Verstappen is ice cold under pressure, Leclerc and Ferrari are slipping out of title contention and Hamilton shakes off his Baku back pain to re-establish himself as top dog at Mercedes… seven things we learned from the Canadian Grand Prix

Max Verstappen appears to be soaring towards his second drivers’ championship after repelling a late attack from Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz to win the Canadian Grand Prix. Max Verstappen is driving with the confidence of a man who already has a drivers’ championship behind him. In a race where team-mate Sainz just missed out on victory, Leclerc will see it as a missed opportunity given the advantage he has held over the Spaniard this season. There had been a point where Hamilton’s place in the Canadian Grand Prix was under threat, after his bruising weekend in Baku as he struggled with the porpoising of his Mercedes. He qualified in a respectable fourth before showing impressive pace during the race to achieve just his second podium finish of the season.
