Red Bull dominates Canadian Grand Prix

Published

Red Bull’s chances of winning the 2022 Formula One Grand Prix season are high, as Max Verstappen secures another victory at the Canadian Grand Prix

Max Verstappen held off Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz to claim the top spot on the podium.

Sainz came in second and Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton clinched the third spot on the podium.

The Dutchman held his nerve right up until the final lap, holding off rival Ferrari in true Red Bull style.

“It was really exciting at the end. I was giving it everything I had and of course Carlos was doing the same.

He was pushing, charging, pushing, charging — naturally when you’re on the DRS it’s easier to charge. The last few laps were a lot of fun.

I think I would have preferred attacking instead of defending but luckily it worked out.”

The two parties mutually agreed to go their separate ways, in the wake of the 37-year-old’s recent interview with Piers Morgan.

In that interview, Ronaldo criticised the manager for not playing him as often and the club for ‘not evolving’ since returning for his second stint.

Ronaldo has not appeared for the Red Devils since picking up an illness in early November.

United are fifth in the Premier League, with the season taking a break for the World Cup in Qatar.

This all comes in the wake of Manchester United’s owners, the Glazer family, looking for investors after 17 years of ownership.
