Max Verstappen and Red Bull successfully repelled a dual-pronged attack from Mercedes to win the Dutch Grand Prix through a combination of pace, strategy and execution.

Despite the high frequency of incidents around the tricky, remodelled Zandvoort circuit, the race was not plagued by accidents and Safety Car interventions as many in the paddock had anticipated. Instead, the race that unfolded was a straight shoot-out between Verstappen in front and his championship rival Lewis Hamilton pursuing him.

Hamilton remained within four seconds of his adversary for the vast majority of the 72 laps of the race, even getting as close as just over a second of the Red Bull after the pair made their first pit stops – far earlier than the rest of the field.

With their first attempt at an undercut having failed to get Hamilton ahead of Verstappen, Mercedes took an aggressive approach with Valtteri Bottas’ strategy in an attempt to make the most of their extra car advantage.

Keeping Bottas out on his soft tyres for a further 10 laps not only allowed Mercedes to explore a one-stop strategy with their second car, but provided an opportunity for him to hold up the Red Bull around the narrow, winding corners, back Verstappen into Hamilton and open up a potential passing opportunity.

With the benefit of their new medium tyres, Verstappen and Hamilton both began taking over a second a lap out of Bottas ahead. But as soon as Verstappen got to within a second of Bottas at the start of lap 29, Hamilton’s hopes of using his team mate to catch the Red Bull were dashed. George Russell – who is widely expected to be confirmed in the near future as his next team mate – exited the pit lane right in front of him, forcing him to back out on the approach to turn two and costing him a full second.

Verstappen, with such a performance advantage over Bottas at this stage of the race, simply bided his time over the rest of the lap and was well within the slipstream of the Mercedes by the time he reached the DRS activation point. There was little Bottas to do to prevent Verstappen from cruising by and back into the lead once more.

Having been unsuccessful in their first attempt, Mercedes opted for a second attempt at undercutting Verstappen at the end of lap 39, bringing Hamilton in for a second set of mediums. Again, Red Bull immediately responded – only this time, Verstappen emerged ahead of both Hamilton and Bottas, who had fallen to over 25 seconds behind the leader after his extended first stint, and having briefly lost time when Sebastian Vettel spun in front of him on lap 37.

Despite his protestations over his tyres being unable to last to the end of the race, Hamilton continued to remain close enough to Verstappen to keep the thousands of Dutch fans lining the circuit from being too comfortable. Aided by the pace advantage of the medium tyres compared to the hard-shod Red Bull, Hamilton sat within two seconds of the leader for several laps before the gap eventually fell to around four seconds.

As the laps counted down and it became clear that Verstappen was firmly in control of the race, Mercedes used the enormous gap they held over Pierre Gasly in fourth to orchestrate a late switch to softs to secure the bonus point for fastest lap.

As Verstappen claimed a popular home victory, Christian Horner pointed to his driver’s ability to dispatch Bottas at the first opportunity following his first stop as the winning move of the race.

“The crucial part of the race for Max – because the two-stop was the faster race – was to make sure that we re-passed Valtteri immediately,” said Horner.

“And he did that. That then opened up opportunities to make the second half of the race much more manageable, whereas if he’d have spent a lot of laps behind Valtteri, that could’ve opened us up to an undercut.”

While Red Bull were successful in keeping Mercedes at bay this time around, they are likely to increasingly rely on Sergio Perez to ensure that Verstappen is not left to fend for himself too often over the crucial races to come in the season.
