Icy calm Max Verstappen just beats Carlos Sainz in Canadian GP | formula 1

Max Verstappen has achieved his sixth victory of the season. The Dutchman held off Carlos Sainz in Canada in an exciting race. Lewis Hamilton was third on the podium. Charles Leclerc limited the damage and finished 5th after a catch-up race, but Verstappen is further ahead in the World Cup standings.

With Charles Leclerc at the very back of the starting grid and Sergio Perez in the middle, Max Verstappen had to fight a duel with Carlos Sainz. Thanks to the virtual safety cars and a real safety car in the final phase, we had a direct duel.

Sainz was under the rear wing of Verstappen for fifteen laps, but the world champion never put a foot wrong on the challenging circuit in Montreal and kept Sainz’s Ferrari at a distance.

Verstappen, for example, took his sixth win of the season and continues to finish in the World Cup. The Dutchman is already 46 points ahead of his teammate Sergio Perez, who remains his first pursuer in the World Cup despite an early retirement.

Safety Car helps Charles Leclerc to fifth place

Behind the backs of Verstappen and Sainz, it was mainly looking forward to the catch-up races of Sergio Perez and Charles Leclerc. Verstappen’s teammate saw his race end soon after a problem with his Red Bull.

Leclerc had to limit the damage as much as possible. He was stuck behind Esteban Ocon for a long time, but thanks to the late safety car he was able to pass the Alpines of Ocon and Alonso to fifth place.

Mercedes will be happy with the weekend. Lewis Hamilton, for example, drove to the third podium step, his first podium since the first GP of the year in Bahrain. His teammate at Mercedes, George Russell, finished fourth and continues his impressive streak this year, having already finished in the top 5 in every GP.
