F1 Dutch GP predictions and betting tips

Back to action after the summer break, F1 visits Circuit Zandvoort in the Netherlands this weekend. Here are our top Dutch GP predictions, with the best odds available for the weekend.

F1 Dutch GP top betting predictions

F1 heads over to the iconic Zandvoort circuit in the Netherlands, the home race for championship leader Max Verstappen. The Dutchman is the two-time defending race winner, and remains undefeated in his home race since the Dutch GP’s return to F1 in 2021. A three-peat would also put Verstappen at nine consecutive wins in 2023, tying Sebastian Vettel’s 10-year record.

Yuki Tsunoda points finish @ 9/4 (3.25)

While AlphaTauri drew the spotlight on Friday following Daniel Ricciardo’s crash, Yuki Tsunoda quietly settled inside the top 5. That came after an already solid ninth place in FP1. And there is reason to believe that Tsunoda’s pace isn’t just for show.

The Japanese driver also had the fifth-best average on the long runs, which just solidifies his spot in the fight for the top 10. Considering that Tsunoda has shown some promising pace over a single lap and in the long runs, he could be in a prime position to secure another finish in the points. He will be carrying AlphaTauri’s hopes with Ricciardo sidelined. On a funny side note, his new teammate for the weekend, 21-year old Kiwi Liam Lawson, is in a close fight for the Super Formula title in Japan against Tsunoda’s longtime karting and F4 rival Ritomo Miyata.

Williams double points finish @ 7/1 (8.00)

For starters, this is admitedly a very risky bet, and the odds show as much. But Williams could be looking at its best weekend in a long time. Williams’ most recent double points finish came at the controversial Belgian Grand Prix in 2021, with George Russell finishing second and Nicholas Latifi ninth. The team’s last double points finish over a full distance race came at the chaotic Hungarian Grand Prix that same year, with Latifi leading Russell home in seventh and eighth, respectively.

Alexander Albon finished fifth in FP1 and third in FP2. But while Albon’s pace is already tried and trusted, his rookie teammate Logan Sargeant carries a question mark. The former FIA F3 title contender and F2 race winner has struggled in F1, but his Dutch GP free practice results offer some encouragement. Sargeant was seventh in FP1 and 12th in FP2. What really matters, however, is his long run pace: Sargeant was fighting tooth and nail against other cars in the top 5. If he qualifies well, Williams’ strong straightline speed could work to the team’s favor around a track where overtakes are extremely difficult. There is a real chance of a double top 10 for the Grove-based operation.

F1 Dutch GP weather condition

While there is a 40% chance of rain this weekend, the showers are only expected early in the morning. Forecast for the qualifying and the Grand Prix has clear skies, with temperature in the 18°C.
