Speaking of the top contenders for the title, Red Bull started FP1 with a clear advantage over Ferrari. Verstappen and Sergio Pérez were better in the initial sequence with medium tires, but when the soft compounds were activated, the Italian team equalized.
However, the bulls won. He was the fastest world champion today with a time of 1min15s158 – the last embarrassment that helped him in his free practice in Monaco and Bakun. Carlos Sainz was second, and Fernando Alonso the “intruder” ahead of Sergio Pérez and Charles Leclerc, respectively.
Behind the top five were George Russell, Lance Stroll, Lewis Hamilton, Sebastian Vettel and Daniel Ricciardo. Mercedes fulfilled its role as a third force, and Aston Martin surprised them, and like the Australians, he was ahead of Lando Norris again.
O GRAND PRIZE along with all activities LIVE and IN REAL TIME. Soon, FP2 is scheduled for 6pm (from Brasília, GMT-3).
See how F1 Canadian GP FP1 went:
As soon as the stopwatches were allowed, the drivers soon set off for the official start of Formula 1 action in Canada. With the exception of Nicholas Latifi, Fernando Alonso and Alexander Albon, all of them were circling the Gilles Villeneuve Circuit just under two minutes into the session.
Initially, only Charles Leclerc and Yuki Tsunoda chose soft tires for the initial sequence of their laps. The rest of the network opted for medium compounds – Pirelli, it should be noted, made its smoother range (C3, C4 and C5) available for the Canadian GP.
