Canada Grand Prix
The Azerbaijan Grand Prix was a great success for the Red Bull team. Both pilots took the top places on the podium, thanks to which the Bulls have no equal in the World Constructors Championship. At the moment, Red Bull holds the leading position 80 points ahead of the second Ferrari and 118 of the third Mercedes. It seems that the winner is already known.
Last weekend's victory was the fifth for Verstappen this season. The Dutchman shows simply amazing results, and clearly, he wants to become champion for the second time in a row. Leclerc for him is no longer as dangerous as his teammate. Sergio Perez has overtaken the Monegasque in the individual standings, thereby leading the pursuit of the colleague. Ahead of the Canadian Grand Prix, the Dutchman has 150 points, the Mexican 129, and the Monegasque 116.
Verstappen won both Canadian Grand Prix free practices. Max set the fastest time, 1:14.127. Leclerc was second (+0.081) and Sainz third (+0.225).
"It’s great to be back in Canada: a circuit that is demanding, bumpy, and full of curbs, so it’s definitely a challenge for these new cars. I’ve enjoyed the first practice day and we have been capable to progress well through the two sessions. It got very tricky at times due to the strong and gusty wind, but we managed to complete all our programs without any issues. Tyre's understanding will be very important come Sunday, and we gathered good data with today’s run plan. Looking forward to tomorrow."
"It was a positive day, of course, there are always aspects to analyze to try to find a complete balance, but overall today it was a good start to the weekend. The softer compound is always the most difficult to fully exploit, so I think there is still time to devote to this compound to extract its full potential, but also this weekend we have a competitive car and this is positive. If it rains in qualifying, it’s the same for everyone, we just have to face it. It is good to see that for Sunday we should have a competitive car, so whatever happens in Qualifying we know we can then eventually recover.”
Expert Betting Tips
Max Verstappen is the clear favorite to win the upcoming race, and it is clear why. The Dutchman started the weekend confidently, plus after winning in Azerbaijan he will be on a roll. The pilot now in any case can not relax, as Perez and Leclerc have enough time to catch up with him in the individual standings. In our opinion, Max will win the second race in a row.
Prediction: Verstappen will win the race.
