2022 F1 Canadian Grand Prix: back in Gilles’ backyard

Live coverage of F1 follows as the Canadian Grand Prix weekend continues with the third free practice session and qualifying tonight in Montreal.

Red Bull’s Max Verstappen topped the time records in the two free practice sessions on Friday, but was only slightly ahead of Charles Leclerc in FP2. Ferrari installed a new electronic control in Leclerc’s car before FP2, exceeding the threshold of two, which means Leclerc will face a penalty on the grid for Sunday’s race and will have to qualify near the top of the classification to limit damage.

Mercedes struggled once again as it sought to maximize W13 performance with George Russell finishing FP2 in seventh place and seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton losing in 13th. Mercedes abandoned a redesigned floor concept that it did with the Hamilton car in FP1, and the 37-year-old described the car as “unthinkable” by the team’s radio.

Elsewhere, Red Bull team director Christian Horner remains angry with the FIA’s decision to introduce a new F1 technical directive designed to reduce injuries caused by intense porpoise. “You may understand that safety is the FIA’s main concern, but leaving a technical directive before a race weekend without consulting seems like the wrong way to do things,” Horner told Sky Sports F1. “It’s very dangerous to allow the FIA ​​to set the height of your ball for a weekend. It seems like a very complicated way to tackle a problem that doesn’t affect all teams.”
