Formula 1 travels to Montreal this weekend for the sixth round of the new season. Here's how you can watch the 2023 Canadian Grand Prix.

Red Bull's Max Verstappen goes to Montreal with an extended lead of 53 points following his fifth win of the 2023 F1 season in Barcelona a fortnight ago.

Lewis Hamilton is only fourth in the standings behind Verstappen, Red Bull's Sergio Perez and Aston Martin driver Fernando Alonso, but he is the joint-most successful driver at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve with seven career wins.
