George Russell claimed Mercedes’ first pole position of the 2024 F1 season by topping a thrilling qualifying session at the Canadian Grand Prix. 

In an incredible showdown, Russell and Red Bull’s Max Verstappen set idential lap times but it was the Mercedes driver who took pole due to completing his lap first. 

McLaren’s Lando Norris was third-fastest and just 0.021s away from claiming pole, with teammate Oscar Piastri joining him on the second row in fourth. 

RB’s Daniel Ricciardo starred on his way to claiming fifth, while Aston Martin’s Fernando Alonso pipped Lewis Hamilton to sixth. 

Yuki Tsunoda, who will stay at RB next season, finished eighth, ahead of Lance Stroll and Alex Albon. 

The Ferrari duo of Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz were shockingly dumped out in the second part of qualifying. 

Meanwhile, there was another qualifying disaster for Sergio Perez, who suffered his second straight Q1 elimination with a time only good enough for 16th on the grid.
