Dutch Grand Prix 2023 – Lando Norris could steal some thunder at Zandvoort

Dutch Grand Prix 2023 – Sunday from 2:00pm

F1 wakes from its summer break with Max Verstappen looking to triumph again at his home Grand Prix. Verstappen is the big favourite to win at Zandvoort, with very skinny odds, so we need to look elsewhere for a bit of value.

Norris to get back on podium

McLaren had been going great guns until their surge came to a crunching halt at the Belgian Grand Prix before the summer break kicked in.

The wet weather completely negated their extreme rear wing set-up. If it stays dry, a less power-sensitive track like Zandvoort should play into the team’s hands and this is where Lando Norris can steal a march on his rivals.

The 23-year-old recorded back-to-back podium finishes for the first time in his F1 career before finishing seventh in Belgian. But we have faith he’ll quickly return to form. It was just one below-par race.

Plenty of finishers

Formula 1 car reliability is improving by the year. The 2023 season has been an excellent showcase of the incredible engineering on display up and down the F1 paddock.

Only two races have seen three or more DNFs in the 12 races so far this season. We have already had another two races where the entire field has been able to record a classified result.

The 2021 and 2022 editions of the Dutch Grand Prix had plenty of finishers and we are at the point of the season now where most reliability kinks would have been ironed out by now.

If we avoid a troublesome start this bet has a strong chance of landing.

Dutch Grand Prix 2023: Verdict

All eyes are usually on the excellent in Fernando Alonso in the Aston Martin, but his teammate, and the owner’s son, Lance Stroll is quietly going about his business playing second fiddle.

Many believe Stroll has a seat for life when his father is the big cheese, but Aston Martin investors will not be happy if both cars are not reaching their full potential regardless of daddy’s power.

Stroll is by no means a bad driver, but Alonso is so good it’s a hard job trying to keep up. With the two-time World Champion stealing the limelight, Stroll is still quietly picking up points with five top 10 finishes in his last six races.

And we believe he’s a good enough price to make it six from seven.
