Kevin Magnussen Crash Canada

Could the Season be Hotting-Up?

Ferrari has spent the bulk of the season flattering to deceive. Prodigious pace in pre-season, and constant smiles from Seb, defy what has been a tricky start to the season. Leclercs engine failures in Bahrain, then a qualifying crash in Baku, climaxed into his worst weekend on home soil in Monaco. Its been a similar story on the other side of the garage, as season of ‘what could have been’. For three races now, Ferrari has been entering a make-or-break race weekend.

But Lewis Hamilton is less than a race win ahead, and we’re only a third of the way through. Could the season about to be turned on its head? Ferrari has finally delivered! The Canadian street circuit is a Lewis Hamilton turf, with only one driver being more successful around here – Michael Schumacher. Lew and Seb are separated by two-tenths on the front-row, everything is to play for!

Further down the grid, could we also be about to see Renault return to form. The team arrived in Canada with high hopes for their power-unit upgrade, and Daniel Ricciardo duly put it on the second row, six-tenths down on Lewis but less than two-tenths behind Leclerc. Another mention goes to Lando Norris, who once again qualified inside the top ten. We look forward to great things from Britains next F1 World Champion, surely?
