WEEKEND WARM-UP: Can Ferrari win again, or will McLaren take the fight to Red Bull in Montreal?


The F1 circus has left Europe temporarily, and jumped across the pond to Canada for the ninth round of the season. But who is going to win this weekend at the Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve?

Max Verstappen will want to reassert his dominance on the 2024 season after not just failing to win in Monaco, but not even making the podium. There is far more to discuss down at Red Bull than just the Dutchman's form though, with his team mate having signed a new contract extension.

Ferrari and McLaren look well placed to challenge the Bulls yet again here, but will they go well in the wet? The forecast might catch everyone out, with very little wet weather running so far this season and the potential for plenty of rain across the entire weekend.

BETTING GUIDE: Who is tipped to make their mark in Montreal?

Then there is Alpine to discuss – the French team having opted to part ways with Esteban Ocon at the end of the season. How will Ocon react this weekend? He'll look to produce a rear-guard drive from towards the back on Sunday as he is carrying a grid penalty into this race, earned last time out in Monaco.

For all this and much more, join Lawrence Barretto, Ruth Buscombe, Laura Winter and Jolyon Palmer for the Canadian Grand Prix Weekend Warm-Up.
