The Canadian Grand Prix has returned to the F1 calendar after three years, as the 2020 and 2021 editions of the event were scrapped due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Many drivers were very excited to return to the event, and the track has a good reputation among the fans.
Max Verstappen will start the race on pole position, with Fernando Alonso joining him on the front row. Carlos Sainz will be behind Max Verstappen on 3rd, where he is joined by Lewis Hamilton, winner of the last event. Sainz’s teammate Charles Leclerc will start from the back of the grid after taking additional components, while Sergio Perez will start 13th after he had an incident in Q2.
Both Sergio Perez and Charles Leclerc will be aiming to climb through the field quickly, and the potential of a first Carlos Sainz victory will make for an exciting race. The potential of a Fernando Alonso victory, or even a podium, will be music to the ears of a lot of fans. But Max Verstappen has looked strong all weekend – and he will want a smooth race to extend his lead at the top of the table.
