Double Mercedes. In the first practice, Russell was the fastest. Verstappen was betrayed by technology – F1sport.cz

Formula 1 moved from Belgium to the Netherlands. Zandvoort underwent modifications before returning to the calendar last year, but retained, for example, numerous gravel zones. During the first practice session, we saw several trips off the track – among others by Haas drivers or Pérez.

After ten minutes, the yellow flags had to be displayed, which were replaced by a virtual safety car and then red flags. Max Verstappen retired his car – apparently due to gearbox problems. He did not return to the track until the end of training.

George Russell set the fastest time ahead of his teammate Lewis Hamilton and Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz.

12:35 p.m: Alonso was in the lead for a while, he is the only one driving in the middle. Others have hard tires. Alonso is overtaken by Norris.

12:30 p.m.: We begin..

12:28 p.m.: Track temperature 30 °C, air 22 °C.

12:24 p.m.: F1 returned to Zandvoort last year. This year, however, two novelties await the riders. The first is the second DRS zone, which starts before the last sharp corner. The second is “false gravel” in the 12th turn.

This is gravel that has been coated with a resin type material. This keeps the surface firm and no or very little gravel gets onto the track. The experimental strip is one meter wide from the curb and is visually identifiable as it is significantly darker than the actual gravel that follows it. The belt provides less grip.
