Max Verstappen starts from pole in Montreal – World news

In yesterday’s post-qualifying interview, Alonso said: “The goal is to lead the race in lap one. Turn One, maximum attack.

“And then after that, they can go and they can fight – but it will be nice, sweet to lead the race.”

Alonso will battle to overcome reigning world champion Max Verstappen, on pole, and snapping at his heels will be Carlos Sainz, representing the flipside of Ferrari’s fortunes in Montreal starting from third.

Lewis Hamilton, whose Mercedes experienced far less of the exaggerated porpoising that has torpedoed his championship chances thus far, starts in fourth, in his highest grid position in 2022. His teammate, George Russell, looked feisty for a spot on the front row, but changed his tyres from intermediates to slicks in Q1 and after momentarily sliding off course at turn one, he lines up eighth. 

But Leclerc remains the driver to watch today. After a promising start, the championship contender’s hopes have dwindled after two DNFs in the past four races, and he starts Sunday 34 points adrift of standings’ leader Verstappen. Can he produce the magical drive from the back of the pack to take a share of the spoils in Canada and reignite his pursuit of the ultimate prize?
