F1 Canadian Grand Prix LIVE! Race stream, latest updates


1 Canadian Grand Prix – LIVE!

Formula 1 returns to Montreal after a three-year absence for the tenth round of the 2022 season today.

Max Verstappen starts from pole position with the somewhat surprising names of Fernando Alonso, Carlos Sainz and Lewis Hamilton for company at the front of the grid.

Therefore, this race is a huge chance for the Dutchman to build his championship lead, with second-placed Sergio Perez crashing out in a very wet qualifying session on Saturday and Charles Leclerc starting 19th.

After a disaster in Azerbaijan a week ago, Leclerc’s Ferrari needed new powertrain components to earn a grid penalty.

The weather has cleared up for today’s race at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve with plenty of overtaking and likely drama at one of F1’s favorite race tracks.

With the lights out at 7.00pm BST, follow Standard Sport’s live blog for all the updates from Canada with Matt Majendie on the track to provide expert analysis.

Mercedes admits pushing Hamilton too hard

Mercedes have admitted pushing seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton too far in last weekend’s Azerbaijan Grand Prix.

Hamilton described the race as the toughest and most painful of his career, with his car porpoising causing him a serious back problem.

And Mercedes raised their hands to admit they were to blame for Hamilton’s physical problems as they pushed the car to the limit in Baku.

Team Chief Strategist James Vowles said: “Lewis is an elite athlete who will push the limits of endurance for himself and the car, and that’s what the drivers of Formula 1 is what makes them exceptional.

“On this occasion, however, we pushed the package and our drivers too far. We put them in significant discomfort and we just can’t do it again. We now have a responsibility to ensure that this does not continue. »
