George Russell took the lead from the pole position under wet conditions at the Canadian Grand Prix on Sunday. With the weather playing an unpredictable muse, Russell could do only so much to hold off Max Verstappen and Lando Norris for so long.

The win is Verstappen’s 60th and snaps a two race win less spell.

Lando Norris took second and held close to Verstappen’s rear wing. Russell earned the final step on the podium to grab third with his McLaren teammates Oscar Piastri cruised to fourth.

Fernando Alonso frustrated Lewis Hamilton for nearly the duration of the gp and wound up fifth as Hamilton finally ended the challenge and earned fourth.

By lap 10, the sun emerged and the racing line at Circuit Jacques Villeneuve dried significantly. For drivers on intermediate wet tires, the conditions improved in their favor. Unfortunately for Kevin Magnussen, the change meant that his Haas team called him in to switch off full wets.
