‘Most beautiful’ athlete spotted with Williams at 2023 Dutch GP

She was once described as the "most beautiful" athlete in the world.

Ex-professional cyclist turned social media cycling influencer Puck Moonen was spotted at the Dutch Grand Prix during the weekend with Williams, who she also spent the event with last season.

Moonen took to social media to share her “pleasure” at being at Zandvoort, where she watched on as reigning World Champion Max Verstappen stormed to a ninth consecutive victory.

“Always such a pleasure to be here, @WilliamsRacing!” Moonen wrote on an Instagram story to her 740,000 followers.

Moonen was at one point dubbed as the ‘world’s most beautiful athlete’, before a knee injury saw her have to leave cycling team Lotto-Soudal Ladies in 2019.

She continues to race occasionally, with her having recently competed in the inaugural UCI Gravel World Championships last September.

The Dutch influencer is incredibly popular in her nation, so would’ve likely been pleased to see the home hero take victory for an 11th time in 2023.

Moonen was actually at the 2022 Dutch GP with Williams as well, another race which was won by Verstappen.

“Endless thanks to @williamsracing for having us this weekend at the Dutch F1 Grand Prix in Zandvoort! Definitely the most fun bunch of people on the grid, and the atmosphere within the team was amazing!” she wrote on social media after last year’s race.

Williams endured a very mixed day on Sunday, with Alex Albon having scored yet more solid points for the team, whilst Logan Sargeant crashed out.

Sargeant appeared to suffer from a power steering failure, which saw him crash into the wall on the exit of Turn 7.

It was a heavy shunt for the American, who also crashed on Saturday after making it into Q3 for the first time in his Formula 1 career.

Albon also made it into Q3 on Saturday and claimed fourth on the grid for Sunday, matching his best-ever qualifying position.

He converted fourth on the grid into eighth in the race, moving Williams four points clear in the fight for seventh in the Constructors’ Championship.

The Grove-based team now sit on 15 points, all of which have been scored by Albon.

Sargeant was actually left to watch the rest of the race from where he crashed, something which was captured by the TV feed.
