The biggest news going into this weekend’s race is that Red Bull have swapped Verstappen with Kvyat, moving the Toro Rosso driver to Red Bull. Verstappen will be one to watch this weekend, as he settles into a new team. With a 43 point deficit to Rosberg, Hamilton also needs a brilliant weekend – a long way back due to reliability issues.
Hamilton takes pole for the third time this season, beating his teammate Rosberg by over two tenths of a second. Verstappen impressed in his first qualifying for Red Bull, taking fourth place, 4 tenths off Ricciardo. Ferrari had a fairly disappointing session, with their drivers ending 5th and 6th on the grid for tomorrow.
Max Verstappen becomes the youngest F1 race winner after Hamilton and Rosberg collide on lap one. A faultless race for Verstappen, on his Red Bull debut, means he becomes the first ever Dutch race winner. He drove fantastically to keep the Ferrari of Raikkonen behind in his last stint – which lasted over 30 laps.
