After Max Verstappen dominated at Spa, he heads to his home race, the Dutch Grand Prix, with Ferrari at his mercy.
Spa was Formula 1’s first stop after the summer holidays, and also the first outing with the new FIA technical directive in force, dealing with planks and skids under the cars in a bid to reduce the impact of the porpoising.
At this stage, the impact of this TD is unclear, but Verstappen’s total domination of the Belgian Grand Prix was a very worrying sign for Ferrari.
Verstappen outqualified the leading Ferrari by more than six tenths, and despite falling to 14th on the grid with a penalty, he still won the race just under 18 seconds ahead of teammate Sergio Perez. .
Now 98 points clear of Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc, Verstappen would surely end Scuderia’s title hopes once and for all if he displayed similar dominance at home.

Where is the 2022 Dutch Grand Prix taking place?
Zandvoort has returned to the Formula 1 calendar for 2021 – but not the Zandvoort we all remember.
For years Dutch fans have been bringing a festive atmosphere to Formula 1 to support their guy Max Verstappen, and finally they have a home race again.
The Netherlands has 17.5 million inhabitants and the municipality of Zandvoort is one of the main seaside resorts in the country. It has approximately 17,000 inhabitants.
Before its return to Formula 1, the Zandvoort circuit underwent a major transformation. The most significant of these changes being the introduction of two banked corners.
The now 4.252km long track introduced the incline at the iconic Hugenholtzbocht bend, while Arie Luyendijkbocht, the final corner of the lap, features a 19 degree incline, making it twice as steep as the incline seen in Indianapolis.
The circuit has 13 corners, and the company in charge of redesigning the track, Dromo Circuit Design, said it wanted to emulate Eau Rouge and Raidillon at Spa, and the fast sweep of Maggots and Becketts at Silverstone.
