Race Analysis – A Different League

Red Bull Honda driver Max Verstappen was in a different league to his competitors on his way to winning his home Dutch Grand Prix. “He was a rocket off the start,” Hamilton said of Verstappen. Hamilton came in at the end of lap 20 to switch to Pirelli’s medium compound tires. He pitted at the end of lap 31 for the medium compound tires. Hamilton made his second stop at the end of lap 39, and Red Bull countered with Verstappen a lap later. “I’m not going to make it to the end on these tires,” Hamilton radioed a few laps later. At the end of lap 70 of 72 Hamilton pitted for the softs. “They were just too fast,” Hamilton said of Verstappen and Red Bull.
