Seconds out, round eight! After a short break, it’s time to head to Montreal for the Canadian Grand Prix at the beautiful Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.
Max Verstappen and Red Bull went their separate ways last time in Spain to tighten their stranglehold on the respective World Cup titles – and the same story is expected to play out this weekend as well.
But you never know. Mercedes came back to life in Barcelona, while Aston Martin, Ferrari and maybe even Alpine all have ambitions to at least get on the podium at Red Bull.
