2019 Canadian Grand Prix

The 2019 Canadian Grand Prix (formally known as the Formula 1 Pirelli Grand Prix du Canada 2019) was a Formula One motor race held on 9 June 2019 at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It was the seventh round of the 2019 FIA Formula One World Championship. It was the fifty-sixth running of the Canadian Grand Prix, the fiftieth time the event had been included as a round of the Formula One World Championship since the inception of the series in 1950, and the fortieth time that a World Championship was held at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. The race was won by Lewis Hamilton after a controversial penalty was given to race leader Sebastian Vettel.

Championship standings before the race

Heading into the race Lewis Hamilton had a 17 point advantage over team mate Valtteri Bottas in the Drivers’ Championship. In the Constructors’ Championship it was Mercedes who held a 118 point advantage over Ferrari.

Qualifying

Sebastian Vettel won pole position ahead of Lewis Hamilton and Vettel’s teammate Charles Leclerc. Max Verstappen could only finish 11th in Q2 following a crash at the final corner from Kevin Magnussen, who therefore failed to set a lap time in Q3, and started the race from the pit lane. Daniel Ricciardo qualified in 4th place for Renault, the team’s highest qualifying position since Robert Kubica qualified 4th at the 2010 Japanese Grand Prix.

Race

The race was won by Lewis Hamilton after a controversial penalty was given to race leader Sebastian Vettel with his team, Ferrari, announcing their intention to appeal. They announced three days later however, that they would not follow through with the appeal, though they are still reviewing the evidence. On June 21, Ferrari’s request to review the penalty was officially denied by the FIA. Ferrari’s new evidence for Vettel’s innocence—video analysis of the incident by Sky Sports and face camera footage from Vettel’s car—was deemed either insignificant or redundant.
