Canada boasts a long history in F1 with 56 editions preceding this weekend's race. Lewis Hamilton boasts a record seven victories here, level with Michael Schumacher.

He would do well to be anywhere near the podium this week given the form of rival cars and even his own teammate, George Russell, who has finished between third and fifth in all eight races so far this season.

Red Bull have started to exert control over the season standings with Max Verstappen top of the driver charts, tailed by Sergio Perez, and Christian Horner's team storming away at the top of the constructor standings.

Ferrari have fallen off the pace and will need to dig deep to keep in touch with their closest rivals ahead of the summer break.

RadioTimes.com brings you the complete guide to the Canadian Grand Prix 2022 including start time, dates and TV details, as well as our analysis of the big storylines to come.

Canadian Grand Prix preview

1. Red Bull extending dominance

Red Bull's car has always competed from the front in 2022, but early DNFs caused by issues beyond the control of Verstappen and Perez masked just how rapid their beast actually was.

Eight races into the season, Red Bull have six wins to their name and a total of 11 podiums overall. Not only has Verstappen proven his credentials as a bona fide champion capable of maturely seeing races through to completion, Perez has joined the party.

The season could very quickly slip away from everyone else if Red Bull maintain their form. This weekend could see them launch further ahead.

2. Ferrari's decline

For all the hype surrounding Ferrari following the first few races, their two wins (eight podiums) in eight races feels fairly underwhelming.

They have suffered five retirements between their two drivers so far, and while top-four finishes are coming on a regular basis, they have fallen in behind Red Bull and currently can't find an answer to their pace.

It's still a massive step up to even be speaking about Ferrari in the same sentence as Red Bull, but their expectations must be tempered. They could find themselves being caught by Mercedes in the near future.

3. George Russell's time to shine

There has been a glorious consistency to Russell's season that stands him in such a good place for the future. Eight finishes between third and fifth, without a DNF, in the third fastest car on the grid is a superb achievement for a young driver stepping into a quick machine for the first time on a regular basis.

Russell has every chance of winning a race in 2022. All he can do is keep smashing in the laps, keep his focus, and pounce on any opportunities that come up.

Having built a strong foundation, Russell will be looking for a second-place finish or better as his stock marches higher.
