Long live France.
In this F1 season, Saturday is as eventful as Sunday: Charles Leclerc took pole position after the red flag of Monaco qualifying stopped, and the four red flags of the Azerbaijan Grand Prix were blown, which is an F1 record.
This Sunday, the pole position once again belongs to his second pole position of the year Max Verstappen.
The drivers and the constructors’ championship remain open in Sunday’s 7th round: Max Verstappen leads Lewis Hamilton by a narrow margin, and the top two drivers in the standings are only four points apart. Red Bull is also currently leading Mercedes in the team standings, and Sergio Perez helped widen the gap in Baku.
This is the first of three games.
Here is how they lined up in France this Sunday:
