Red Bull's Max Verstappen beat out Ferrari's Carlos Sainz to win the Canadian Grand Prix at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve track in Montreal on Sunday.

Verstappen extended his lead in the standings with his sixth victory in nine races during the 2022 season. The 24-year-old Dutchman also recorded his first Formula 1 win in Canada.

Meanwhile, Mercedes legend Lewis Hamilton rounded out the podium.

"It's quite overwhelming to get this third place. It's been such a battle this year, but we continue to stay so vigilant and focused," Hamilton said.

He added: "They're a little bit too fast for us at the moment, but we're getting closer, so we gotta keep pushing."

Sainz's teammate, Charles Leclerc, finished fifth after starting from P19 due to multiple penalties leading up to the race.
