Max Verstappen extended his lead in the F1 Drivers’ Championship by clinching victory at the Canadian Grand Prix. With six wins out of eight races, the Dutch driver now holds a commanding 69-point advantage over Red Bull teammate Sergio Perez.
Verstappen is well on track for a third consecutive world title as the season passes the one-third mark. Perez remains a strong contender in second place, while Fernando Alonso impresses with Aston Martin and Lewis Hamilton shows improvement after a challenging 2022 season.
Uncertainty surrounds Hamilton’s future in Formula 1 as his contract with Mercedes is set to expire.
Speculation about Hamilton’s future includes a potential move to Red Bull, although commentator Martin Brundle dismisses such claims. Meanwhile, FIA director Nikolas Tombazis warns Hamilton that rival teams could catch up using the Red Bull-style sidepod design. Exciting battles lie ahead in the F1 championship.
