This is how the F1 World Cup classification remains after the Dutch GP: Alonso, blow to Hamilton


Fernando Alonso arrived at the Dutch GP just one point ahead of Lewis Hamilton. The Spaniard came from 4 races without a podium and with an Aston Martin was overtaken in the development race by Mercedes and McLaren, and a bit by Ferrari. The situation is complicated and Aston Martin presented a package of evolutions at Zandvoort that should put Fernando back in the fight for podiums or, at least, should give him better weapons to fight the chaser group against these rivals. And in the Netherlands, the improvements worked and Fernando took advantage of them, shining his own light in a very complicated event due to the rain. Fernando was 2nd and added some very valuable points, in addition to an extra point for the fastest lap, to get wind of Lewis Hamilton.

The hit points are important to F1 World Championship standings after the Dutch GP. Fernando struck out 11 on one walk, helped by a Carlos Sainz which was too big in the last few laps to defend against British attacks, which was 6th in a weekend marked by poor British classification.

Exactly, Carlos Sainz, who has a very difficult car to drive and doesn’t seem likely to make it into the Top-5, he nailed it to finish 5th at Zandvoort. This, along with the problems of Russell, who left the Netherlands without points, and the disastrous weekend that Leclerc had, which he abandoned, returning Carlos Sainz to 5th position in the Drivers’ Championship. The Spaniard arrived at Zandvoort 7 points behind both in 7th place in the World Cup and today He will arrive at Monza in 5th position with a 3-point margin over his teammate Leclerc and the Mercedes driver, George Russell, in the standings after the GP at Zandvoort.

Verstappen, who achieved his 9th win in a row, is now 138 points clear of his team-mate Pérez, who is 4th at Red Bull. Max is now more than 5 races away from the Mexican and heading for the title unopposed. Meanwhile, Pérez has just a 33-point margin over Fernando Alonso, who is still third.
