Turn 11 but then got a bit too greedy and braked too late. But we have two cars in the top three and that's important, so it's all to play for and we'll be on the attack tomorrow. It's a hard track to overtake on but the start and strategy will provide opportunities, so I'm sure we will still see a great race.


Toto Wolff: We're satisfied with where we ended up in Qualifying. Firstly, it was great to see the drivers pushing to the limit on an exciting track like this. Lewis missed out on a lot of running yesterday but he put a fantastic lap together in the end, he probably outperformed the car. Valtteri did a strong job throughout the session, too, so having the cars in P2 and P3 is a good starting point for tomorrow. There are options on both one and two stops for the race and we have both our drivers up at the front, so that gives us the chance to play different strategies and see where we end up. I think it's going to be a really exciting race and there's a good atmosphere here, so I'm looking forward to seeing how it all plays out.


Andrew Shovlin: We've been on the backfoot through this weekend; losing time with Lewis yesterday didn't help but we've struggled with the car through Turn 2 and 3 and that was a trend that remained in the morning session today. We made some changes going into Qualifying, but we didn't get a great read on that in the first half of Qualifying, as we ran the Medium to start and then ended up on cold tyres in the second session due to a red flag. The final session was the first time we had hot tyres and the Soft compound, and the car was working reasonably well. Lewis ended up less than four hundredths of a second off Max and Valtteri would have been right there had Turn 11 and 12 been a bit cleaner on his final run, so whilst we missed out on pole position, we can still be satisfied with the progress. It's going to be very difficult to overtake but having two cars at the front is an advantage and the indications from the sessions so far are that incidents are likely, so there's still plenty of opportunity.

Dutch GP: Qualifying team notes - Red Bull Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen): "It feels great to be on pole position and of course it makes it even more satisfying when it's at one of your home races. Everyone was going crazy each time I crossed the line and it's amazing to see people having the time of their lives in the grandstands. I've had so much fun already from FP1 driving this track and in qualifying when you're on low fuel it's just incredible. Sector two and the banked corners, plus the last corner where you're flat, it's a nice sensation and it's just so enjoyable to drive. It's an old school track that is flowing and fast like Suzuka where you really feel the grip of a Formula One car, it's challenging and I enjoy tracks like this. Today we worked really well as a Team and took another good step forward with the car compared to yesterday. Qualifying was quite tricky with the red flags, you could see there was no room for error which is nice and makes it more exciting, but my lap itself was good. There were two occasions where I lost some time, first with a double upshift coming out of Turn 3 where it is very bumpy, and then my DRS didn't open coming out of the last corner which we need to look into, but fortunately the lap was enough for pole. Of course at this track it's important to be starting from out in front because it's very difficult to overtake here so the start will be key and then we need to look after our tyres and be on alert because new tracks can often bring chaos. I expect Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) to be strong, you could see the gap was close today, so tomorrow isn't as straightforward as it seems."


Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez): "I'm really disappointed today because we had such a fantastic car going into qualifying. We were making great progress and could have had two cars up there tomorrow, possibly locking out the front row and so we really didn't expect to be in this position. We were just so unlucky at the end, people were going so slow in the pit lane and I didn't manage to get my second lap in, I missed it by just one second and a half. We'll discuss today together as a group and see what we can learn for the next race as this is how we get stronger as a Team. We know tomorrow will be really difficult to overtake, but this is an unpredictable track, no one knows what to expect and so of course I will try and minimise the damage and score something for the Team."


Christian Horner: "It was an amazing performance by Max under massive pressure in front of his home crowd to become the first Dutchman to take pole position at a Dutch Grand Prix. Max has got a lot of racing experience behind him now and the way he deals with pressure has been outstanding in recent years and he's done a great job today. It's a tough track to overtake at and he's in the best place to start tomorrow's race so the first part of the job is done. With Sergio, we sent him out in Q3 with enough time to go but then everyone backed up in the Pit Lane which ultimately cost him and he just missed out on getting another run by a second and a half. It was massively frustrating for him and the Team so we'll have to fight back tomorrow. Looking at the start, we have the two Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) directly behind Max so they'll be able to split their options so it's important we just get our heads down and focus on our own race."


https://www.pitpass.com/70642/Dutch-GP-Qualifying-team-notes-Red-Bull


Dutch GP: Qualifying team notes - McLaren Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo): "75 per cent of quali, in Q1 and Q2, was really good relative to where we thought we were. There were a lot of things that felt good, and the lap times were good. It came to me quite naturally and normally, and I was able to improve a little bit in each corner. I felt comfortable.


"In Q3 I felt like I was lacking grip from Turn One, so it was a bit more of a struggle from then on. We don't really know why yet. The track might have changed and maybe we just missed something, but we'll look into that and try to find an answer. It's frustrating as Q3 dictates the grid and that was our worst run in qualifying. There're some positives to take from today, but still some unknowns. We'll keep working at it."


Lando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris): "Not the day I wanted or that we were expecting - I just didn't do the best job. I didn't feel too confident in qualifying to hook it all up and put it together. It's probably the closest qualifying we've had all year. It's a shame as this is the race we really needed to be strong, but we just didn't manage it. We also didn't get that last opportunity to try again because of the red flag. It's going to make our day tomorrow very tricky, but I think we're definitely quicker than a few other cars ahead of us, so hopefully we can still score some points."


Andreas Seidl, Team Principal: "This was a very difficult Saturday afternoon for us. On both sides of the garage, it was simply difficult to extract more performance out of the car. Daniel's Q1 and Q2 went well and he could put in a very good lap at the start of Q2, which allowed him to progress to Q3 despite the difficulties we experienced today, but we then struggled with grip in Q3. On Lando's side, in three attempts he never felt really comfortable with pushing to the limit. He missed his final opportunity in Q2, but even with that, it was marginal whether he would progress.


"Given the nature of the Zandvoort track, this puts us in a difficult position for the race, given how hard it is to overtake here. At the same time, so far this weekend we've seen that this is a track where a lot can happen. The job tonight is to see what we can learn from today, make any improvements we can make and be ready to take any opportunities that may come our way tomorrow."


https://www.pitpass.com/70639/Dutch-GP-Qualifying-team-notes-McLaren


Dutch GP: Qualifying team notes - Aston Martin Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll): "It is a real shame that the red flags prevented us from making Q3. We were on for a much better lap and I think it would have been enough. We had pace in the car, so it is a shame not to be able to fully show it. While it is not the result we wanted today, I am already looking forward to qualifying here next year - it is such a fun circuit to drive. From P12 on the grid, I know we can fight for points. I do not expect a lot of overtaking in the race, so making a good start and executing a good strategy will be crucial. Our focus is already on tomorrow and coming back stronger."


Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel): "It is a disappointing result and there are lessons to learn today. I think a place in Q2 was achievable with a clear run and I felt good in the car, but there was a lot of traffic that prevented me from getting the chance to complete a push lap and maximise the track evolution. Regardless, we were not able to make a big enough step forward from our encouraging practice pace, so we need to understand why that was the case. It is difficult to overtake here, but anything can happen tomorrow, especially on such a challenging track. We will try to make up ground in the race and take advantage of any opportunities."


