 LIVE | Formula 1 FP1 2019 Canadian GP - Hamilton leads Bottas!

The racing is back and this time Formula 1 heads to Montreal for the Canadian Grand Prix. Lewis Hamilton secured another win last time out in Monaco but how will the weekend unfold in Canada?

Mercedes to dominate again?

Mercedes have been utterly dominant this season, winning every race so far in 2019 with Lewis Hamilton claiming four and Valtteri Bottas two. However, their one-two streak was ended in Monaco when Sebastian Vettel claimed his highest finish of 2019 with P2. In Canada, it is again expected to be contested largely between Mercedes and Ferrari with their superior speed trumping the Red Bull team but don't rule out Max Verstappen who has been in fine form and pushed Hamilton all the way in Monaco despite his five-second penalty.

Further down the field

Well the midfield is as unpredictable as ever, Carlos Sainz won the battle in Monaco but it really is there for the taking! Could we see Kimi Raikkonen bounce back after a few disappointing results, will Toro Rosso continue to impress or will Williams come out of nowhere and shock the field?
