The eighth and final Virtual GP saw F1 stars, young drivers, content creators, and celebrities line up at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve for a thrilling and entertaining race, delivered by Gfinity.
The Canadian track is a fan favourite thanks to its fast, flowing nature and the consistency of wheel-to-wheel racing it produces. The Virtual Canadian Grand Prix did not disappoint.
Williams driver George Russell was once again the class of the field as he took an imperious pole position by half a second and then dominated from the front.
Trying to apply the pressure behind him was Red Bull’s Alex Albon, but he couldn’t get close enough to the Williams to take advantage on the slipstream and DRS on Canada’s long straights.
It was the midfield where the overtaking, and collisions, came.
A turn 1 collision caught Anthony Davidson, Pierre Gasly, and YouTuber Tiametmarduk out.
The Australian content creator was in the wars with Davidson for most of the race. The two tangled into the final chicane, ending up facing the wrong way thanks to an overtake-gone-wrong.
They were not the only victims of the Wall of Champions though. F1 rookie Nicholas Latifi found himself planted in the famous barrier of his home race early on as well.