Otmar Szafnauer, CEO & Team Principal: "Lance drove very well in Q1 to make it smoothly through to Q2, but sadly Q2 was then disrupted by accidents for both Williams (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/11/williams) drivers, first George [Russell] then Nicholas [Latifi], the latter's shunt ending the session and thereby preventing Lance from improving on P12, which is where he was sitting at the time of Latifi's accident. Lance's aim will be to score points from there tomorrow. Sebastian was very unlucky to be badly impeded by both Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) drivers in Q1, and the result was that he qualified in P17 on a circuit where overtaking is likely to be very difficult. Nonetheless, he has a faster car than the drivers who qualified near him - Checo [Perez] apart - so we hope he will be able to make progress despite his ruined qualifying."

Dutch GP: Qualifying team notes – Alpine Alpine F1 Team will start tomorrow's Dutch Grand Prix with both cars inside the top ten following a red flag-interrupted qualifying session around the rolling dunes of the Circuit Zandvoort.


Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon) continued his and Alpine's strong form this weekend with eighth on the grid thanks to a lap of 1min 09.933secs. Fernando was just two hundredths of a second adrift and lines up ninth for his first-ever race in the Netherlands.


The first segment of qualifying got underway in front of the packed, passionate grandstand. Fernando completed one run to ease through to Q2 in twelfth position while Esteban improved on a second lap to pass through in seventh.


Both drivers had executed one run before a red flag was dropped for an incident involving the Williams (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/11/williams) of George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/70634/drivers/66/george-russell). Esteban was slightly quicker with a 1min 09.919secs, enough for eighth position, and Fernando ninth with a 1min 10.020secs. Luck smiled on the pair as the session was aborted shortly after it resumed and they progressed to Q3 on the times set on the first run.


Q3 started with some delay, however, after an initial run, Esteban and Fernando headed out on new Soft tyres to secure the fourth double top ten start for Alpine F1 Team since the start of the season.


Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon): "I think it's been a good qualifying for us today. I felt good out there, with the car performing at its best and I think we maximised everything we had in hand today. We had some improvements to make after FP3 and we worked very hard in the break to do so. We would like to be further up the grid, of course, but we have the race tomorrow to push on and aim to score points. As a team, having both cars in the top ten is a decent result. The atmosphere out there was amazing, and the fans have been really special all weekend. I could hear the cheering on the straight, which was cool and hopefully we can look forward to putting on a show tomorrow."


Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso): "Overall it was a good day for us as both cars made it into Q3. We managed to save one set of tyres in Q1 but because of the red flag in Q2 our brave move didn't pay off as others regained the ground. Then in Q3 it was very close between a number of cars. We will try to do some overtakes at the start and see where we end up after the first few laps. After that, I think it's going to be difficult to overtake. It will be a challenge for us but we're looking forward to it."


Davide Brivio, Racing Director: "A positive day for us, with both cars through into Q3. It was a difficult session to manage with the red flags, but the team did very well in the situation. We were quite pleased with the performance today overall, even though Esteban struggled a little bit in the morning. Everyone did a good job to put him into Q3, and also on Fernando's side. Tomorrow we know it won't be easy to gain positions, but anything can happen, especially with safety cars or red flags as we have already seen on several occasions this weekend. We are in a good position so we will try our best to make the most of any opportunity."

Dutch GP: Qualifying team notes - Ferrari Scuderia Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) delivered a good team result in qualifying for the Dutch Grand Prix, at the end of a day that was far from easy. Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc) and Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz) will start alongside one another on the third row, the team having to work very hard for this result, given that after having completed just five laps in this morning's third free practice session, Carlos ended up in the barriers, damaging his SF21.


The car was only brought back to the garage twenty minutes after the end of the session and the mechanics immediately set about making repairs, succeeding in getting the Spaniard back out on track with just over 10 minutes of Q1 remaining. Sainz was immediately able to run at the same pace as his team-mate and both he and Leclerc made it through to the final part.


In the session to decide the top ten, Charles was unable to match the 1'09"4 he did in Q2 and had to settle for fifth place with a 1'09"527, although the potential had been there to line up the SF21 on the second row. Carlos was sixth fastest in 1'09"537, ensuring that both of them would start ahead of their closest championship rivals. Behind them came the Scuderia's official reserve driver, Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi). In his Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari)-powered Alfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo) Racing, he qualified seventh, his best showing of the season and a great result for the Italian.


The 72 lap Grand Prix gets underway at 3pm when the start will be a key moment, given that overtaking is, to say the least, difficult. At the same time, it will be important to manage the tyres and any unpredictable situations that might arise on such an interesting and tricky track as Zandvoort.


Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc): It's a shame to have missed out on fourth place today, but in the end, a fifth and sixth on the grid is a solid Saturday for us. We were probably a bit too aggressive on the front wing set-up on the last run and I lost the rear in the middle sector.
For the race, tyre degradation is still something of a question mark. We didn't do a lot of long-run simulations in free practice, so we will manage that the best we can tomorrow. The most important thing will be to have a good start because overtaking will be difficult here.


Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz): It was one of the most challenging qualifying sessions of the season and for sure the most stressful! I can only say a massive thank you to the mechanics.


After the incident in FP3, the car only came back to the garage over 20 minutes after the session, so it was extremely tight on timing to check it and fix everything, and again the entire team did an incredible job. Watching them all over the car was impressive!

After all that tension, once I knew we were going out, I really focused on resetting my mind and trying to build up my pace lap after lap. We managed to recover well and had a good quali in a tricky and very tight session. I think overtaking will not be easy tomorrow, but we have a good opportunity to bring home good points from our starting position.


Laurent Mekies, Racing Director: First of all, I want to congratulate our mechanics for managing to repair Carlos' car in time for him to take part in qualifying. It was by no means a given and they really did a great job. Having both drivers on the third row is a good team result. Going into this race, we had said we wanted to get back to fighting for these places in qualifying and we have achieved our first objective of the weekend. Carlos did very well to immediately get a feel for the car after he had gone off the track.

It was a shame Charles didn't manage to get the place on the second row that was within his grasp, especially when you look at the fantastic lap he did in Q2. But it means he can do it again tomorrow! Now we are focussing on the race, which will be very tough. On a track where overtaking is complicated, the start will be even more crucial than usual. Furthermore, we will have to do a good job of making the most of any opportunity that comes our way on a track that does not forgive the slightest mistake.




https://www.pitpass.com/70640/Dutch-GP-Qualifying-team-notes-Ferrari



Dutch GP: Qualifying team notes - AlphaTauri Pierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly): "I'm extremely happy getting P4 in Quali today, as it hasn't been that easy up until this point here, we've struggled a bit and lacked some pace in practice. We managed to find some extra time and put a really strong lap together when it counted and it's great to be able to say we will start tomorrow's race from the second row. We knew how important Quali was on this track, as it's going to be quite tricky to overtake during the race, and we were able to do a very good job today. The team gave me a great car and starting tomorrow in such a strong position, I'll give it all to bring home a good result."


