WEEKEND WARM-UP: Aston Martin's upgrades, Red Bull's run of form and weather aplenty as F1 lands in Canada


The Circuit Gilles Villeneuve plays host to the next round of the F1 championship, as the drivers get set to tackle another difficult track in potentially even more difficult conditions.

There is rain forecast across the entire weekend which will be welcome news to some, and much less so to others. Can the weather disrupt the serene progress of Max Verstappen though? The championship leader is on a run of three straight victories, but knows that the chasing pack are closing in.

Aston Martin have some upgrades here that have been the talk of the town, and they have Fernando Alonso chomping at the bit to get back on the podium after an off-weekend in Spain. His team mate will be keen to get into the action too, Lance Stroll enjoying plenty of support here at his home race.
