F1 Roundtable: Dutch Grand Prix (Zandvoort) Predictions


LWOS’ new Formula 1 predictions series continues with our team’s takes on what will happen at this weekend’s Dutch Grand Prix.

Last week, half of the participating staff (including myself!) correctly predicted that Max Verstappen would triumph in Belgium, with the title leader storming to a quite memorable win from 14th place.

Whilst two of the team correctly predicted Sergio Perez would make the rostrum, as well as one predicting Carlos Sainz also would nobody predicted the two together. Gabe, however, won the “surprise result” segment, correctly predicting Alex Albon would finish in the points. The Thai driver produced an incredible performance over the whole race weekend, starting the race 6th and finishing 10th.

Here are the team’s predictions for this weekend’s Dutch Grand Prix:

Race Winner

  • Arturo – Sergio Perez
  • Evan – Charles Leclerc
  • Gabe – Charles Leclerc
  • Jack – Max Verstappen
  • Justin – Max Verstappen
  • Nathan – Max Verstappen
  • Yara – Max Verstappen
  • Ed – Carlos Sainz

The Podium

  • Arturo – Verstappen & Leclerc
  • Evan – Sainz & Verstappen
  • Gabe – Verstappen & Russell
  • Jack – Hamilton & Leclerc
  • Justin – Leclerc & Russell
  • Nathan – Hamilton & Leclerc
  • Yara – Perez & Russell
  • Ed – Verstappen & Leclerc

Surprise Result

  • Arturo – Daniel Ricciardo top 5 finish
  • Evan – No Ferrari strategy mistakes
  • Gabe – Both Haas cars in the points
  • Jack – Mick Schumacher top 6 finish
  • Justin – Sergio Perez DNF
  • Nathan – First Alfa Romeo points finish in 6 rounds
  • Yara – Double Ferrari DNF
  • Ed – Mercedes drivers to take each other out on lap 1

The consensus is that either a Ferrari or Red Bull driver will win the Dutch Grand Prix. Will we see a Haas resurgence on a short, fast circuit as we saw in Austria, or will Lewis Hamilton and George Russell collide on the opening lap?