Yuki Tsunoda (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/71/yuki-tsunoda): "I'm pleased with the progress I've made this weekend, I've been building up the lap steadily and this approach has worked really well for me. This is a really fun track to drive and I really enjoyed the Qualifying session, I was feeling confident in the car and it was good to make it through to Q2. It's unfortunate that there was no opportunity to put a lap altogether in the end with my new tyre, due to the red flag, but it is what it is. The pace is definitely there, I think it might've been possible to make it through to Q3, so there are mixed feelings about this afternoon, but overall I am happy with how today went from my side."


Claudio Balestri (Chief Engineer - Vehicle Performance): "After Friday's session we were not fully satisfied and we knew that we could still improve our package. For this reason, we decided to change the setup of the cars overnight, trying to work on the tyres and the overall performance, especially in the corners where we were struggling. After the morning session we made further little changes and it paid off, we matched our best Qualifying of the season with Pierre, with a very competitive P4. Yuki was doing well, but he was unlucky in Q2, due to the red flag he didn't get to use the new tyres, so couldn't complete a final push lap. Now we are looking forward to tomorrow's race, we believe it will be difficult to overtake, meaning the starting position on the grid is very important."



https://www.pitpass.com/70641/Dutch-GP-Qualifying-team-notes-AlphaTauri



Dutch GP: Qualifying team notes - Alfa Romeo Alfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo) Racing ORLEN delivered the best qualifying result of the year on a thrilling day in Zandvoort, with Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi) qualifying in P7 for tomorrow's Dutch Grand Prix. Robert Kubica (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/63/robert-kubica), drafted in to replace Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen), overcame the difficulties of his late call-up to qualify in 18th place.


From shock to elation, today was one of those days. The news of Kimi's positive test rocked the team, but the spirit that was shown afterwards was a true credit to everyone at Alfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo) Racing ORLEN. Robert Kubica (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/63/robert-kubica), who just hours before had not expected to be in the car, was able to tackle a track on which he hadn't raced in more than 17 years, using a truncated FP3 session to acquaint himself with the circuit and qualifying a solid 18th, with less than an hour's experience here under his belt.


The performance of the day, however, was on Antonio's side of the garage. A stunning lap in Q1 produced fourth place, a sign of things to come. Antonio looked strong all afternoon, and even when a technical issue to a wheelnut seemed to derail his session, the team pulled through. The mechanics produced a monumental effort, fixing the car in time for Q3 - and then Antonio delivered when he had to.


P7 on the grid is the best result of the year, an equals Antonio's own career best. A strong response after a difficult day to show the spirit of this team. Race day, tomorrow, is when points are given out, and we'll need to be on form then as well. We'll be ready as we've been ready to tackle today.


Frederic Vasseur, Team Principal: "Our best qualifying performance of the year comes at the end of a rollercoaster of a day here in Zandvoort. Of course, the morning started with the news about Kimi, but I was proud of the way the team responded.

Robert was able to get up to speed quickly, despite this being a challenging track on which he had no recent experience, and then Antonio produced a really good performance to qualify seventh. The team really pulled together in a difficult moment to show its spirit: now we need to convert today's result into points."


Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi): "Today's result feels really good, and I need to give big thanks to the team. We had a technical issue to a wheelnut between Q2 and Q3, but the crew did an amazing job: they did everything they could and they were able to put me back on track. Then I had to really push hard as I wanted to repay them for their work: the lap in Q3 was mega. We will start from a good position in tomorrow's race, we need to continue pushing, stay out of trouble and use this opportunity to bring home a good result."


Robert Kubica (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/63/robert-kubica): "My job as a reserve driver is to be ready to stand in, but you never wish for the need to arise. I hope Kimi gets better soon. Considering the short notice and the little practice I had, I think today went ok. This is quite a demanding track, one I had to learn almost from scratch, and practice went quite quickly, but I think I maximised the time I had today. Unfortunately, on the final outlap in Q1 I was affected by the traffic and couldn't get the tyres in the right window, and that ruined my lap. Tomorrow will be a long race, let's see what we can do."



https://www.pitpass.com/70643/Dutch-GP-Qualifying-team-notes-Alfa-Romeo



Dutch GP: Qualifying team notes - Haas Uralkali Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team drivers Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher) and Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin) qualified 19th and 20th, respectively, for Sunday's Dutch Grand Prix, Round 13 of the 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship at Circuit Zandvoort.


Schumacher and Mazepin exited the three-stage knockout qualifying after the opening Q1 session. Running the Pirelli P Zero Red soft tires exclusively, both drivers were first out the gates with Schumacher setting a lap of 1:12.281 and Mazepin a 1:12.274. With a second set of softs bolted on lap times dropped, Schumacher clocking a best tour of 1:11.387 with Mazepin logging a 1:11.875. That was as good as it got for the Uralkali Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team duo - Schumacher and Mazepin ended the day locking out the rear of the grid having failed to go faster on a third and final set of soft tires.


Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Racing's Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) delighted his home crowd securing pole position in Q3 - the seventh pole of 2021 for the Dutch title-contender. Verstappen's best lap of 1:08.885 beat Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton) of Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) by .038 of a second.


Nikita Mazepain: "It's really difficult here with 20 cars on track. There was so much going on and that last corner is so tight with the gravel, so I tried to get on the power, but I was too late. The track improves all the time and for the last attempt I didn't have the opportunity - it was one of those qualifying sessions."


Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher): "We'll have to go through and see what happened today. The biggest challenge is to find track position as the track is so short and if you have the right position, it makes a massive difference. We're both now in a situation which isn't great, and the last corner wasn't easy. We had high hopes for a better lap but it wasn't meant to be, but we'll be strong again. We'll try to do our best in the race tomorrow."


Guenther Steiner: "FP3 was a very standard FP3 for us, all went well. We did our laps and we got the experience. Qualifying was a bit more exciting for us, with the cars getting to the end of the lap and getting close to each other. In the end, we were trying to do the best we could, and it didn't work out. It is what it is - and tomorrow is the race."

Dutch GP: Qualifying team notes - Williams George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/70637/drivers/66/george-russell) qualified 11th and Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi) 14th for tomorrow's Dutch Grand Prix at Zandvoort. Both drivers successfully progressed to Q2 using the soft Pirelli tyre.
Unfortunately, both drivers' sessions came to a premature end with George finding the barriers on his final effort in Q2 as he looked set to improve on his previous best effort of a 1:10.332.


After the session restarted, Nicholas was also aiming to improve on his previous effort of a 1:11.161 but crashed hard at turn eight, bringing out the second red flag of qualifying.


Dave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance: We have obviously sustained some damage to both cars following Q2 and we need to assess that tonight. George's car doesn't look too bad, but the damage on Nicholas's is more extensive. It is unfortunate that neither car was able to set a representative laptime in Q2 as we were building up good momentum, which started in FP3. The car was better today than it had been yesterday, and we chose run plans in qualifying that allowed the drivers to maximise the tyre preparation. Unfortunately, George made a very rare mistake near the end of a lap that was looking good enough for Q3. Nicholas too was performing very well, had an excellent Q1 and was pushing George very hard until he just lost the car when passing the Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes), which was on an out-lap.


We have a bit of work to do tonight but should still start the race in a strong position. Given how tricky this circuit is and how penalising the smallest of mistakes can be, we are looking forward to a good race and will be looking for both drivers to make progress.


