Formula 1 returned to Canada for the first time since 2019 Sunday, with Max Verstappen securing his sixth victory in nine Form 1 races this season as he withdrew pressure from Carlos Sainz to cross the finish line first. Taking advantage of a start from Sergio Pérez and Charles Leclerc at the back of the pitch – and the retirement of the Mexican – Lewis Hamilton completed the stage with Mercedes.
Seven-time world champion George Russell went on to record the finish line in the top-5 and fourth place, with Leclerc running the recovery and finishing fifth, just ahead of Esteban Ocon.
Given a 5-second penalty awarded to Fernando Alonso, the Alfa Romeo duo – created by Valtteri Bottas and Guanyu Zhou – secured the next two chances. The two-time Renault world champion appears to be below the Chinese, with Lance Stroll scoring the top 10 with Aston Martin.
