The eighth round of the 2023 F1 season is underway, with the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal hosting the Canadian Grand Prix.

After FP1 was essentially cancelled due to issues with the circuit's CCTV system, Lewis Hamilton topped FP2 as Mercedes clinched a one-two, thanks in part to the fact they logged their laps when the track was at its fastest.

A third and final one-hour practice session is scheduled to start at 12:30 local time (17:30 BST) on Saturday.

This will be followed by qualifying, which begins at 16:00 local time (21:00 BST), while Sunday's race is set to kick off at 14:00 local time (19:00 BST) and run for 70 laps.
