Formula One World Driving Championship:

Last Grand Prix: Sunday June 4th: Spanish Grand Prix, Catalunya, Barcelona:

Another romp for Holland’s Max Verstappen! Like he did in Monaco, he led every lap from the pole easily for his 3rd win in a row, 5th win of the season! He was warned about exceeding track limits, but that was the only flaw in his performance. Great outing for Mercedes! Both on the podium! Lewis Hamilton 2nd, George Russell 3rd with those car upgrades showing improvement. Sergio Perez in the other Red Bull was 4th, with Carlos Sainz 5th for Ferrari in his homeland contest. Nice recovery for Canada’s Lance Stroll after that Monaco DNF, a 6th at Cataluna, one ahead of Aston Martin ‘mate Fernando Alonso to score points.

F-1 Points into Montreal: Max Verstappen leads Driver points by 53 over Red Bull team mate Sergio Perez. Red Bull on top of Constructors by 135 over Mercedes. Aston Martin slips to 3rd, 18 back of Mercedes!

Last Race: Sunday June 4th: Streets of Detroit, Michigan:

Moved off of Bell Isle – incredibly narrow and bumpy! Yellow-fest navigated successfully by Chip Ganassi’s Alex Palou, the pole sitter for his 2nd win of the season. Good fighting at the end! Will Power wound up 2nd, with Felix Rosenqvist rounding out the podium in 3rd. Canada’s Devlin DeFrancesco finished in13th.
