The inside line on the Canadian GP

Michael Schumacher has won the Canadian Grand Prix five times and is again his usual 8-11 to win the race. While acknowledging that Ferrari will start the weekend favourites, it is worth a close look at some of the Michelin runners

The inside line on the Canadian GP

Michelin has done a strong job this year and, in Canada, the high speeds and heavy braking means that heat durability is an issue. The Michelins are at their best in hot weather and if Saturday/Sunday is sunny, some of the odds make interesting reading.

Monaco winner Juan Montoya, for instance, is 10-1 to repeat his success, and this on a track where the BMW engine should be in its element. Ralf Schumacher, remember, won this race for Williams-BMW in 2001, overhauling his brother en route. If you fancy he might do it again, you can have 16-1. Or, if you prefer McLaren, Kimi Raikkonen is available at 11-2 and David Coulthard at 10-1.

Jaguar and Mark Webber have turned in some strong qualifying performances this year, the engine has long been under-rated and this is North America, where a strong showing would go down especially well. Nobody is suggesting that they will compromise their race strategy with an absurd fuel load, but if they qualify a little lighter, Webber is 66-1 for the pole. A daft punt? Very probably, but 6-4 for points is certainly not and the optimistic among you might even look at 20-1 for a podium.

The dual forecast Schumacher/Raikkonen odds have taken a tumble recently and you will only get 10-3 if Michael and Kimi finished first and second at Montreal in any order. I would say that Michael/Juan Pablo Montoya is worth serious consideration at 8-1. And so, if it does turn into a Michelin extravaganza, is Juan Pablo/Ralf, either way round, at 40-1!

Joey Mawson made waves in the middle of the last decade, beating future Haas Formula 1 driver Mick Schumacher - among other highly-rated talents - to the 2016 German F4 title. A run in F1's feeder GP3 category only caused his career to stall, but now back in Australia Mawson's S5000 title success has set that to rights
