Verstappen completes Canadian practice sweep

Published

on

Max Verstappen was quickest in third and final Canadian Grand Prix practice on Saturday to complete the Red Bull driver sweep of the all three practice sessions ahead of qualifying.

For the final practice session, Sebastian Vettel was second on the timesheets, this time 0.049 slower than Max.

While the second Ferrari ace Kimi Raikkonen was third, a further 0.002s off the pace. Championship leader Lewis Hamilton in fourth was 0.107s shy of Verstappen’s best.

Monaco GP winner Daniel Ricciardo finished fifth quickest ahead of Valtteri Bottas, Sergio Perez and Nico Hulkenberg while Romain Grosjean and Stoffel Vandoorne completed the top ten.

Reaction from what we’ve just seen by Mercedes boss Toto Wolff:

“It’s going to be an interesting qualifying. There is some work to do, we didn’t make the jump on the hypersofts that we were expecting.

“The pace is there but equally Verstappen and Ferrari have the pace as well.

“We don’t take anything for granted.”

Sky Sports F1 Pundit Paul di Resta – Max dropped a full second in lap time on his final lap.

“Rear graining on Vettel’s rear hypersoft tyre and that’s not looking like the tyre you want to start on,” observes di Resta as the German reaches the end of his stint.
