Red Bull Racing's Max Verstappen will look to continue his impressive start to the 2022 F1 season at the Canadian Grand Prix on Sunday, June 19.
The reigning World Champion has surged to the top of the drivers' standings after winning five of the opening eight races and claiming six podium finishes.
Verstappen only completed one of his first three races in 2022, having been forced to retire in the Bahrain Grand Prix and the Australian Grand Prix due to fuel-related issues.

Sandwiched in between those two disappointments, the Dutchman claimed his first victory of the year in the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix and he has gone on to finish on the podium in the subsequent five rounds.
Verstappen (150) leads Red Bull Racing team-mate Sergio Perez by 21 points in the Championship after taking first place in Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, the Miami Grand Prix, the Spanish Grand Prix and the Azerbaijan Grand Prix, while he secured P3 in the Monaco Grand Prix, which was won by the Mexican.
The 24-year-old admitted there was an element of luck in how the race panned out in Baku after Ferrari duo Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz had to retire fairly early on, although he felt the car performed really well.

"I think today we had an incredible pace in the car. We could really look after the tyres, and we could chip away at it, [and] pass for the lead," he told Sky F1.
"But then, of course, also [we were] maybe a tiny bit lucky because of the retirement [for Ferrari], but I think, nevertheless, our car was really quick today, so I could have closed that gap.
"Then of course you have a race on your hands but, overall, [I'm] really happy with how the balance of the car was today."
