F1 Canadian GP Starting Grid 2024 – With Penalties Applied

George Russell and Max Verstappen both set the exact same time in Qualifying, but the Mercedes driver is first on the starting grid for the 2024 Canadian GP as set the time first

-

George Russell has clinched pole position for the 2024 Canadian Grand Prix, delivering a standout performance for Mercedes. The Briton edged out Max Verstappen, with both drivers remarkably setting identical lap times of 1:12.000s. Despite Verstappen’s efforts in the final moments, he could only match Russell’s time, securing P2 on the starting grid.

Lando Norris continued his strong form by securing third place for McLaren, just 0.021s behind Russell. His teammate, Oscar Piastri, will start fourth, while Daniel Ricciardo impressed with a fifth-place finish for RB, a decade after his first F1 victory at the Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve.

Fernando Alonso took P6 for Aston Martin, with Lewis Hamilton in P7 despite showing promising speed earlier in the session. Yuki Tsunoda, confirmed to stay with RB for 2025, claimed P8, followed by Lance Stroll in P9 and Alex Albon in P10.

Ferrari faced a challenging session as both Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz failed to advance past Q2, securing P11 and P12 respectively, a sharp contrast to their podium finishes in Monaco.

Logan Sargeant achieved his best qualifying of the season in P13 for Williams, ahead of Kevin Magnussen in P14 and Pierre Gasly in P15. Sergio Perez had another disappointing session, ending in P16 and marking his second consecutive Q1 exit.

The session also saw Esteban Ocon, who has a five-place grid penalty, qualify in P17 but because of that penalty will start P18. The Haas of Nico Hulkenberg thus moves up to P17. Valtteri Bottas and Zhou Guanyu of Sauber rounded out the grid in P19 and P20 respectively, with both starting from the pit lane.
