Another week and another Formula 1 Race is in the books and we are here to talk about the results of the race that happened yesterday and let me tell you that it was one of the most chaotic races we have seen in recent times. One moment one driver was winning and then the next moment another driver was in pole position and for 72 Laps this went on and all the Dutch fans had come to see their hero Max Verstappen win and whether he was able to do that or not we will see below in the results.
Before we get into the results I have to say that writing about every Formula 1 Race result is a new learning experience for me because this is a sport that has come recently in my top viewing list and I am loving every second of it. This season is not as great as the last season because one driver has gone so far ahead of all the others. Let’s get to the race results for the Dutch Grand Prix.
