Dramatic Qualifying Sees Russell and Verstappen Share Identical Times, Setting Stage for Thrilling Canadian Grand Prix



Coverage of the F1 2024 Canadian Grand Prix Qualifying Session

A comprehensive summary of the events that unfolded during an intense qualifying session at the F1 Canadian Grand Prix.

The qualifying session was nothing short of spectacular, laying the groundwork for what promises to be an exceptionally captivating race in Canada tomorrow.

Our live updates for today are wrapping up, but be sure to tune in again tomorrow for continuing coverage of the Canadian Grand Prix.

Meanwhile, keep it locked on for all the top responses and updates following that exciting event.

Russell's teammate, Hamilton, found himself slipping to the seventh position as others managed to enhance their performance.

Norris and Piastri secured third and fourth positions, respectively, while Ricciardo achieved an admirable fifth place.

Alonso manages to edge out Hamilton, securing the sixth position, while Tsunoda, Stroll, and Albon round out the top-10.

Astonishing! Russell has outpaced Verstappen for the pole position in Canada, despite both drivers recording the same lap times. Remarkably, Russell secures the pole by virtue of completing his lap earlier. Amazing!

Is Russell capable of maintaining what would be only his second F1 pole position? Or could someone – maybe his Mercedes teammate Hamilton – pose a threat?

The last series of the third quarter are commencing at this moment.

Russell is leading the way in Q3, clocking the quickest time with a lap of 1m12.000s, though this is not as fast as his top performance in Q2.

Hamilton secures the second position, trailing by 0.280 seconds. Verstappen is close behind, lagging by an additional tenth in third place.

Piastri is currently in fourth place, leading the Aston Martin pair, Fernando Alonso and Lance Stroll.

The final round of the top-10 competition has begun, with the possibility of rain still hanging over the event.

Who will secure the front spot in Canada? The moment of discovery is upon us.

A startling turn of events for Ferrari as Leclerc and Sainz both fail to advance in qualifying, securing positions only at 11th and 12th.

Sargeant, Magnussen, and Gasly have also been eliminated.

Russell secures the top spot in Mercedes one-two, surpassing Hamilton in the second qualifying session.

Russell experienced a significant skid as he exited Turn 4 but successfully avoided colliding with the wall in his Mercedes.

Verstappen succeeds in enhancing his performance in the following lap, yet it only secures him a ninth-place finish.

Subsequently, he is demoted to the 10th position by Sainz…

Russell takes the lead ahead of Piastri and his Mercedes colleague Hamilton during the initial phase of Q2.

Verstappen currently occupies the 11th position, but there's ample opportunity to complete additional laps, assuming the weather remains dry…

The signal is green, and the second qualifying session has commenced. There's a significant lineup of drivers at the pit lane's exit, all eager to capitalize on the favorable dry conditions of the track.

Supporters are hurriedly donning their waterproof jackets and rain gear. Could precipitation be imminent?

Perez has been ousted in the first qualifying round for the second consecutive race.

The Red Bull racer faces a calamity, being eliminated in 16th place.

Bottas, Ocon, Hulkenberg, and Zhou have also been eliminated from qualifying.

Verstappen ultimately secured the top spot with a late surge in speed.

Hamilton has taken the lead with the fastest time as the track conditions improve.

Norris has secured the second position, while Russell has claimed third

Currently, Verstappen is positioned in 10th place.

Currently, the drivers at risk of elimination include Piastri, Perez, Gasly, Ocon, and Zhou.

We still have a chance for another go – and for now, the rain has paused.

Drivers are rushing to clock fast laps on soft tyres in anticipation of the forecasted rain, with the lap times constantly fluctuating.

Verstappen currently leads the rankings, followed by Norris and Stroll.

The first quarter has begun, and there's been a significant shift in the weather. Although it hasn't started to rain, there are ominous dark clouds hovering near the track.

Qualifying is set to begin in just 15 minutes.

The weather continues to be clear at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. The question is, will these conditions persist for the entire session?

This has nicely laid the groundwork for what is shaping up to be a fascinating qualifying round in Montreal.

Is the weather going to hold up? Also, does Mercedes stand a chance to take the lead in the pole position? The answers will be revealed tonight at 9pm.

The checkered flag has been waved, marking the end of FP3, and Hamilton remains in the lead thanks to his outstanding lap.

Towards the end, Verstappen was able to enhance his performance yet again, however, he was only able to close the gap to Hamilton's time by 0.374 seconds.

Russell secured the third spot, lagging behind his teammate by four-tenths of a second, while Stroll and Piastri rounded out the leading five.

Despite expressing grievances, Verstappen has made progress to secure the second position, though he remains approximately six-tenths behind the leader, Hamilton.

The vehicle is experiencing significant bouncing, particularly when decelerating into the first turn. This issue also occurs in turns three and four.

Following a short moment where he was overtaken by his Mercedes colleague Russell, Hamilton reclaimed his leading position with an impressive lap.

He clocks a time of 1m12.549s, putting him a significant 0.7 seconds ahead of Russell.

Verstappen initially secures the third position, but Ricciardo soon overtakes him.

With just over 10 minutes remaining in FP3, drivers have a last opportunity to push hard on soft tyres.

Let's find out who's heading into the qualifying rounds next…
