Why was Red Bull suddenly much less dominant than usual in F1’s Canadian Grand Prix?

Edd Straw, Mark Hughes and Scott Mitchell-Malm discuss this and more on the latest episode of The Race F1 Podcast, touching upon the specifics of Circuit Gilles Villeneuve that were holding the RB19 back, Sergio Perez’s anonymous performance and the impact of Aston Martin’s upgrade.

Also discussed are George Russell’s costly crash, Alex Albon’s weekend of wins in an upgraded Williams and Lando Norris’ contentious sanction for “unsportsmanlike behaviour”.

Finally, the panel answers questions from The Race Members’ Club – including whether Red Bull should give Max Verstappen a run in both Perez’s RB19 and the AlphaTauri AT04 for benchmarking purposes, whether Haas is at serious risk of finishing last and whether Charles Leclerc is given an “easy ride” in terms of public perception relative to Ferrari team-mate Carlos Sainz.
