    The 2023 Formula 1 season will resume on Sunday after the month-long summer break with the 2023 Dutch Grand Prix at Circuit Zandvoort in Zandvoort, Netherlands. The green flag is scheduled to drop at 9 a.m. ET. Red Bull Racing's Max Verstappen won for the eighth time in a row late last month and he'll be pursuing a ninth consecutive victory in front of his home fans in Holland while Red Bull Racing will be looking to extend its record winning streak to 14. Verstappen has won the last two Dutch Grand Prix and could also become just the fourth Formula 1 driver in history to become a three-time winner of the race.

    Verstappen listed as the -400 favorite (risk $400 to win $100) in the 2023 Dutch Grand Prix odds while his Red Bull teammate Sergio Perez is listed at +900. They're followed Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton (+1400), McLaren's Lando Norris (+2000) and Ferrari's Charles Leclerc (+2000). SportsLine's proven computer projection model simulated the Dutch GP 2023 10,000 times and come up with a surprising leaderboard.

    Developed by daily Fantasy pro and SportsLine predictive data engineer Mike McClure, this proprietary Formula 1 prediction model takes into account a slew of factors including track history and recent results.

    The model has been scorching hot when it comes to picking Formula 1 race events dating back to 2021. It nailed both of Leclerc's wins in 2022, and at the 2021 Mexican Grand Prix, the model was strongly backing Verstappen as its top pick. The result: Verstappen dominated the field and ran away with a surprising victory. 

    It followed that up by calling Verstappen's win at the Rolex Emilia Romagna GP in April and nailed Verstappen to win in Belgium, the Netherlands, Japan, the United States, Mexico and Abu Dhabi. It also called all nine of Verstappen's wins to start the 2023 season. Anyone who followed the model's lead on those plays has seen HUGE returns!

    The Dutch Grand Prix first became an official Formula One event in 1952 and the race was held annually all but four years from then until 1985. However, the race went on hiatus in 1986 and didn't return until 2021. Verstappen has given the Dutch fans a triumphant return to the sport, winning both the races held on his home soil the last two seasons. Circuit Zandvoort is a 14-turn, 2.646-mile track and Hamilton holds the race lap record with a 1:11.097 in 2021.

    Now, the model has dialed in on the 2023 Formula 1 Dutch Grand Prix and just released its coveted picks and leaderboard projections. 

    We can tell you the model is fading Norris even though he is tied for fourth favorite with Leclerc. After finishing outside the points four times in the first seven races of the season, Norris and McLaren have finally turned things around with four consecutive finishes in the points including runner-up finishes in Great Britain and Hungary. 

    However, he did take a step back with a seventh-place finish in Belgium before the break and he's been 10th and seventh in two career Dutch Grand Prix starts. Teams can certainly make significant jumps coming off the break with a month to work on the cars but the model hasn't seen enough to justify Norris' status as one of the favorites and predicts he finishes outside the top five.

    The model is also targeting one driver getting triple-digit Dutch Grand Prix odds to make a serious charge up the leaderboard! Anyone who backs this driver could hit it BIG. You ABSOLUTELY need to see who he is before locking in any Formula 1 Hungarian GP picks of your own.

    So who wins the 2023 Formula 1 Dutch Grand Prix? And which SERIOUS long shot might be in contention? ... Join SportsLine right now to see the full projected F1 Dutch GP leaderboard, all from the model that has nailed its racing picks the last two years, and find out!
