Verstappen Narrowly Holds Off Sainz: Three Takeaways From F1’s Canadian GP

The race in Montreal came down to less than a second difference and saw a familiar face returned to the podium.

The Canadian Grand Prix was decided by less than a second.

That’s right, Red Bull’s Max Verstappen managed to hold on by 0.9 seconds, edging ahead of Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz who was hot on his tail for the final 15 laps. The two exchanged the lead numerous times early on in Montreal, but safety cars threw an extra twist into the drama on the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.

But alas, Sainz will continue to hunt for his maiden Formula One victory.
