The Formula 1 season returns for more drama at the Dutch Grand Prix on Sunday 27 August.
F1’s summer break is almost over: the 10-race run-in to the end of the season begins in the Netherlands and historic Zandvoort on August 25-27.
After factory closures and holidays, the season will continue with the chasing pack aiming to change a narrative that has seen Red Bull win every race so far – and runaway title leader Max Verstappen in the last eight.
Verstappen’s quest for a record equaling nine laps brought him back to his homeland and a race in front of his ‘Orange Army’, who made the venue through dunes on the coast of the North Sea one of the most noisy and atmospheric in the sport since Zandvoort returns to F1 for the first time in three decades in 2021.
The penultimate European round of the season sees familiar start times for UK audiences live on Sky Sports F1:
- Qualifying on August 26 starts at 2pm, with build-up from 1.15pm
- The race starts at 2pm on August 27, with the build-up from 12.30pm
While Verstappen, also eyeing a hat-trick of home wins, will inevitably start as favourite, the pre-summer break battle behind the Dutchman continues to be unpredictable.
