Max Verstappen wins the Canadian GP and establishes himself at the top of F1

Max Verstappen (Red Bull) won this Sunday the Canadian Grand Prix of the Formula 1which was the ninth date of the World Cup season that was run at the Gilles Villeneuve Autodrome on the Island of Notre Dame.

After leading at the start, the Dutchman made an early pit stop and handed over to Carlos Sainz (Ferrari). But then the world champion regained control and ended up achieving his sixth victory of the year and affirmed himself at the top of the tournament.

On the ninth lap came the first blow to the scene with the abandonment of Sergio Pérez due to an engine failure in his Red Bull. “Everything went wrong for us this weekend. Reliability problems continue to affect us quite a bit”.

“I was completely neutral and I didn’t advance at all. We have everything to be able to recover and get the podium”, declared Checo Pérez. This forced a virtual safety car and Max Verstappen opted to pit and they put the hard compound on him.

After overtaking Fernando Alonso, who worked hard in his Alpine, Max was second behind Sainz, but in the second virtual safety car (Mick Schumacher’s Haas being withdrawn due to mechanical failure), Sainz entered the pits and Verstappen regained the race command.

Max made a good difference at the front and behind him were Sainz, Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes), Alonso and George Russell (Mercedes). With the stoppage of Alonso (lap 29), Russell jumped to the partial podium of the race, but was later overtaken by Hamilton.

Max cemented himself at the top of the championship table that will follow on July 3 with the British Grand Prix at the legendary Silverstone Autodrome in England, where F1 began writing its history on May 13, 1950.
