The Canadian GP, ​​held this Sunday, was marked by the strategic skill and resilience of the drivers in a race that had several abandonments and challenging weather conditions. Max Verstappen, from Red Bull Racing, was crowned winner after a fierce dispute with Lando Norris, from McLaren, once again demonstrating his dominance in the 2024 season.

The race and climate challenges

Starting from second position, Verstappen faced challenges from the start. George Russell, from Mercedes, managed to hold on to the initial lead, while Lando Norris and Verstappen fought intensely for second place. The race started under wet track conditions, which required the drivers to have a well-calculated strategy for pit stops.

On lap 25, an incident involving Logan Sargeant brought the safety car onto the track, a crucial moment for Verstappen's strategy. Taking advantage of the opportunity, the Red Bull team brought forward their pit stop, allowing Verstappen to take the lead by getting ahead of Norris. The decision proved to be correct, consolidating the three-time champion's advantage.

Pit stop strategy and overcoming rivals

Even though he lost second place to Norris at the start of the race, Verstappen managed to strategically regain the lead. After the first pit stop, the Red Bull driver demonstrated a strong and consistent pace, which allowed him to gain an advantage over his direct competitors.

During the race, Verstappen had to overtake Norris again after a new round of pit stops. The driver's ability to maintain consistency under adverse wet track conditions was essential in securing the victory. George Russell, who had started on pole position, also had difficulty maintaining the pace, almost losing third place to McLaren's Oscar Piastri in the final laps. Russell, however, managed to hold on to third place, thus ensuring Mercedes' first podium of the 2024 season.