George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/70637/drivers/66/george-russell): Unfortunately, I made a mistake on my final run. I was pushing to my maximum and I was on a really good lap but the rear tyres were right on the limit. I just attacked the final corner too hard and lost the rear of the car, as I knew it would be tight for getting into Q3. We picked up a little bit of damage on the rear suspension but thankfully the gearbox is fine, and it's nothing that the guys and girls won't be able to fix overnight. At that point, the lap would have been good enough to promote me into the top-10 so apologies to the team as that is not how I wanted to finish my qualifying session. It's a circuit that everyone is really going to struggle to overtake at and nobody knows how the tyres are going to react, so it will be interesting to see how the race pans out tomorrow.


Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi): Having seen the replay of my incident in Q2, I think I slightly misjudged the turning point and caught the grass. It's such a high-speed corner that you can't really recover from that. We were compromised a bit with the first red flag, but even on used tyres I could see that I was improving my time and so I was pushing hard. It was a big impact, but these cars are very safe and I feel fine. There was a quite a lot of damage caused, so apologies to the guys and girls who will be working hard to fix that for tomorrow.



https://www.pitpass.com/70637/Dutch-GP-Qualifying-team-notes-Williams
Dutch GP: Qualifying team notes - Pirelli Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull)'s Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) became the first Dutchman to claim pole for the Dutch Grand Prix, completing his fastest lap on the P Zero Red soft C3 tyres at the very end of the Q3 session. Verstappen was also fastest in free practice this morning, ahead of both Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) as he was in qualifying, again on the soft tyres.


All the drivers used the soft from start to finish of the qualifying session, with the exception of both Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) drivers, who ran the P Zero Yellow medium C2 tyres to set their best times in Q1 (having one less set of soft tyres after FP3). Consequently all the top 10 on the grid will start on the soft tyre tomorrow.


The Q2 session was interrupted by two red flags, which brought it to a premature end, for two separate incidents involving both Williams (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/11/williams) drivers, causing a delay of about half an hour.


Conditions were warm and dry throughout qualifying, with 23 degrees ambient and 34 degrees on track halfway through the session. However, there was some wind that affected the aerodynamics and gave the drivers an extra challenge.


Possible Race Strategies
The 72-lap Dutch Grand Prix is quite a step into the unknown for everyone, but on paper a two-stopper and one-stopper seem quite closely matched - although this obviously depends on a number of different variables such as track temperature as well as tyre degradation.


In practice, the teams will always gravitate towards a one-stopper as the default option if they can: especially as the tight and twisty confines of Zandvoort seem to make it quite hard to overtake. The optimal one-stop strategy consists of an opening stint on either the P Zero Yellow medium C2 or the P Zero Red soft C3, followed by a longer final stint on the P Zero White hard C1. Soft to medium seems a bit marginal, considering the expected wear and degradation rates.


However, there are a few question marks that could bring a two-stopper into play as well: especially if it's hot or if degradation is higher than expected on the soft tyre in particular.


The number of stoppages seen so far also suggest that a safety car period or even a red flag could be possible during the race, which would alter the complexion of the planned strategy entirely.


Mario Isola: "It was a bit of a stop-start qualifying session, in keeping with what we have seen during most of the sessions here so far, with two red flags in Q2 and a few surprises throughout. There was plenty of track evolution seen in qualifying, with the fastest times coming right at the end of each session - so this had a clear impact on the qualifying strategy, with teams trying to set their times as late as possible. In terms of race strategy, everything is still somewhat open, with both a two-stopper and one-stopper possible. However, the teams will want to focus on a one-stopper if they can, which is achievable using either the medium or the soft tyre to start, followed by a final stint on the hard. Without a lot of prior information to fall back on, there's also scope for drivers to gamble on doing something different - which might just pay off."

Goval, sigo con mi empanada mental. He bajado la clasi porque no he podido verla en directo, total que la pongo en el pendrive, me preparo un refresco, me acomodo y me pongo a verla y digo "joder, otra vez con lluvia, no fastidies". Eso ha sido unos minutos hasta que me ha dado cuenta de que habia copiado en el pen la clasi de Spa que aun tenia en el disco duro :roto2:

La clasi "la de verdad", muy buena. No sé que tipo de carrera proporcionará el circuito pero es espectacular. Cada vez que ponian un onboard con alguien llegando a la mitica curva hiper-peraltada del S1 y se pasaba algo de frenada, me cagaba da miedo, asi de claro. Y la curva final de entrada a la recta de meta, 3/4 de lo mismo, acojonante.

Y, bueno, ver el circuito a tope, que decir, una pasada.


:elrisas: :elrisas: Es que te gustó tanto la calificación de SPA que tu subconsciente quería volver a verla. :cunaooooo:

Me temo que la carrera no va a ser tan emocionante como la quali por lo complicado que es adelantar, aunque el factor «si te sales, lo pagas» igual nos da algo de emoción. Ojalá me tenga que tragar mis palabras y veamos un carrerón.

FORMULA 1 HEINEKEN DUTCH GRAND PRIX 2021 - Zandvoort
Resultados CARRERA
Domingo, 5 de septiembre de 2021




Max VERSTAPPEN logra la victoria en casa, en el mítico circuito de Zandvoort.

No ha sido una carrera espectacular en cuanto adelantamientos pero sí interesante a nivel estratégico, que era la mejor manera de adelantar.

Una gran salida de Max ha dejado a HAMILTON sin posibilidad de adelantarle en el inicio de la carrera. Después, aunque en Mercedes decidieron probar suerte con una estrategia a dos paradas, el de Red Bull siempre contestó bien, sin errores y controlando siempre la carrera.

Con BOTTAS decidieron ir a una parada para que cuando Verstappen llegara hasta él, pudiera hacerle perder tiempo para que Hamilton tuviera alguna oportunidad de adelantarle en pista pero la diferencia de neumáticos ayudó a que el holandés recuperara rápido la primera posición.

Al final volvieron a parar a Bottas para que montara blandos y quedara listo para lograr la vuelta rápida, que en ese momento tenía Hamilton, en el caso de que la marcara Verstappen y Hamilton no la recuperara. A Bottas le pidieron por radio que no tenía que ir a por la VR pero se puso a apretar, marcando el mejor tiempo en el primer y segundo sector. Le pidieron por radio que abortara la vuelta y, aunque él dice que levantó para no quitársela a Hamilton, sí lo hizo, obligando a Lewis a hacer una nueva parada para llevarse en la última vuelta ese punto extra de la VR.

Ha sido muy emocionante ver cómo se peleaban entre ellos. :elrisas: :elrisas:

Ellos tres fueron los únicos pilotos que completaron las 72 vueltas. El resto de pilotos fueron doblados.

Buen fin de semana de Pierre GASLY, que ha terminado en la 4ª posición. Tras él ha finalizado LECLERC que tuvo mejor ritmo que Sainz toda la carrera.

Fernando ALONSO fue el que mejor salió. Se la jugó a ir por la parte superior de la T3 y logró adelantar dos posiciones, la de Ocon y la de Giovinazzi. En el inicio de carrera Ocon dijo por radio que era más rápido que Fernando esperando que este le dejara pasar. Fernando ha comentado que su plan era adelantar a cuantos pudiera en la salida y luego conservar neumáticos durante las primeras 15 vueltas aunque formase un trenecito, para luego apretar hasta el final de la vida de los neumáticos. Que su carrera no era contra los Ferrari pero en la parte final se encontró con Sainz sufriendo con los duros porque cuando estos se desgastan, es como ir sobre hielo y deslizan mucho.

