Welcome to FOX SPORTS’ live coverage of the Formula One Canadian Grand Prix.
The pressure will be on for championship leader Lewis Hamilton in qualifying after his crash in FP2 ended his session after just eight laps.
He still finished inside the top six having topped FP1 with his new Mercedes engine but with Charles Leclerc leading a Ferrari 1-2, we might finally see a different manufacturer on the top step of the podium come Monday morning (AEST).
Daniel Ricciardo is looking for a positive result in Montreal again as he returns to the home of his first ever F1 victory, from back in 2014.
He ran in P8 in both practice sessions and is confident he cannot only reach Q3 but put in a strong showing after starting in P6 in Monaco.
“It’s going to be tight but I think we will have the car to put us in the shop for Q3 and then I think our race pace will be… today wasn’t perfect but I think I know what we can do to make that better,” Ricciardo said.
“It should be close, McLaren looks strong, Haas [look strong] as well on one lap. But I’d say that McLaren is the main competitor in the midfield at the moment with Sainz. But I think they’ll be in reach, we will try and get them.
“Carlos’ lap was strong. As a Renault power unit side it was good but we would love to be there in fourth. It was a pretty good day. As we are we have a good shot at Q3 but we need to find a little bit more.”
Track schedule (AEST):
Practice 3: 01.00-02.00
