F1 2024 Canadian Grand Prix: Verstappen Leads Amid Safety Car Chaos and Strategic Gambles



Live Coverage of the 2024 F1 Canadian Grand Prix: Max Verstappen in the Lead After Safety Car Incident

Stay tuned for real-time updates of each lap in the 2024 F1 Canadian Grand Prix at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.

Racing resumes on Lap 30 with Verstappen maintaining his lead over Russell through Turns 1 and 2.

Ferrari took a risk by calling Leclerc into the pits and fitting his car with hard tires…

Norris has now made a pit stop, resulting in Verstappen taking over the lead. Norris has also fallen behind Russell.

In Miami, Norris and McLaren benefited greatly from the Safety Car, but that wasn't the case today.

On the 25th lap out

Sargeant crashes into the barrier at Turn 4, prompting the deployment of the Safety Car.

All drivers except race leader Norris stop to change to new intermediate tires.

Hamilton overtakes Alonso during a pit stop!

Lap 21 out of 70: Norris moves into first place!

An impressive maneuver to the outside of Russell leading up to the last chicane.

Russell bypasses the chicane, allowing Verstappen to overtake him and gain another position.

The driver who started in pole position drops to third place.

Lap 20: Norris has advanced to second place by overtaking Verstappen's Red Bull with the aid of DRS!

He is currently directly trailing Russell.

The circuit has been deemed sufficiently dry to permit the use of DRS. This development benefits Norris in his competition with Verstappen.

Verstappen goes off the track at Turn 1, losing a few seconds to Russell and allowing the Mercedes driver to gain some crucial breathing room.

Verstappen's error has allowed Norris in his McLaren to close in, now just a second behind the Red Bull driver and currently the fastest on the circuit.

A distinct dry path is emerging. However, areas off this racing line remain wet. Drivers are searching for damp sections on the straights to cool their tires, and Russell has indicated that it might soon be appropriate to switch to slick tires.

The weather in Montreal is currently brightening up as the sun emerges, however, Mercedes has informed Russell that they expect more rainfall within the next 15 minutes.

Approximately 25 seconds behind the race leader, longtime rivals Alonso and Hamilton are fighting for the fifth position.

Currently, Alonso is maintaining his lead, while Hamilton has had several opportunities to close the gap but hasn't been able to attempt a pass.

As anticipated, Ricciardo received a penalty for jumping the start. The Australian driver, who is now in seventh place, was handed a five-second time penalty.

Verstappen is closing in on Russell, reducing the gap to less than one second as he relentlessly pursues the Mercedes.

However, he will not benefit from the DRS enhancement in these rainy conditions.

Breaking news: The stewards have observed Ricciardo for a potential jump start.

An RB driver currently in 8th place might face a penalty.

Verstappen is now speeding up as his intermediate tires have warmed up. He has just recorded the quickest lap, cutting down Russell's lead to 1.6 seconds.

Sargeant continues directly ahead at Turn 6 and crashes into the barrier!

However, he manages to back out despite the damage to his front wing and keeps racing.

This eliminates the requirement for a Safety Car.

"There are problems with the engine."

This isn't the kind of radio update Leclerc would want to receive!

He remains in 11th position at the moment.

The rain is beginning to let up and patches of blue sky are becoming visible.

Should the mid-level runners maintain their course, they could still be in good shape.

In the meantime, Magnussen has moved up to fourth place, but it's uncertain how long the conditions will remain wet enough to require full wet tires.

Lap 3 of 70: Magnussen is speeding ahead!

He skillfully maneuvers through the pack, overtaking both Hamilton and Alonso to claim fifth place.

Hulkenberg is advancing well and has climbed to the ninth position.

They have the appropriate tires for the current conditions.

During the initial lap, Hamilton successfully overtook Ricciardo. Meanwhile, Magnussen is making remarkable progress on the wet tires, having already climbed to sixth place.

The Canadian Grand Prix has officially started as the lights go out!

Russell maintains his position ahead of Verstappen through the initial corners.

Russell heads the pack as they start the formation lap. The race in Canada is about to begin!

Rain showers are surrounding the track, and precipitation has started once more.

All drivers are on intermediate tires except for the Haas team, who have opted for full wet tires.

While walking on the grid, Martin Brundle interviewed Safety Car driver Bernd Maylander, who mentioned that he anticipates a regular standing start for the race unless there's additional rainfall.

Pit area: Bottas and Zhou

Following an unexpected pole position in qualifying, his first since 2022, can Russell now turn this into Mercedes' first victory since the 2022 Sao Paulo Grand Prix?

The British individual mentioned that he sees "no reason" why victory can't be achieved today, although it will be quite challenging due to the weather conditions.

Russell faces the additional challenge of having reigning world champion Verstappen next to him as they head towards Turn 1.

Red Bull is not the leading contender in Canada following a challenging weekend, but Verstappen should never be discounted.
