THE Formula One season is well underway and the racers head to Montreal where they will be participating in the Canadian Grand Prix today.
Max Verstappen takes a 21-point World Championship lead into Sunday’s race ahead of teammate Sergio Perez, having won in Azerbaijan last weekend.
Sergio Perez trails Max Verstappen by 21 points in the F1 World Championship.
There is now a 34-point gap between Max Verstappen of Red Bull and Charles Leclerc of Ferrari, after the Monegasque driver retired due to engine failure for the second time in three races.
The Dutchman is the odds on favourite at 5/6 with Betfair to win in Montreal this Sunday evening, with Charles Leclerc second favourite at 3/1.
Leclerc’s retirement in the last race, coupled with Perez’s second place finish means that both Red Bull drivers occupy the top two positions in the World Championship for the first time since 2011.
The Mexican finished in the top two for the fourth time in five races as he also picked up the point for the fastest lap.
George Russell claimed his third podium of the season, as he retained his record of being the only driver to finish in the top five of every race this season.

The Mercedes driver lengthened his lead ahead of Carlos Sainz of Ferrari, who also retired, to 17 points.

The 7-time world champion will be looking to achieve just his second podium of the season this weekend.
