Verstappen Clinches Victory in Chaotic Canadian Grand Prix

Round 9 of the 2024 Formula 1 season unfolded at Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve in Montreal, Canada, where Max Verstappen emerged victorious after a thrilling and chaotic race. The Red Bull driver secured his win amidst unpredictable weather conditions, multiple safety car interventions, and fierce competition from McLaren and Mercedes.

Race Overview

Max Verstappen's win in Montreal marks his third consecutive victory at this iconic circuit. The race, which saw rain play a significant role, was anything but straightforward. Lando Norris and George Russell completed the podium, finishing second and third respectively. The race was particularly harsh for Ferrari, with both Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz retiring due to mechanical issues, significantly affecting their standing in the Constructors' Championship. Sergio Perez also faced a tough race, retiring early and further complicating his season.

Key Moments

Early Drama and Safety Cars: The race began under wet conditions, leading to strategic gambles on tyre choices. The first of two safety cars was deployed early on when Logan Sargeant crashed, compressing the field and setting the stage for a series of intense battles.

Verstappen's Strategic Mastery: Despite early challenges and impressive pace from Norris and Russell, Verstappen capitalized on Red Bull's strategic prowess. The team’s well-timed pit stops and Verstappen's skillful driving in varying conditions allowed him to navigate through the chaos and secure the lead.

Ferrari's Misfortune: Ferrari's day went from bad to worse as both drivers retired. Leclerc faced an early technical issue that forced him out, while Sainz's collision with Alex Albon ended his race. This double DNF is a significant blow to Ferrari, who now trail further behind Red Bull in the Constructors' Championship.

Midfield Battles: The midfield provided plenty of action, with notable performances from Daniel Ricciardo, who finished eighth, and Pierre Gasly, who secured crucial points for Alpine by overtaking his teammate Esteban Ocon on the final lap.

Podium Reactions

Max Verstappen: "It was a pretty crazy race with lots happening, especially with the weather and safety cars. We managed the calls well, and it was fun out there. Happy to get another win in Montreal."

Lando Norris: "Chaos out there today, but it was a fun race. The safety car shuffled things around, and while it worked against us at times, we still managed to secure second. Congrats to Max for the win."

George Russell: "Feels like a missed opportunity. We had good pace and were in the mix for the win. Made a few mistakes pushing the limits, but we’ll take the positives and move forward."

Mercedes and McLaren Shine

Mercedes showed promising pace throughout the weekend, with Russell leading early and finishing strong despite a near-miss with Oscar Piastri. Lewis Hamilton finished fourth, his best result of the season, showcasing the improvements in the Mercedes camp.

McLaren also had a strong showing, with Norris driving a stellar race to finish second and Piastri displaying solid performance, ultimately securing valuable points for the team.

Looking Ahead

The championship battle tightens as the F1 circus heads back to Europe. Verstappen maintains his lead, but with close margins and increasingly competitive races, the season promises more excitement. Teams will regroup and prepare for the upcoming Spanish Grand Prix, where the action will continue.

12 F1 Fan comments on “2024 Canadian F1 Grand Prix Race Report & Results

  1. Tommy

    OOOPS! Once again the talent shows their bias and ignorance. Since Monaco all the analyst have been bloviating about is how Red Bull and Max's reign of terror is over and how Ferrari, McLaren and Mercedes were going to probably not even remember their is a team called Red Bull and a driver named Max. Its funny when they would talk about Max only being 31 points ahead of Leclerc that they seemed to forget Max and RB Had a DNF and got 0 points in that race, well now Leclerc has his own DNF and no points race and Max now has a 56 point lead on him, Max could now sit out the next 2 races and at worst still have a 4 point lead when he came back. Im sure next race weekend they will back at it talking about kerbs and bumps and safety cars along with ifs ands and buts and if this happened or if that happened....They cant stand it when RB and Max gains points on everyone.

    • shroppyfly

      Indeed , nice to see King George at the front, ok he made a cpl of small mistakes but goes to show he has all the skills probably just a bit race at the front rustys

  2. Jere Jyrälä

    Good battling at the front with Norris, unfortunately, losing out on SC the first time out, but what a race by Sargeant, Perez, & the Ferraris.
    Rookie errors by the former two & Sainz, for which Albon was an innocent victim, consequently costing Williams valuable points.
    I'm surprised how slow Zhou was in the race, eventually ending up getting lapped by all other remaining drivers & even twice by the leader briefly.
    Tsunoda threw away a higher points haul for Visa RB, which, oppositely, benefitted Alpine for P8 in the constructors' standings.

  3. Manxman

    Great race to watch - probably the best of the season so far. Nothing against Max but thankfully some racing at the front with multiple teams in contention.

    And to Ocon, Ricardo, Stroll, Sargent and the other pretenders to ‘worst teammate’ crown, bow down to the greatness of Perez.

  4. shroppyfly

    Dont panic,donty panic as soon as Hannah gets her head together shell be going for the wins, dont make me laugh, Lulu , the savior of Ferrari, trust me theyll do well to tear up that contract on the basis her skirts are to short or something, nice to see 2 Brits on the podium, ie the future for Britains F1 challenge not the jaded past ala Laura, as Tommy says , Rb still walking the championship, but come Checo, get up there and support the Maxster

  5. shroppyfly

    So Lucy has a huge 103 wins to her name which is a lot, but is it? Max is on 60 so he has 39 more chances before a rule change to increase that tally, by which time hell be 28yr thereabouts, im going to say hell win 50% of those races meaning hell have 80 wins, How many years will it take him to surpass the 103, answers on a postcard please....!

  6. Blo

    So far Stropy, 103 so far. He may never win another gp but I doubt it, especially if blondie comes back. Sod the drivers, f1 hasn’t been the same without blondie.

    • shroppyfly

      Obviously had second thoughts about being Hannahs lacky again , either that or she wont move to Italy

      It could be Maxster wins all 39 and Her win record will be history as near as makes nomatter

      With all the young hungry drivers Max, Sainz,Charlie,Chuck, pastry boy and King George, you dont seriously believe shell another race do you...!
