Provisional Canadian Grand Prix grid

Date published: June 9 2019 - Michelle Foster

Carlos Sainz surprised by strong qualifying performance.

Carlos Sainz will start the Canadian GP from 11th on the grid after being hit with a three-place penalty for impeding Alexander Albon in Q1.

With all the drivers vying for a place in Q2, Albon did the right thing and moved well out of the way for Sainz, who was on a hot lap.

However, having completed his lap, Sainz slowed right down and didn’t return the favour to Albon.

As such the Spaniard, who had qualified P9, will fall to 11th place on the grid.

Kevin Magnussen is another driver to drop out of the top ten.

The Haas driver made it into Q3 on Saturday but did so by ending Q2 with a massive crash.

Magnussen’s car needed repair work overnight, including a new survival cell, meaning he will start from the pit lane.

Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton make up the front row of the grid.
