Max Verstappen wins Canadian Grand Prix: F1 – as it happened

22h ago 16.44 EDT George Russell: “Yes. It felt like a missed opportunity to be honest. We were really quick at the beginning on the inters and then Lando came through really fast and then we jumped back onto the slicks and made a couple of mistakes, pushing the limits and paid the price, but nevertheless it was our first podium of the year. We had a really fast car this weekend and to be back in mix fighting for a victory, that’s what F1 is about.” Lewis Hamilton: “I’m not much really different [to how he felt in qualifying on Saturday]. Over the weekend, it was a poor performance from myself. Some other things came into it yesterday, mostly myself and then today, it was one of the worst races I’ve driven, lots of mistakes. “I think this weekend, the car was capable of winning, it’s such a great feeling. We’ll take points and keep on trying.” Share

22h ago 16.42 EDT McLaren’s Lando Norris, who finished second “It was [wild]. It was chaos, it was eventful to be honest, I felt like I drove a good race, the whole time, from start to finish. “The first two stints were strong, I had amazing pace, then the safety car had me over, just like it helped me in Miami. It’s now had me back over. Honestly, I thought it was a pretty perfect race from my side, just a bit unlucky but it was good fun overall.” Share

22h ago 16.41 EDT Some quotes, from Max Verstappen. “It was a pretty crazy race, a lot of things were happening and we had to keep on top of our calls. As a team we did really well today, we remained calm and we pitted at the right time, the safety car worked out nicely for us but even after that we were managing the gaps quite well. “I love it, that was a lot of fun, those kind of races you need once in a while.” Share
