Max Versatppen holds winning trophy from 2023 Canadian Grand Prix

2023 Canadian Grand Prix

Max Verstappen didn't have it all his way at the 2023 Canadian Grand Prix, but still delivered a lights-to-flag win to equal Ayrton Senna's tally of 41, and hand Red Bull its 100th F1 victory

A familiar name on the trophy and a familiar headline to the race but major milestones were achieved in Montreal that deserve that bit more recognition on a weekend that could have tripped Red Bull and Max Verstappen up.

From the CCTV-related loss of FP1 to the wet running on Saturday and an upgraded Aston Martin in the hands of Fernando Alonso on the front row alongside him, Verstappen headed into the race starting from pole position but with unknowns.

“To be honest I didn’t really know what to expect from the track or whatever – nothing to do with competitors, just for myself as well – because we changed the car quite a bit compared to Friday so I didn’t really know how it would feel today,” the championship leader said. “But luckily it went in the right direction.”
