Starting seventh, Lewis Hamilton will be eager to make up ground quickly. Known for his prowess at this circuit, he could become a significant factor, especially if the race sees variable conditions.

Ferrari’s Recovery Drive

With both Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz outside the top ten, Ferrari faces an uphill battle. However, their aggressive strategy and racecraft could see them making substantial progress, especially if chaos ensues at the front.

Midfield Battles

The midfield pack, featuring the likes of Daniel Ricciardo, Fernando Alonso, Yuki Tsunoda, and Lance Stroll, promises intense battles. Their race strategies will be pivotal in determining their final positions.

Perez’s Challenge

Starting from 16th, Sergio Perez has a mountain to climb. His race will likely be one of the highlights as he attempts to carve through the field.

With potential rain, strategic gambles, and a fiercely competitive grid, the 2024 Canadian Grand Prix is set to be a race to remember. Be sure to tune in for all the action as we witness another chapter in this thrilling Formula 1 season.
