F1 Canadian GP qualifying — Start time, how to watch & more

On a mixed opening day in Montreal, rain showers hit both practice sessions to produce a shaken-up order, with Aston Martin’s Alonso taking the top spot in FP2 ahead of Mercedes driver George Russell.
But it was a difficult day for Red Bull and Max Verstappen, who completed just four laps in FP2 due to an ERS issue with his power unit that prevented him from running.
