Max Verstappen has taken the Formula-One championship lead from Lewis Hamilton with victory in front of his passionate home Zandvoort support.

Verstappen sent his home crowd wild by winning his home Dutch GP from Hamilton to regain the world title lead from his Mercedes rival.

He led from the front and did not put a wheel wrong in the first home race of his career despite coming under pressure from Hamilton at different points of the Zandvoort race, played out in front of astonishingly vocal and colourful local support in the orange-clad grandstands.

Hamilton's three-point advantage at the start of the day now turns into a three-point deficit heading to next week's Italian GP at Monza, the second of the season's sprint race weekends.

ValtteriBottas finished a distant third in the second Mercedes.
