2022 F1 Canadian GP – How to watch, session timings and more – Autosport

The F1 paddock makes the 5,500-mile trip from Baku to Montreal for the welcomed return of the Canadian round for the first time in three years, having dropped off the calendar in 2020 and 2021 amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Just like the Australian GP earlier this season, it provides a relative unknown on F1’s return to Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in front of an expected bumper crowd.
Max Verstappen carries his momentum of four wins in the last five races, only losing out on Monaco GP victory to Red Bull team-mate Sergio Perez, which has seen the Dutch driver move into a 21-point lead in the F1 drivers’ standings.
Ferrari will be looking to bounce back after a poor run of results, the latest coming in Baku with a double retirement, as Charles Leclerc suffered an engine failure and Carlos Sainz was forced out with an hydraulics problem.

Focus will also be on Mercedes to see how its latest changes aim to fix its porpoising and bouncing problem with its F1 car, which left Lewis Hamilton in agony at the end of the Azerbaijan GP.
Previously, the Montreal race has been a happy hunting ground for Hamilton and Mercedes, having taken four of the past five Canadian GP wins, a run only interrupted by Sebastian Vettel’s triumph for Ferrari in 2018.
But with a new generation of F1 cars, Red Bull and Ferrari will remain the favourites going into this weekend having shared all of the wins so far this season.
