Verstappen beats the rain for record-equalling ninth win in a row

Max Verstappen celebrated his ninth successive victory at the Dutch Grand Prix, equaling Sebastian Vettel’s 2013 record streak. This win also marked Red Bull’s 14th consecutive triumph and 13th of the season. The race was filled with chaos due to the changing weather conditions, with a dry period followed by a torrential downpour that caused a 40-minute delay. Fernando Alonso finished in second place, bringing Aston Martin back to the podium, while Pierre Gasly secured third place for Renault-owned Alpine. Verstappen now leads Sergio Perez by 138 points in the Formula One standings. Verstappen expressed his pride and gratitude for the support of his fans and the incredible atmosphere at the race. This victory brings Verstappen closer to clinching his third title well before the end of the season. Other notable finishes include Carlos Sainz in fifth place, Lewis Hamilton in sixth, and Lando Norris in seventh. Alex Albon collected points for Williams in eighth place, and Liam Lawson impressed on his Formula One debut, finishing 13th. Verstappen led cleanly from the start, with Alonso securing third place. The race strategies were disrupted by the rain, with Perez making an early pit stop for intermediates. Verstappen made a comeback after his pit stop and eventually took the lead when Perez pitted. The changing weather conditions caused havoc for other drivers, including George Russell, who retired after a clash with Norris. The race was also interrupted by a safety car period due to a crash by Logan Sargeant. Verstappen seemed to be on his way to victory until heavy rain led to a red flag and the race was halted. Verstappen’s win solidifies his position as the Formula One leader and brings him closer to securing the championship.
