The Canadian Grand Prix is hosted at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal. The circuit sees the teams looking for minimum drag settings, also exposing excessive brake wear.
The Canadian circuit is little used, so it tends to start very green, which makes tyre selection a little tricky. Add the emphasis on low drag, which will see the teams with their lowest downforce levels of the year, and it is clear that mechanical grip is vital. Those who have the most powerful engines will be able to add downforce without becoming vulnerable on the straights, which is why this is a circuit that rewards power.
The long, fast straights and big stops make this place tough on brakes: teams run with maximum cooling here, and the softest tyres (from the hard end of the range) that they think will do the distance.
