F1 Canadian Grand Prix: UK start time, how to watch, session timings, highlights channel

Here’s your handy guide to the upcoming Canadian Grand Prix, from the UK start time to how you can watch the highlights.

When is the Canadian Grand Prix?

The Canadian Grand Prix is the ninth race on the Formula 1 calendar and takes place on Sunday. June 19.

The 70-lap race is held in Montreal, and the Grand Prix has been part of the Formula 1 scene since 1967 at various venues.

Who are the favourites?

This weekend we will see Red Bull pair Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez lock horns again with Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz.

Last weekend in Azerbaijan, Red Bull finished with maximum points. Verstappen won the race, with Perez coming through in second place.

Ferrari, on the other hand, had a disaster. Mechanical issues with both Leclerc and Sainz saw both drivers record DNFs.

They will be looking to put that right at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve this weekend.

Hamilton’s back problems

Seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton suffered back pain in Baku last weekend. It was revealed that this was due to an ongoing porpoising problem in his Mercedes car.

However, it has been reported that despite his struggles, he intends to race in Canada. ESPN reported that Hamilton “wouldn’t miss it for the world.”

This will be followed by second practice, which begins at 10pm UK time. The third practice starts at 6pm on Saturday, before qualifying at 9pm.
