Canadian Grand Prix Scores: A Record Low for One Formula 1 Driver

Crash.net's driver evaluations for the 2024 Canadian Grand Prix.

Max Verstappen – Score: 9.5

Verstappen delivered a performance befitting a champion at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, making just one significant mistake on his way to securing his 60th career victory.

Lando Norris – 9

Norris came very close to clinching victory in Montreal. His performance on intermediate tires at the beginning of the race was outstanding, allowing him to establish an 11-second gap ahead of Verstappen. However, the timing of the Safety Car was unfortunate, causing him to fall back to third place.

George Russell – 8.5

The Canadian Grand Prix seemed to be a lost chance for both Russell and Mercedes. When the track was dry, the W15 car seemed to be the best, especially with Russell driving. Nonetheless, several errors prevented him from having a go at beating Verstappen for the victory.

Lewis Hamilton – 7.5

Hamilton's performance in Canada was lackluster. While his teammate secured pole position, Hamilton only managed to qualify seventh. During the race, he was stuck behind Alonso for more than 20 laps and only passed him due to pit stop strategies. Additionally, his attempt to fend off Russell was rather weak.

Oscar Piastri – 8

Piastri had a stroke of bad luck, ending up in fifth place. In the final laps, he was at a disadvantage against the two Mercedes drivers, who were on new tires thanks to a Safety Car period.

Fernando Alonso – 8.5

Following several subpar performances, Alonso returned to form in Canada. He successfully held off Hamilton for more than 20 laps, but given that the Aston Martin was evidently the fourth fastest car in Montreal this weekend, finishing sixth was the highest achievable outcome.

Lance Stroll – 7.5

Stroll delivered a highly commendable performance on his home turf, securing a finish just one position behind his teammate.

Daniel Ricciardo – 8

Without a doubt, the Canadian Grand Prix was Ricciardo's standout performance this year. He shone in the qualifying round, securing the fifth spot on the grid. Although a false start initially hindered his advancement, he managed to claw his way back into the points, benefiting from the RB's superior speed compared to other midfield competitors.

Pierre Gasly – 7

Gasly secured another points finish as both Alpine drivers avoided any issues and ended up in the top 10. However, he managed to finish ahead of Ocon primarily due to team instructions.

Esteban Ocon – 7.5

Ocon delivered a strong showing, despite using a heavier chassis compared to Gasly. He was on track to secure ninth place, but in the final laps, he had to follow team orders, much to his annoyance.

Nico Hulkenberg – 6.5

Hulkenberg had an unusually poor performance this weekend, failing to advance past Q1. Similar to Magnussen, he initially made strides on the wet tires but eventually fell behind as the race continued.

Kevin Magnussen – 7

This weekend, Magnussen outperformed Hulkenberg. The Danish driver shined in the initial stages of the race, climbing up to fifth place while on wet tires.

Valtteri Bottas – 6.5

Bottas managed to reach 12th place in his Sauber after beginning the race from the pit lane, but he faced difficulties after switching to slick tires. Nevertheless, he outpaced his teammate Zhou by almost a second during qualifying.

Yuki Tsunoda – 6

Tsunoda squandered a chance to score points due to an unusual error at Turn 8.

Zhou Guanyu – 4.5

Zhou had a tough weekend, suffering two crashes during practice sessions. His performance during the race was poor, and he ended up as the last driver to officially complete the race.

Carlos Sainz – 4.5

Ferrari had a difficult weekend in Canada, made worse by Sainz's spin that caused both him and Albon to exit the race.

Alex Albon – 8

Albon was on track to score points after a commendable performance throughout the weekend. Unfortunately, he was unable to steer clear of Sainz's Ferrari.

Sergio Perez – 1

It was a terrible weekend for Perez, marked by an early exit in Q1 followed by a crash. He then incurred a three-place grid penalty for bringing his severely damaged car back to the pit lane. An absolute catastrophe.

Charles Leclerc – 6.5

Ferrari showed an unusual lack of speed in Canada, which resulted in Leclerc getting stuck in Q2. His opportunity to advance was thwarted by a problem related to the engine, leading him to make a risky decision to switch to slick tires in the pit lane.

Logan Sargeant – 4

Sargeant seemed faster than he typically does, but it still didn't suffice as Albon outqualified him for the 30th consecutive time. His race was cut short due to a crash into the barriers.
