VERSTAPPEN CAN INFLICT MORE DAMAGE TO LECLERC'S TITLE CHANCES TONIGHT: Red Bull driver Max Verstappen will be on pole position later tonight for the Canadian Grand Prix with Alpine’s Fernando Alonso a surprise second. It is the first time the 40-year-old former world champion will be on the front-row grid since 2012.
