‘Checo’ Pérez suffers a crash and leaves the qualy of the Canadian Grand Prix

The Mexican Sergio Pérez (Red Bull), who caused a red flag when he crashed -without major consequences, between the third and fourth of the 14 curves-, and the Finn Valtteri Bottas (Alfa Romeo) were eliminated this Saturday in the second round (Q2) of qualifying for the Canadian Grand Prix, the ninth in the Formula One World Championship, which was held, in wet conditions, at the Gilles Villeneuve circuit in Montreal.

The Dutch Max Verstappen (Red Bull), leader of the World Championship, once again set the best time of the round, by covering the 4,361 meters of the artificial island track that bathes the Saint Lawrence River in one minute, 23 seconds and 476 thousandths , one second and 102 thousandths less than the double Spanish world champion Fernando Alonso (Alpine), who signed the second time trial of the act.

Nor did the Monegasque Charles Leclerc (Ferrari) go through to the third round, who, sanctioned for having changed various components of his power unit, will start from the bottom of the grid this Sunday and did not go out on the track; nor the English Lando Norris (McLaren), who did not mark time.

The third round (Q3) will be played next.