SAINZ ha tenido una carrera relativamente tranquila. Ha comentado que no ha tenido ritmo en ningún momento y que no pudo aguantar detrás a Fernando en la parte final de la carrera.

Al que sí pudo aguantar fue a Checo PÉREZ, que tras salir desde el pit lane ha terminado 8º. Esta remontada enmascara un mal fin de semana en el que ha estado siempre demasiado lejos de su compañero. En el inicio de la carrera se desesperó al no poder adelantar a Mazepin y dañó el neumático delantero derecho en una pasada de frenada que le obligó ha cambiar los neumáticos antes de lo previsto (fue el único que había comenzado con duros) y hacer una parada extra. Checo tiene que ponerse las pilas para clasificar más arriba. Hacer grandes remontadas no ayuda al equipo. Lo necesitan para poder vencer a Mercedes tanto en el campeonato de constructores como en el de pilotos.

Las dos últimas posiciones de puntos fueron para OCON y para NORRIS que ha sido el piloto que más ha tardado en hacer su parada y ha logrado volver a quedar por delante de RICCIARDO, que ha terminado 11º, a pesar de haber salido tres posiciones por detrás.

Bien KUBICA, que ha logrado terminar la carrera justo por detrás de GIOVINAZZI, que vuelve a demostrar bajón en carrera después de hacer una buena calificación.

Me ha encantado ver a los F1 aquí. Puede que sea una carrera procesión, pero es un circuito que debe de durar en el calendario, siempre que eso no le obligue a cambios que le roben su encanto.

Ha tenido su encanto pese a lo que comentas, yo creo que se mantendrá en el calendario. La vi repetida y reconozco que en muchas partes tiré del fast forward, la carrera tuvo sus momentos, sobretodo a nivel de estrategia, la remontada de Perez, la gran carrera de Alonso, detalles aqui y allá...

Creo que el protagonismo absoluto, al margen de la espectacularidad del circuito, fué el tremendisimo ambiente. Envidia sana.

Impresiones de los equipos después de la carrera:



Dutch GP: Race team notes - Mercedes The race took place in front of packed grandstands and a sea of orange, with an incredible atmosphere at Zandvoort. Lewis finished the race in second place, after a hard-fought strategic battle with Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) at the front of the field. Valtteri crossed the line in third place, to make it a double podium finish for the team.


The gap between Max and Lewis fluctuated throughout the race, with the team attempting the undercut twice, but it wasn't enough to get Lewis ahead. Lewis was on a two-stop strategy but pitted for a third time to get the fastest lap, while we tried a one-stop with Valtteri but pitted with five laps to go as a precaution.


Today's result marked Lewis' 175th career podium and Valtteri's 125th points finish in F1. Max (224.5 points) leads the Drivers' Championship by three points from Lewis (221.5 points) with Valtteri (123 points) in P3. Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) (344.5 points) lead Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) (332.5 points) by 12 points in the Constructors' Championship.


Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton): What a race and what a crowd, honestly, it's been an amazing weekend. Max did a great job so congrats to him. I gave it everything I had out there, but they were just too quick for us this weekend. I think even if we'd have got everything right today with the traffic, the pit stops and the strategy, it'd still have been tough to get by them. We didn't get those elements spot on, but either way, we pushed as much as we could and we'll take it offline, debrief and see how we could have improved. We'll be fighting right to the end. It was an incredibly difficult race out there, physically and mentally I think it was one of the toughest, but it's an amazing track.

The fastest lap at the end was one of my favourite parts of the race, it's an incredible track to drive on low fuel, this is one of my favourite tracks now and I've had a great time here in Holland, so I'm looking forward to coming back next year.


Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas): It was quite a quiet race for me but as a team, we scored solid points and there's been an amazing atmosphere here. Before the race, there was so much energy from the crowd, and it's a really cool track to drive. Very hard to overtake on, but good fun. I was pushing hard out there but we committed to the one-stop strategy quite early on, and that needed too much management really and proved tricky. It definitely wasn't as fast as the two-stop. We ended up stopping late in the race for safety as we had the gap behind, and I was starting to get some tyre vibrations. We were lacking a bit of speed here compared to Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) but Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza) is a completely different circuit so I'm hopeful we can compete there.


Toto Wolff: Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) were faultless out there today so congrats to them and Max on the victory. Whatever we tried on the strategy, it was going to be difficult to compete with them. We tried everything we could, attempted the undercut a few times with Lewis and he was pushing to the maximum, but it wasn't enough. For Valtteri, we put him on the one-stop but towards the end, he was struggling with the tyres, so we stopped him as a precaution as he was getting some vibrations. P2 and P3 is a solid result and good points for us, so now we look to Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza). I'm sure it's going to be another close weekend and an exciting fight. It's a very different track and the Sprint Qualifying format returns, so we could see a bit of a different story. Let's see how it goes.


Andrew Shovlin: Our car wasn't quite quick enough today and we ended up in a situation where we had to push in dirty air to keep up and it was just taking too much out of the tyres. The pace at the front was very quick and the degradation was moving it towards a two stop. We lost a little time on the first stop with Lewis going onto Medium and while Max could cover, our pace seemed a bit better on that tyre and we could close and follow more easily. We didn't have many options by the final stop, we decided to go relatively early, perhaps optimistically hoping they would take a Soft to cover us but they fitted the Hard and it was working well for them so that was that. Valtteri had a straightforward race although perhaps not as exciting as he'd hoped. He managed the one stop well but with a clear window behind, we made a precautionary stop at the end. Overall a solid weekend for him and nice to see him move back into third in the Drivers' championship. With Lewis we managed to grab the extra point for fastest lap, which was a bit of damage limitation, but we didn't have the best car here and need to address that for Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza) if we're looking to take back the lead of the Drivers' championship.

Dutch GP: Race team notes - Red Bull Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen): "It's incredible to win here today on another home track and it feels great to take the lead in the Driver's Championship again. Of course the expectations were very high coming into the weekend and it's never easy to fulfil that but the whole crowd has been incredible and I am so happy to win here. It was quite a tough race, Lewis was really putting the pressure on and both Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes)' had really good pace but we managed to have that three second buffer when we needed it and I think that was very important. We can be really pleased with the whole Team performance; we made the right calls and we managed the race really well. 72 laps around this track is cool, especially in front of all these fans, they were incredible throughout the whole race, I've never experienced anything like this before in my life. I will of course celebrate at home this evening, but Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza) is just around the corner and the championship fight is tight, so I want to make sure we perform at our best."


Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez): "I gave it my all, every overtake was on the limit and I had to take a lot of risks. Today was all about damage limitation as I started from the pits after taking the penalty for the engine change. It was a bit of a shame at the end when Lando and I touched, I had a lot of damage on the right-hand side of the car. I think it was a racing indecent as I wasn't given enough space and I don't think he could see me. Since that point I lost a lot of grip, otherwise, I definitely think P6 was on the cards today. I really wish I could have given more to the Dutch fans, they have been incredible all weekend. From now on it's just about looking ahead and trying to come back strong in Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza)."


