The second half of the 2022 F1 season gets underway with what could be a pivotal race in the battle for the driver's championship this weekend at Circuit Zandvoort for the Dutch Grand Prix. Read on to discover all your F1 Dutch Grand Prix 2022 live stream options, including FREE options.
Home turf hero Max Verstappen will have the full backing of the Orange Army , with the Red Bull star leading the F1 World Driver's Championship by a seemingly unassailable 93 points.
Verstappen arrives in the Netherlands having won last weekend's Belgian GP by over 17 seconds, despite starting in 14th position on the grid.
Another win for the 24-year-old would all but end any hope of his rivals catching him, but this circuit on paper appears to suit Ferrari rather than Red Bull, and may give hope to Sergio Perez pf keeping his fading title dream alive.

How to use a VPN to unblock any restrictions
If you're outside of your preferred broadcaster's boundaries, you can use a VPN to unblock any geo-restrictions and live stream the F1 Dutch Grand Prix as if you were right at home. Here's our step-by-step guide on how to do just that.
- VPN - standing for virtual private network - offers security and anomality as you browse online, using set protocols to encrypt your data and make it unreadable to outsiders.
- As a part of that, you can also switch your IP address, which identifies your location.
- Most VPNs offer a list of locations where its servers are based to join. Connecting to them switches your IP to appear as if you're browsing from that country/city. In turn, you can then access content locked to that country.
- When it comes to finding a VPN, you should make sure you find the best one that's suitable for your chosen device, with VPN providers offering compatibility for a ton of devices, including VPN for Mac, and even a range of fairly nifty free VPNs.
- Once you've made the decision for the most suitable VPN for your device and your means for using a VPN, sign-up and install it.
- To live stream the F1 Dutch Grand Prix, all you need to do is select a UK server from its list of available servers and connect. You'll then be able to hop over those geo-restrictions with the likes of Sky Sports or Sling TV opening its online gates to you.
- We also want to ensure your money is well spent, so we would recommend going for a VPN that offers a risk free trial. ExpressVPN is one of many providers that has a 30-day money back guarantee.
