Rain adds to the pole party in Canada with Sainz and Alonso going all out


On Friday, the teams were notified. In the final seconds of Free Practice 2 of Canadian F1 GPthe universal deluge fell on Montreal Circuit de Gilles-Villeneuve. The water waited for the teams to dry for about an hour and a half in FP2, but he doesn’t plan to give any truce today, both in Free Practice 3, and in the fight for pole position (10:00 pm/DAZN F1). If the differences could be less in Montreal after what was seen on Friday, even with Verstappen reserving so many cards, in the water today nothing can be denied.

The downforce of cars can count for a lot, but tThe hands of the pilots will also be of prime value, especially in front of a ‘Wall of Champions’ that will await its moment of glory. It will also be key to know how to read the track conditions to find the best moment for the attack. Sorting promises strong emotions.

A great group of applicants with Alonso and Sainz

Verstappen is still favouritebut in the match there are many loose roosters. The two Mercedes seemed to confirm yesterday the improvement they showed in Barcelona, ​​​​​​dominating Free Practice 2 with a double win, with Hamilton 1st and Russell 2nd.. Carlos Sainz, already 2nd in the ‘qualification’ in Barcelona, ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ The man from Madrid is comfortable in his car and will do anything.

Charles Leclerc needs to improve after his poor classification in Barcelonawhere he was 19th and failed to pass Q1. Also a ‘Checo’ Pérez who can’t keep giving ground to Max. And in that fight Fernando Alonso is also expected to be there with his renewed Aston Martin, which has a better weapon than Montmeló.

Alonso, to get rid of Barcelona

The Spaniard took advantage of yesterday’s second free practice session to collect a lot of key data with the dry track from the new package of improvements he started on his car and now he wants to once again make the difference with his hands in a track that seems complicated. Verstappen is favorite, but Water could reverse the starting grid of tomorrow’s race, where there is also a 60% chance of rain.

Fernando will try to remove the ‘thorn’ of Barcelona. There he touched a wet spot and went onto the gravel, damaging the bottom of his car in Q1. Then, in Q3, another mistake prevented him from reaching a front row magical drive with such extensive damage. Now, two weeks later, in Canada Fernando Alonso wants to shine again in qualifying.

Exactly, last year (2022), in Montreal, Fernando returned to the front row of the grid after 10 years. He did so in wet conditions, achieving an excellent second starting place second only to Verstappen.

Qualifying will once again be key to their chances of returning to the podium in a very tight group at the front. If Sunday’s round is dry, he will hope to take advantage of the theoretically less degradation of his Aston Martin and the step forward his car has made with new parts to go for his sixth podium finish in eight races.
