We know that Dutch fans will party rain or shine, and the Dutch Grand Prix served as conclusive proof of that. The clouds kept unleashing and retreating but the music stayed blaring and the dance moves kept coming.
Fernando also scored a stunning podium, braving those torrential downpours to secure his 105th F1 podium and the team's seventh of the season. With that came celebrations from our team and fans, who just couldn't resist chanting Fernando's name.
Scroll down for more on those celebrations plus more from the past week including dancing marshals at Zandvoort, a homemade AMR23 and a closer look at the Aston Martin Vantage F1® Edition.
1 | Up close
His first podium at the historic Dutch circuit and one delivered in treacherous conditions.
Fernando's beaming smile is clear to see in this TikTok that takes you into the heart of the post-race celebrations.
Watch the video below to immerse yourself and feel the passion flowing through the team after Sunday's race.

How does it feel to be Fernando and grasp the unique Dutch Grand Prix trophy outside the AMF1 Team garage? Scroll down and watch this TikTok to find out.
Of course, if you want more from inside the mind of a double World Champion you can also listen to Fernando speaking on the High Performance Podcast.
3 | DIY
We are all united by our passion for F1 and I / AM provides a platform for you to bring your thing and show your support for the team. Your unique fandom is something to be celebrated and that includes building a homemade AMR23.
We love the detail on this model, and its lack of polygons only adds to the charm. Adorned with partner logos on the front and the side, the DRS is open, and the driver is all smiles.
4 | Practice makes perfect
The lucky admin of the @f1dutchgp got to see pitstop practice from a coveted viewpoint this weekend.
It starts with some reflex training with tennis balls and then our team goes into the pitstop practice itself, where the wonderful sound of wheelguns fills the air.
Crank the volume up for those sweet sounds.
5 | Ohhh Fernando Alonso...
We know the Dutch crowd have their home hero but it seems that the fans at Zandvoort also have a soft spot for Fernando.
Just watch as Fernando takes part in the post-race interview and almost gets drowned out by fans chanting his name as loud as they can.
One of the most memorable scenes of the weekend.
6 & 7 | Marshal moves
There were a few red flags and stoppages this weekend given the tough conditions, but the fans partied their way through it all.
However, we couldn't race without the hard work of the marshals, who volunteer to keep the fans and drivers safe in all conditions.
With the music blaring throughout the weekend, it seemed that the orange-clad marshals couldn't resist a dance either.
More marshal antics here as these two give it all to perform the 'YMCA' in the rain.
8 | Vantage point
Finally, here's a close-up look at the Aston Martin Vantage F1® Edition, the most powerful V8 Vantage ever, which takes aero and chassis learnings from the development of the Vantage F1® Safety Car and delivers them to the road.
Tune in and turn up the volume to hear the sounds of the Vantage F1® Edition, and spot the little details including the exclusive badging on the door sill and the satisfying sound of that Alcantara steering wheel.
Next up is the 2023 Italian Grand Prix, where you can shape the story by posting your TikToks with #AstonMartinF1. Follow @AstonMartinF1 and share your videos on TikTok throughout the season.
