Red Bull's triple world champion Max Verstappen achieved a hat trick of victories at the Canadian Grand Prix on a challenging Sunday marked by wet and unpredictable conditions at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. Starting from the front row next to Mercedes' pole sitter George Russell, Verstappen navigated through the day's fluctuating conditions, seizing the lead from McLaren's Lando Norris during the final pit stops. The Dutch driver then maintained his position to secure his sixth win in nine races this season and the 60th of his Formula One career. The 26-year-old displayed exceptional skill, managing the ever-changing weather, pit stop skirmishes, and competition from McLaren and Mercedes, all while handling his Red Bull's suspension intricacies. Following a collision between Ferrari's Carlos Sainz and Williams's Alex Albon, which necessitated the safety car's second deployment, Verstappen accelerated away at the restart, finishing 3.879 seconds ahead of Norris. Meanwhile, Russell engaged in a thrilling last-lap battle with teammate Lewis Hamilton to secure third place on the podium.
