Having finished second to Charles Leclerc at Austria (Red Bull's home track) but winning at his birth country's track at Belgium,
Max Verstappen looks to grab another victory at a "home" track in 2022 as Formula 1 returns to Circuit Zandvoort for the Dutch Grand Prix
To say that the atmosphere will be "carnival like" will be an understatement.
Expect the Dutch driver's Orange Army to be out in force and providing the defending series champion with a tremendous amount of positive energy,
not that he may need any of those good vibrations considering his master-class performance at Spa-Francorchamps.
There is a feeling that if Verstappen were to put on another performance such as the one at Spa,
his momentum may become unstoppable. Certainly there are plenty of races left on the calendar — nine, to be exact,
if we include Zandvoort on Sunday — but there was something that was demoralizing in the way Verstappen,
and Red Bull Racing went about business at the Belgium Grand Prix -- and the way the rest of the field did not.
As a famous sports philosopher once said, "it ain't over 'til it's over." But one gets the feeling that "over" is just around the corner, and coming up fast.
