MAX VERSTAPPEN is the odds-on favourite to win the world championship AGAIN after the F1 title race swung in his favour after his memorable win in Holland.
Verstappen stormed to victory in front of his home crowd at the first dutch Grand Prix in 36 years to regain the lead of the Championship.
Lewis Hamilton finished second as he trails Verstappen by three points in this extraordinary title race.
Hamilton confessed 'there was not a lot he could do' as Verstappen's Red Bull was roared home by 70,000 Dutch fans.
Verstappen is now 8/13 favourite to win with William Hill as the bookies struggle to split the title protagonists.
Hamilton is a slightly larger price at 5/4 as he eyes his record-breaking eighth title.

Red Bull team boss Christian Horner senses the title fight will go down to the wire and believes the next two races at Monza and Sotchi will suit Mercedes.
He said: “Their car and engine package has always traditionally been very strong at those two venues.
“They’ve been weaker venues for us.
“I expect them to have the advantage at the next two, but thereafter, it should be nip-and-tuck, I would certainly hope.
"So the next two weekends for us are about trying to limit the damage as much as we can and extract from the car as much as we can."