Christian Horner, Team Principal: "It was an impeccable race for the Team today.

There's a fantastic atmosphere here and I've never seen a reaction like that in my whole career, the fans in Holland are incredible. It was important for Max to get a clean start, his ability to judge and read the grip level is very strong. We knew with the strategic options that Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) had that they were going to split the strategy and they did exactly that. It was also crucial for Max to make that pass on Valtteri quickly and then after that, we were able to cover Lewis. The Team did everything they could today to make sure Max had a smooth race and he did everything that he needed. Sergio won driver of the day and he has driven a great race. Not only did he take the penalty, he had a huge flat spot and we had to pit him for safety reasons, so he was in an even more difficult position then. He made great progress through the field, scoring important points for us and improving his confidence after a really tough Saturday.

Looking ahead, Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza) and Sochi (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/24/sochi) are tracks that Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) have a stronghold, we'd expect them to have the upper hand, therefore the next two races are about trying to limit the damage and making sure we extract as much as we can out of the cars. It's going to be really close and this championship looks like it's going to go all the way to Abu Dhabi."

Dutch GP: Race team notes - McLaren Lando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris): "A bit of a mixed result today. Disappointing because it's P10, but good because I didn't think we could've done a lot more from thirteenth. It's such a difficult track to overtake on, but we had good pace, we had a good strategy and I think we have to be happy with one point. I think that's the best we could've done today. Maybe if we'd started in a better position and did a better job yesterday, we could've achieved a little bit more - so we need to look at how we can learn from it. Still, I'm satisfied, and we'll use it to make sure we bounce back and are much stronger in Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza)."


Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo): "Difficult race. Coming up to the line, I went to pull the clutch and it wasn't working, so my preferred clutch paddle had an issue. I did the start with my other hand and that was a big part of losing a position to Russell off the line. But we recovered well and I got back past Russell and Giovinazzi. We actually gained a position on lap one when I thought we were going to lose a few, so that was great. We were then just stuck behind the Alpines. They were saving the tyres and I was just trying to stay with them. Once they opened it up, I didn't have their pace.


"We put the Hard tyre on and were trying to get into a bit of a rhythm. We also tried to execute a team strategy to maximise points, which cost me some race time. It was hard to get going after that and I think ultimately the pace wasn't that good. We did struggle a bit, for different reasons, in the first and second stint. We were P10 at one point today, but it was hard to see how we could've been much higher than that. I'd have obviously loved to score points, but we'll analyse it and learn from it. Next up, Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza)! Give me some pizza!"


Andreas Seidl, Team Principal: "That was a lot of hard work for one point. It was the race we were expecting, given our starting positions and the way we've been struggling for pace this weekend. We gave it our best and didn't leave anything on the table, with the drivers and their crews working very well together to see if we could extract more. In the end, we had to accept there wasn't anything else available. Thanks to Daniel for playing the team game today to try to maximise our points, but unfortunately it didn't pay off this time. Thanks, in fact, to the whole team at the track and back at the factory, plus our colleagues from HPP, for their hard work.


"From a wider perspective, the returning Dutch Grand Prix was a sensational show, with the Dutch fans in the grandstands making it very special. I'm sure it's a highlight for everyone here at the track - but now we have to regroup and reset very quickly, with the aim of striking back in Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza) in just a few days' time."

Dutch GP: Race team notes - Ferrari Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc) and Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz) finished the Dutch Grand Prix at Zandvoort in fifth and seventh places respectively.


There were no particularly dramatic moments in the race and so, for a long time, the Scuderia Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) drivers ran in their grid positions of fifth and sixth. It was only in the final stages that Carlos had to give best to Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso) who was on softer compound tyres and had better pace. The points haul of 16 is nevertheless a good one, given that the team's closest rival only picked up a single point. The Scuderia has therefore moved back up to third place in the constructors' classification. This coming Friday, the cars will already be back on track for the next round at Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza).


Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc): I'm pretty happy with our overall performance of this weekend. Finishing with both cars in the points today is a good result.
The start was good, but then I didn't want to take too many risks. I think the main surprise for everyone was how long the Mediums could last. Still, I think that the Soft-Hard combination was the right choice for us. We were very close in pace to the car ahead, but it was just not enough today.
The atmosphere was amazing, and it was really great to see so many people cheering in the grandstands. I can't wait to see the same, just in red, in Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza) next week.


Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz): Overall it's been a positive weekend for the team, although it hasn't been the best for me, despite the good recovery from yesterday. My race today was very far from what I was looking for. I could not match the pace I had on Friday, as I completely lost the good feeling I'd had with the car up until then. I just couldn't find the right balance, sliding too much and I had a lot of degradation. I was planning to attack and fight for positions, but I ended up having to defend. We need to analyse what happened today and move on. On the positive side, we scored some good points for the team, which puts us in a stronger position in the Constructors'.


Now I am looking forward to Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza). It will be my first Italian GP as a Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) driver and I am sure it'll be a weekend I will remember forever.


Mattia Binotto, Team Principal: A solid race from the whole team, which allowed us to bring home a significant points haul for the Constructors' classification. We knew that, on a track that is very demanding in terms of tyre management, we could have found ourselves in a situation similar to the one we experienced at the French Grand Prix, but the team and drivers have worked a lot on this aspect and the results of our efforts were clear to see.


Of course, it's not a result to get really excited about and we are perfectly aware that there is still a lot to do to get back to the same level as those currently fighting for the wins.


Now our focus shifts immediately to the next race at Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza).After a great show from the Dutch fans this weekend, we can't wait to be racing in front of our own tifosi and we hope we can give them something to smile about.


https://www.pitpass.com/70662/Dutch-GP-Race-team-notes-Ferrari


Dutch GP: Race team notes - Alpine Alpine F1 Team put in a double points finish in an incredible, atmospheric Heineken Dutch Grand Prix. Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso) finished in sixth position following a breath-taking overtake on Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz) on the penultimate lap, while Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon) passed the flag in ninth.


The race got underway in hot, sunny conditions with Fernando getting a flying start to pass Esteban and Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi) around the top of the banking through Turn 3. The Alpine pair then held station until their sole pit stop, taken on consecutive laps, swapping the Soft Pirelli compound for the Medium.


Fernando and Esteban subsequently managed their tyres and pace to stay comfortably within the top ten. Esteban lost one position to a charging Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez), who had started down the field, and finished in ninth, his fourth consecutive points-scoring finish. Fernando closed the gap to the Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) of Sainz to a wafer-thin margin before sealing the deal with a bold pass in the closing stages of the race.


Alpine F1 Team remains in fifth position in the Constructors' Championship and now heads to Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza) aiming to extend its points run even further.


Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon): "It was an eventful race at the wheel, and I'm pleased to score points today. The start was pretty busy, but I enjoyed the battles out there. On our side, we probably had the pace to be a position or two higher, but we weren't so lucky with some situations like blue flags at crucial times. As a team, though, we've shown good pace all weekend and we can be pleased with that. It's important points for the Constructors' Championship and we move onto Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza) aiming for a repeat of the same. We were competitive there last year, and the target is to continue the points run."


Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso): "It was a good weekend for us. We take some good points with sixth position and I thought we were generally competitive all weekend. Our start was good, but it was very close into turn one and two and I had to run wide to avoid hitting the cars around me. We then settled into a good rhythm and executed a solid race. Overtaking Carlos [Sainz] at the end felt fantastic, as early in the race I didn't think we could catch the Ferraris. It'll be interesting to see if we can carry our form into Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza). Spa in the dry was the first time we ran with a very low downforce, so let's see if we can have another good weekend there."


Marcin Budkowski, Executive Director: "In the end it was a pretty exciting race at a circuit where we were expecting it to be difficult to overtake. Both drivers had decent starts, although had a bit of a coming together on the first lap. Fortunately, nothing came out of it and we managed to get past Giovinazzi quickly and put ourselves in a position to manage our tyres to execute a one stop, which we did well. The second part of the race was quite a lot of action and fighting. Esteban lost a position to Checo [Perez] who was on Soft tyres and in a quicker car. Fernando had a beautiful fight with Carlos [Sainz] to get sixth. It's good points in the championship for the team however a strong performance from Pierre [Gasly] and Alpha Tauri means they knock two points off us for fifth position in the Constructors' Championship. The fight will continue in Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza). Congratulations to Max for his win at home in front of an incredible crowd - it's been an exceptional atmosphere all weekend, one we haven't seen for a very long time."

Dutch GP: Race team notes - Aston Martin Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll): "We can see from the race just how important qualifying is and unfortunately we were compromised yesterday, so we had it all to do today. I made an OK start off the line, but I was not able to make up any places. After that, I could only really follow George [Russell] for the majority of the race in a train of cars. Without a significant tyre delta, it is almost impossible to overtake here. We will look into the strategy to see what else we could have done, but I do not think we could have done a lot differently. Zandvoort is a great track to drive and it is definitely more of a Saturday circuit. I am happy to see it on the calendar, but perhaps there are ways to look into improving overtaking on a Sunday. For now, we will reset and focus on Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza)."


Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel): "It was one of those days which shows that if you start further back it is really hard to recover, especially on a track where overtaking is so tricky. I had to take a lot of risks when overtaking, but if you qualify out of position it is difficult to come back. When I did have some clean air, in the final part of the race, the pace was very competitive and I found a good rhythm. From where we started, we had to try to do something different with the strategy and I was happy with our approach."


Otmar Szafnauer, CEO & Team Principal: "On a circuit on which overtaking is extremely difficult, we were unable to make much progress today with either Lance's one-stop strategy or Sebastian's two-stopper. Nonetheless, they both drove well in difficult circumstances. The first Formula One Dutch Grand Prix for 36 years was well organised and efficiently run, and, although there was not a lot of on-track action in terms of overtaking, an excited full-house audience was rewarded with victory for the local hero. Next weekend we will be at Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza), a very different kind of challenge, and a welcome opportunity for us to try to improve on today's performance."


https://www.pitpass.com/70651/Dutch-GP-Race-team-notes-Aston-Martin


Dutch GP: Race team notes - AlphaTauri Pierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly): "P4 is an amazing result today, I don't think we could really hope for much better and it's 12 important points for us. I really enjoyed all 72 laps here in Zandvoort, it's a fantastic track. I had fun today, I'm really pleased with everything, the car is really fast and I managed to get it set-up just the way I wanted. The team did a fantastic job throughout the weekend and today we were flying! I'm obviously very excited to get back to Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza) after last year and obviously the expectations are very high. We've clearly maximised our package this weekend, so it'll be interesting to see how it performs next weekend in Italy."


Yuki Tsunoda (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/71/yuki-tsunoda): "Today's result is disappointing of course, we saw an issue on the PU data and unfortunately had to retire the car. Up until that point the race was going quite well and the pace of the car was there, but it was hard to overtake. I've got to look forward to Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza) now, I have some experience on that circuit which is good. I'm going to take the same approach as this week, slowly building up the pace and hopefully we can put it all together next week."


Franz Tost (Team Principal): "Firstly, big congratulations to the organisers of this event. It was fantastic to see the fans in the grandstands and their celebrations across the entire weekend, starting from Friday. Likewise, congrats to Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen), Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Racing and Honda, they've dominated this Grand Prix.


From our side, we're also quite satisfied because Pierre did a fantastic job this weekend. The team managed to give him a strong car, even yesterday for Qualifying where he secured P4. He then managed to keep this position all the way to the chequered flag in today's race. It was a very good job by Pierre, so a huge well done to both him and the whole team for this great result. As for Yuki, his car suffered a technical failure on the drivetrain during the race and we had to retire the car. We need to go away and investigate the cause of this issue. We are now looking forward to Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza), after this fantastic event here in Zandvoort."

Dutch GP: Race team notes - Alfa Romeo Alfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo) Racing ORLEN had a spirited but eventually unlucky day in Zandvoort as Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi) and Robert Kubica (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/63/robert-kubica) finished in 14th and 15th in the 2021 Dutch Grand Prix. It was a result borne not out of lack of trying, as both Antonio and Robert fought from lights to flag, but of circumstances and episodes that didn't play in the team's favour.


On the back of a very positive performance on Saturday - actually the team's best ever qualifying in the hybrid era, with the lead car just 1.02% off the pole - Antonio started in P7 and kept his place in turn one. Unfortunate contacts with Sainz and Alonso in the opening stages resulted in the Alfa driver dropping a few places, but he settled down well into P10 for his first stint. Robert, drafted in just before FP3 to replace Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen), had a clean start and held position well, engaging in some nice battles, first with Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel) and then with Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi), in the course of the race.


Antonio, who ran in the points until his pitstop, saw his race unravel only six laps after his visit to the pits, when a puncture forced him to an early second change of tyres. Rejoining near the back, he was able to make up some places, eventually finishing 14th - one place ahead of team-mate Robert, who made a good pass on Latifi on the final lap to seal the place.


On an emotional weekend for the team, we responded with a spirited performance, with lots of heart. Luck was not on our side, but the way the team got together to counter adversity, with highs such as Antonio's qualifying performance and Robert's gutsy race, are an encouragement for the remainder of the season.


Frederic Vasseur, Team Principal: "It was a day in which luck was not on our side, with a potential good result lost to an unfortunate series of circumstances. Coming on the back of our best qualifying performance since 2014, we were confident we could have a good race. Sadly, Antonio suffered a contact in the opening stages and lost a few positions as a result. His race was further compromised when he had a puncture just a few laps after his pit stop and had to return for a fresh set of tyres: after that, he was good to recover a few places but the top ten remained out of reach. Robert had a good race, with some entertaining battles and his final lap pass on Latifi was a nice way to bring the race to a close. We finish 14th and 15th on a weekend where we would have deserved more."


Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi): "It was a good start from a good position, but already in the first lap I had contact with Fernando and dropped some places. We were still in the top ten and looking solid, but then a puncture compromised our race. It had been a really good weekend until then but that bad luck during the race means we didn't score any points. Now we focus fully on Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza), my home race: I'm looking forward to giving a good show to all the Tifosi."


