Canada used to be one off the better races but in the last few years it's got very dull which is a real shame. I guess we can expect another Mercedes win, unless something unexpected happens to one or both of them :rolleyes:

They get transported to the wrong race, on the other side of the world maybe ?

Maybe a well timed shower of rain just on Mercedes, like you get in cartoons, a big black cloud following only them ;)

Loose their luggage?
Loosing steering wheel in critical moment is much more exiting. Just ask Kimi how he felt when team tried to get him moving, and he had no steering wheel attached. His legendary stoicism vaporized pretty quickly.

Ferrari is bringing new updates, and Vettel was assured, that Alonso is not replacing him. At least not any time soon. All is good then? Mattis is however cationing, do not expect miracles.

GP247 / Mekies:
Former FIA man turned Ferrari sporting boss, Mekies told Auto Hebdo, “We have not progressed as much as we would have liked since the end of the winter tests.
“In terms of absolute performance, we are behind everywhere. We need to improve in the way we manage our aero along with the mechanical grip and our tyres.”
We need to improve means we are not there yet... where I live forecast for Sunday is for 28 deg C, sunny, no wind. Hard to say what to do. Outside by the lake it might be good choice to spend some time, counting sheeps on the sky.

Canadian Grand Prix preview: Why Ferrari must step up in Montreal

Article from the Montreal Gazette. Also, IMO, really good graphic of track showing cornering speeds, gear, etc.

"To add to the sense of occasion, this weekend marks the 40th anniversary of Gilles Villeneuve’s maiden win in F1 at the first Grand Prix to be held at the Île Norte-Dame track that today bears his name."
Oops, just realized this article is from last year. Comment about graphic still applies!

Interesting tyre choices, by the look of it most are expecting the medium to be the race tyre

Yea, there are always some critters there.
Given the way this race has been in recent years some of those critters showing up might be about the most interesting thing to happen there.
