Max Verstappen takes Canadian F1 GP pole in wet

Red Bull’s Max Verstappen took pole position for the Canadian Grand Prix, the ninth round of the 2022 F1 World Championship, in a dramatic wet-but-drying qualifying session, Trend reports citing Motorsport.com.

In soaking wet conditions, Verstappen set the early pace at 1m35.830s. The times then tumbled, with George Russell (Mercedes), Kevin Magnussen (Haas), Valtteri Bottas (Alfa Romeo), Russell again, Verstappen, Alonso, Sainz and Verstappen again all taking turns at the top.

Verstappen ended Q1 with the fastest time at 1m32.219s, ahead of Fernando Alonso (Alpine) and Sainz, the latter suffering an off at Turn 3 and appearing to impede Esteban Ocon’s Alpine as he rejoined – although stewards later exonerated him.