Robert Kubica (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/63/robert-kubica): "I am quite happy with my race, even if it was not easy to step in on one of the toughest, most physical tracks. Last time I did a full race distance was nearly two years ago in Abu Dhabi, but in the end it was a good race and I even had some fun battles. Everyone probably expected a chaotic race, with yellow flags, safety cars, but none of this happened: I still managed to have a good fight with Sebastian [Vettel] and then catch Latifi and pass him in the final lap, which was fun. Considering the amount of preparation I had, I am very pleased with how the race went and I am ready if the team needs me again."

Dutch GP: Race team notes - Haas Uralkali Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team driver Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher) finished 18th while Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin) was forced into retirement at Sunday's Dutch Grand Prix, Round 13 of the 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship, at Circuit Zandvoort.


Schumacher started from 17th place on Pirelli P Zero Red soft tires but had to cede track position early on after sustaining damage to his front wing. Schumacher came in on lap 4 of 72 for repairs, taking on White hard tires, and then made a second stop on lap 32 for Yellow medium tires. Schumacher stayed out of trouble thereafter to classify 18th and in the process maintain his perfect finishing record since graduating to Formula 1.


Mazepin took the start from 18th place on Yellow medium tires and gained a couple of spots, running 16th, prior to moving on to hard tires. Unfortunately Mazepin's VF-21 suffered a hydraulic issue and he was brought to the pits to retire the car on lap 43.
Up front Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Racing's Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) delivered for the home spectators - the Dutch racer claiming his seventh win of the season ahead of the Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) pairing of Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton) and Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas).


Uralkali Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team will return to action at the Italian Grand Prix - the third and final race of the current triple-header hosted at Autodromo Nazionale Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza) from September 10 to 12.


Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin): "I'm upset on having to retire the car as my job is to drive and I've not driven enough over the last few race weekends. Luckily, I don't feel at fault for this, so that's one thing to put in the back of your mind. I was having a good race, I was having a lot of fun - I had a very good opening lap, and I was then trying to manage what we had. Unfortunately, the hydraulic issue meant we needed to manage things, turn down the engine - which meant Robert Kubica (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/63/robert-kubica) got by us. As a precaution then we had to stop and retire the car. I was giving it my best and I just want to get the best result for the team. It just wasn't meant to be today."


Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher): "Tough - it could've been better. It seemed there was an issue with the front wing - I'm not quite sure what it was - but I was losing a lot of front end, so I came in to change it. The hard tire didn't really run how I wanted it to, so we had to pit a bit early onto the medium and that worked a lot better, so from that perspective we can be quite happy. I'm definitely looking forward to coming back here next year."


Guenther Steiner: "Obviously it was unfortunate that Nikita's car had to stop with a hydraulic issue so he couldn't get to the end. I think once both of our cars got into the running it was respectable what was done. Obviously, we had the contact between the two of them at the beginning of the race. We all sat down afterwards, and my aim now is to work on it and we'll sort these problems out for the future."


https://www.pitpass.com/70653/Dutch-GP-Race-team-notes-Haas


Dutch GP: Race team notes - Williams Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi) finished 16th in the Dutch Grand Prix, whilst George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/70656/drivers/66/george-russell) was forced to retire the car due to a suspected gearbox issue. George started 11th and Nicholas from the pit lane, both on the medium Pirelli tyre.


Nicholas ran a one stop-race, switching to the hard compound on lap 23. George made one planned stop on lap 27, also for the hard tyre, before retiring the car on lap 70.


Dave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance: Although the result today was a little frustrating, the pace of the car this week has been good and the way we approached the event at a new circuit was effective and enjoyable.


George got a good start today but couldn't capitalise fully due to the Alpine cars ahead fighting with each other. He was able to hold his position throughout the opening stint before getting ahead of Giovinazzi when he had to stop again. The McLarens pulled off a good team manoeuvre on us, which allowed Norris to get ahead and at that point we were destined to finish 12th on the track, ahead of both Aston Martins. However, a five second penalty for a pit lane speeding offence and then a gearbox issue, which we need to investigate, meant that we finished 18th.


Nicholas started the race from the pit lane following his heavy crash yesterday and a change to a different front wing. His pace was strong, but he was able to make some overtakes and looked like he would finish quite close to George. Towards the end of the race his pace dropped off as he lost tyre temperature when letting the leaders through and this made the last few laps very difficult.


It has been a great experience to visit Zandvoort and to see the passion and energy of the local fans. We are pleased with how we tackled the weekend and with the overall pace of the FW43B at this circuit.


Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza) marks the end of this triple-header run of races and of course presents a very different challenge to Zandvoort, both in terms of the circuit layout and the event format. We are very keen to get back out on the track and put the FW43B through its paces at this iconic track.


George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/70656/drivers/66/george-russell): Our race was respectable. The first stint was good, keeping up with Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi) and the McLarens ahead. When I pitted, I pushed it to the maximum on the pit entry. It's a really tricky entry here and I overdid it slightly unfortunately. The five second time penalty didn't really compromise our race though and we would have come home either 12th or 13th if we hadn't had to retire the car with a gearbox issue a few laps from the end. I am already looking forward to next weekend in Italy; Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza) is a completely different track to here where we run almost minimum downforce compared to Zandvoort which is almost maximum downforce. We also have the sprint race too which will offer opportunities.


Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi): As we expected, Zandvoort was a tricky circuit for racing and there weren't many opportunities to pass other cars out there. It was never going to be easy starting from the pit lane, and it took Sergio (Perez) and I about two laps to catch back up with the pack. The first stint was good; I managed to pass both Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) cars and I was happy with our pace. We did a long stint on the hard tyres though, so managing those became challenging towards the end of the race and I was losing temperature due to the blue flags, so it was a bit of a struggle today.


https://www.pitpass.com/70656/Dutch-GP-Race-team-notes-Williams


Dutch GP: Race team notes - Pirelli Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull)'s Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) won his home grand prix with a two-stopper using all three compounds perfectly: starting on the P Zero Red soft C3, before moving onto the P Zero Yellow medium C2, and finishing on the P Zero White hard C1.


Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) driver Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton), who finished second, opted for a different strategy: starting on the soft and then running two stints on the medium. He added an unscheduled third stop right at the end of the race for softs, to claim the fastest lap championship point.


The top five finished in the order in which they started on the grid. However, there were five different strategies in the top six, demonstrating the different tactical approaches that many teams took to the race.


Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) driver Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez) was the only driver to start on the hard compound, from the pit lane. He went from hard to medium to soft, finishing eighth and being voted as driver of the day.


There was a mixture of one and two-stoppers during the race, with seven drivers stopping twice and the rest stopping once. Hamilton was the only driver to stop three times.


Today was a bit warmer than previous days, with track temperatures that peaked at 32 degrees.


Mario Isola: "All three compounds that we nominated for the race played a prominent role, underlining how there was a big variety of successful strategies today on this brand new and very exciting circuit, with the drivers pushing to the maximum all the way to the end. Along with the warmer weather today compared to previous days, this meant that there were plenty of demands placed on the tyres - so it was the right decision to come here with the three hardest tyres in the range. Wear was higher than predicted due to a lack of long runs before the race, while degradation was in line with expectations. Prior to the final stops for the soft from Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) at the end of the race, a used medium tyre showed its capability to set the fastest lap. Congratulations to Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) and Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) for an extremely popular home victory."
