F1 Canadian GP qualifying - Start time, how to watch & more

Fernando Alonso topped the Friday practice times for Aston Martin ahead of the Formula 1 Canadian Grand Prix. Here’s how and when to watch qualifying.

On a mixed opening day in Montreal, rain showers hit both practice sessions to produce a shaken-up order, with Aston Martin's Alonso taking the top spot in FP2 ahead of Mercedes driver George Russell.
Lance Stroll completed an encouraging day for Aston Martin in third, with Monaco GP winner Charles Leclerc taking fourth for Ferrari.
But it was a difficult day for Red Bull and Max Verstappen, who completed just four laps in FP2 due to an ERS issue with his power unit that prevented him from running.
