Max Verstappen set the fastest time in the third and final free practice session of the Canadian Grand Prix, marked by heavy rain falling on Montreal’s Gilles Villeneuve circuit.
On a soggy track, the two-time world champion again exploited the superiority of his Red Bull car to prevail in a session that registered numerous track exits.
Carlos Sainz was one of the drivers in trouble when he damaged the front of his Ferrari after losing control at the end of a straight.

Following his total dominance in Spain, Dutch world champion Max Verstappen will try to extend his superiority and extend his lead in the title race at the Canadian Grand Prix, the eighth round of the Formula 1 season, this weekend in Montreal.
The Red Bull driver, who won in Montreal last year, has taken successive victories in Miami, Monte Carlo and Barcelona, and extended his lead at the top of the World Championship by 53 points over his nearest rival and teammate, Mexican Sergio ‘Checo’ Perez.
He has also led every lap since lap 48 in Florida, a total of 154, the longest uninterrupted race since 2012, when four-time champion Sebastian Vettel was equally supreme for the Milton Keynes-based team.
A new victory on Sunday at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, a high-speed semi-street track on Notre Dame Island, would be Red Bull’s 100th in Formula 1.
Only four other teams have achieved 100 victories in the history of motorsport’s top flight – Ferrari, McLaren, Mercedes and Williams – and few people have enjoyed such a coincidence of invincibility for man and machine.
Two-time Italian champion Alberto Ascari led a record 305 laps between the 1952 Belgian Grand Prix and the Dutch event in 1953, a streak that three-time Brazilian champion Ayrton Senna in 1988, with 264 consecutive laps at the front, tried to match.
Britain’s Nigel Mansell, champion in 1987, and Vettel are the only other drivers to have topped 200 laps as a leader.
– ‘Czech’ doubles down –
“This track is unique,” said Verstappen, 25. “You get to get on some old-school curbs and the scenery is great too. The set-up of the car has to be a balance between the straight line and the good ride on the curbs.”
For his part, ‘Checo’ Perez, recently regarded as the “king of street tracks” before his qualifying crash in Monaco, said he has been working on preparing the team to rekindle the form that gave it two wins at the start of the season.
“As a team, we have worked well and we know what we have to do to get the car to a window where I perform better,” said the Mexican. “At times like this it’s more important than ever to work as a team.”
– Stroll wants two podium spots –
After their disappointing result in Spain, Ferrari and Aston Martin are also hoping for a recovery with the British team’s Canadian owner, Lawrence Stroll, eager to see both his son Lance and two-time world champion Fernando Alonso, 41, on the podium.
Winner of all seven races this year, Red Bull is the clear favorite in Montreal, but the resurgent Alonso has already earned five top-three finishes this season and is highly motivated to continue his good momentum.
For Stroll Sr. to see a Canadian driver on the podium in Montreal for the first time since Jacques Villeneuve in 1996 is a special dream and, after beating Alonso in Spain, his son may have the chance to make it come true.
“That’s our plan,” Stroll said. “Hopefully, two cars on the podium.”
After a resurgence in Spain, where they enjoyed a double podium, Mercedes hopes their car can challenge again, but team boss Toto Wolff warned against unrealistic expectations.
