Formula 1: Russell took the coveted place in the classification in Canada

The British pilot George Russell (Mercedes) achieved this Saturday the ‘pole position’ of the Canadian Grand Prix of Formula 1 in an unpredictable classification in which he achieved the same time as Max Verstappen (Red Bull).

The Dutchman, current world champion and leader of the general classification, will start from second place on the grid on Sunday in Montreal for having set the mark of 1 minute and 12 seconds on a lap after Russell.

Third place will be occupied by the British Lando Norris (McLaren) while the veterans Fernando Alonso (Aston Martin) and Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes) will be sixth and seventh.

The day was catastrophic for Ferrari whose pilots, the Monegasque Charles Leclerc (11th place) and Spanish Carlos Sainz (12th), were left out before the last part of the classification.

Leclerc appeared at the Gilles-Villeneuve circuit (4.361 kilometers) as the winner of the previous World Cup stop, in front of his Monaco audience, where Sainz also got on the podium with third place.

In the general classification, Leclerc occupies second position, 31 points behind leader Verstappen, while Sainz is fourth and Russell seventh.

The Mexican Sergio Perezwho this week renewed for two more seasons with Red Bull, was another negative surprise when he was eliminated in the first phase of the session.

“Qualifying was basically a total disaster,” lamented ‘Checo’ Pérez, who will start from sixteenth place.
