Montreal hosts Formula 1 this weekend for the Canadian Grand Prix, the ninth race of this 22 grand prix season.

Last weekend saw Red Bull take a decisive lead in both the drivers’ and constructors’ championships as Ferrari endured a nightmare race. Charles Leclerc started on pole at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix but an engine failure caused him to retire from the race.

Max Verstappen capitalised to claim victory and now boasts a 21-point lead over teammate Sergio Perez in the drivers’ standings, with Leclerc a further 13 points back.

Lewis Hamilton was left with severe back pain due to the porpoising issue with his Mercedes car, but the seven-time world champion confirmed he is fit to race this weekend.

He is still playing catch-up to teammate George Russell, though, who claimed third in Azerbaijan and sits an impressive fourth in the standings despite Mercedes’ struggles this season. Here is everything you need to know:

Driver championship

Max Verstappen has extended his lead at the top of the drivers’ championship, and right now his closest rival is his teammate Sergio Perez. That will change, you suspect, if Ferrari can get on top of their reliability issues because clearly Charles Leclerc has the pace in qualifying, but with only a few days until the Canadian Grand Prix gets under way, Ferrari do not have much time to get their car right.
