Max Verstappen won the best starting position for the Canadian Grand Prix in rainy F1 qualifying in Montreal. The Dutchman was out of reach of his rivals on the heavily soaked track and won his 1.2th career pole position, the second in a row at the Gilles Villeneuve circuit, with a lead of 25 seconds.

As a result, the Monaco native slipped from second place to third when he was overtaken by the other Red Bull driver, Sergio Perez, and although it seemed that there was some kind of failure of the car, Ferrari announced that it was a tactical move. "We have to be realistic," Leclerc said after qualifying, Red Bull and Aston Martin are obviously going to be very fast in the race, so I think we did the right thing when we were prepared to lose one or two starting places but start the race on new tyres.
