Formula 1 Dutch Grand Prix – How to watch, start time & more

Red Bull's Max Verstappen starts his home event from pole position after edging Mercedes rival Lewis Hamilton by just 0.038s in Saturday's qualifying. 

But Red Bull faces a potential headache as Sergio Perez is due to start in 16th place after getting eliminated in Q1.

With Valtteri Bottas right behind his teammate Hamilton in third, Mercedes has more strategic options in hand to topple Verstappen.
