McLaren’s Lando Norris set the pace in opening practice for the Canadian Grand Prix, with the session impacted by huge storms that hit Montreal.

There was no running for 20 minutes as marshals cleared away excess standing water, and when the drivers were eventually allowed to venture out and try the conditions, the field ran either intermediates or the full wet tyres. 

Conditions drastically improved as the rain lessened, enabling everyone to switch onto slicks for the closing moments of the session, with Norris posting the fastest time with a 1m24.435s. 

Norris was three tenths clear of Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz, while teammate Charles Leclerc was third. 

Lewis Hamilton put his Mercedes fourth, ahead of Red Bull’s reigning world champion Max Verstappen. 

The second McLaren of Oscar Piastri took sixth, with Pierre Gasly and Valtteri Bottas finishing seventh and eighth for Alpine and Sauber. 

Red Bull’s Sergio Perez and Mercedes’ George Russell completed the top-10 order.

Sauber’s Zhou Guanyu caused a red flag mid-way through the session when he was caught out by a puddle and hit the wall before stopping on track.
