Starting Grid for F1 2023 Canadian GP – Final Grid Positions

    Max Verstappen produced the best time in qualifying to start from first place for the 2023 Canadian GP, ahead of Fernando Alonso in the Aston Martin


    Red Bull and Max Verstappen proved once again that they are the team to beat in Canada with the Dutchman producing the standout time in damp conditions of the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve to be first on the starting grid for the 2023 Canadian GP. 

    It looked as if Nico Hulkenberg would be lining up second on the starting grid in Canada, but the Haas driver failed to keep to the FIA delta time under red flag conditions and was handed a three place grid drop. That means Fernando Alonso in the Aston Martin will be on the front row alongside Verstappen

    Mercedes look to be contenders for the podium, as Lewis Hamilton will start third on the grid, alongside teammate George Russell. Hulkenberg is in fifth. 

    Esteban Ocon in the Alpine lines up sixth on the grid, with the McLaren pair of Lando Norris and Oscar Piastri, seventh and eighth, respectively. Alex Albon in the Williams and Charles Leclerc of Ferrari round out the top 10 on the starting grid.
