It’s race week again! The 2023 Formula 1 season returns after the summer break with a trip to Zandvoort for the Dutch Grand Prix. Will Max Verstappen match Sebastian Vettel’s record of nine consecutive wins in front of his home fans? What other history can he and Red Bull still create this season?

Tom Clarkson is joined by 1996 World Champion, Damon Hill, and former McLaren driver and current Aston Martin Team Ambassador, Pedro de la Rosa, to discuss Max’s homecoming and which drivers have a point to prove in the second half of the season.

Plus, Damon and Pedro explain how they individually “revolutionised” pit stops in Ask The Nation.
