My pre-race prediction is a bold one - I think today's race winner is starting on the second row of the grid. Carlos Sainz or Lewis Hamilton, take your pick. Think this race has some drama left in it. Let's see how accurate a call that is!

The drama today might well come from the Red Bull and Ferrari car not starting at the front. Sergio Perez (14th) and Charles Leclerc (19th) have it all to do. I'd imagine both of them have the pace to fight back to a top six finish but fighting back through the field can sometimes be a messy business.

After several days of rain in Canada the weather looks a lot more stable today. An hour away from lights out and it's 19 degrees Celsius (66F) and there's barely a cloud in the sky. Feeling in the paddock this morning is that this is Verstappen's race to lose. Start will be fascinating - surely he will yield to Alonso if the Spaniard is as aggressive off the line as he said he would be?
