F1 Canadian GP qualifying

How and when to watch qualifying are listed here.


Practice sessions at the Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal faced some delays and interruptions due to technical issues with the circuit’s CCTV system. However, the second practice session was extended to make up for the lost time, allowing teams to have a proper practice session.

In the second practice session, Lewis Hamilton took the lead for Mercedes, followed by his teammate George Russell. Hamilton benefited from using softer tires later in the session compared to his competitors. Towards the end of FP2, heavy rain showers hit the track, bringing the session to a halt.

Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz held onto third place, while Aston Martin’s Fernando Alonso secured the fourth spot using the team’s major upgrade package for this race. Charles Leclerc from Ferrari finished fifth, with Max Verstappen from Red Bull in sixth place. Valtteri Bottas from Alfa Romeo, who performed well in the shortened FP1, took seventh place, and Sergio Perez from Red Bull finished in eighth position.
