After two boring F1 races in Imola and Monaco, it’s finally time for a track, where overtaking is possible, and racing wheel to wheel is exciting. Red Bull is slowly losing it’s dominance, after Verstappen struggled in Miami, almost lost the lead in Italy, and qualified only P6 in Monaco. Sergio Perez will be one of the talking points of this weekend. The Mexican driver signed a 2 year contract extension with Red Bull, to the surprise of many fans, who speculated on who could take the 2nd seat. Checo had an awful weekend in Monaco, and Italy, and many fans will expect him to perform much better in Canada, nowe having a secure position with the team.

Potential Strategy for the Canadian Grand Prix

The circuit named in memory of Gilles Villeneuve has been resurfaced, and the tarmac should be a bit more easy going for the tyres. In addition to the resurfacing, some of the curbs has been renewed. Some of them even have received the yellow and green colour in memory of Ayrton Senna. Despite having quite long pit distance, taking a pit stop is not too costly, as drivers skip the last turn, as well as emerge outside the turn 1, therefore offering a rather small time loss. This may be an incentive towards two stops, as long as rain doesn’t change the strategy completely
