Lets hope someone who has not won this year win a race for once! i.e. Button, Barrichello, Kimi, Montoya, Webber  Smile I like them all however when between Ferrari and Reno....I will favour the French team. Is the Indianapolis Grandprix not on before the Canadian Grandprix? Hopefully the US grandprix will be better than last year

I leave for Montreal tomorrow morning for the race, and I've got my suitcase full of Ferrari gear, so here's hoping Schumacher takes a close win over Raikkonen and Alonso fails to finnish! To anyone else going- the support races this year look pretty boring, while in the last 4 years they had historic can am and historic grand prix cars (the coolest thing I've seen in a long time), this year it's just "feeder series" such as star mazda, formula BMW, and the ubiqitous Ferrari challenge.

Fri Jun 23, 2006 7:29 pm

Bernie Ecclestone has declared that the United States Grand Prix is not important to Formula 1, and that he will not go out of his way to secure the race's future.

"It does not matter to Formula 1 if there is no grand prix in the US," Ecclestone told The Times newspaper.

"What do we get from America? Aggravation, that’s about all.

"If you say ‘good morning’ over there and it’s five past 12, you end up with a lawsuit.

"We have never got any sponsors out there.

"The television has never taken off; we have more viewers in Malta than over there."

Ecclestone's comments came as he prepared to travel to the States to negotiate the future of the Indianapolis race.

The contract to stage the US GP at Indianapolis expires after this year.

"If they want to continue having a round of the Formula 1 World Championship over there, I am happy to talk to them, which is what I will do when I get there," he added.

"But I am not prepared to subsidise a race in America."

F1 has long had a chequered relationship with the United States.

The world championship returned to America in 2000 after a nine-year absence.

During that period, the domestic NASCAR series had boomed, diminishing interest in single-seater racing.

It was hoped that F1's partnership with the world famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway would capture the public imagination.

F1's cause has been harmed by some controversial US races.

There was outrage in 2002 when Michael Schumacher handed the race victory to team-mate Rubens Barrichello at the finish line.

Then last season saw just six cars contesting the race after all the Michelin teams withdrew due to concerns over tyre safety on the circuit's fast, banked final turn.

Despite Ecclestone's comments, there remains a belief that any series purporting to be a truly global championship requires a presence in the United States.

Yes its a rerun. Quali should be around 5-6pm UK time if it were to be shown live.

I can't remember the last time ITV showed live quali for Canada, it must disrupt quality family Saturday night entertainment.

Another question. On race weekends, test drivers usually top the testing times. This is forgiveable as the race drivers rarely venture out of their garages.

However, on testing weekends, there is still the odd test driver topping the times sheet. Why are these test drivers not race drivers? The likes of Kubica, De la Rosa and Davidson are examples. These guys obviously put 100% into the testing. But do the guys in race seats not put 100% in to the testing or are they just not as good? Obviously they are good, as they are the guys in the race seats, but could the testing guys replace them??

Sorry that question was worded so badly  Smile

Test drivers on race weekends don't need to worry about having an engine which lasts for two weeks so they are in a position to push it on friday. They collect data and run various set ups to better place the race drivers. Essentially they do all the firday work.
As for test weekends you will usuaully find that a race driver and a test driver are running different programs, hence the difference in lap times. These guys are testers for a reason. A) because they are young and lack F1 experience and will probably step upto a full time race drive IE Kubica, Kovalanien and Davidson or B) they are former race drivers trying to stay in touch with the F1 community trying to get a new race drive IE Wurz, De la Rosa and Gene

From: http://www.itv-f1.com/News_Article.aspx?PO_ID=36384

Alonso cruises to yet another pole
Fernando Alonso's stranglehold on the 2006 world championship became tighter still after he dominated qualifying for the Canadian Grand Prix, taking his fifth pole position in a row.

The points leader was fastest in all three sessions, with his first flying lap in the decisive third segment six-tenths up on the field, and a full 1.4 seconds quicker than title rival Michael Schumacher's best effort at the time.

Alonso couldn't improve on his 1m14.942s benchmark when he came out for a second attempt, but in the event he didn't need to.

It looked like Kimi Raikkonen was destined for second place until Giancarlo Fisichella stepped up to complete an all-Renault front row in the dying moments of qualifying, just over two-tenths slower than his team-mate.

Raikkonen had to settle for third.

The paddock is awash with rumours that Jarno Trulli is poised to put pen to paper on a contract extension with Toyota, so it was fitting that the Italian shook off his recent bad luck and claimed a season-best fourth on the grid.

Schumacher ended up fifth, his second flying lap shaving only three-tenths off his earlier time and leaving him still just over a second adrift of Alonso.

Even if the Ferrari is carrying more fuel, the time gap and the presence of three cars between Schumacher and Alonso will surely be unsettling for the former champion.

The Williams garage will have been an uncomfortable place after qualifying.

There will doubtless be delight at Nico Rosberg's sensational sixth place - his best grid position since taking third in Malaysia - but Mark Webber was furious with his rookie team-mate for apparently blocking him in the first session.

That left Webber 17th, and out.

It has been a tough weekend for Rosberg, for whom Montreal is a brand new track.

Gearbox problems meant that he only had 10 laps in Friday practice, so to get into the top ten was a superb achievement.

Rosberg was on the verge of being knocked out in Q1 until he rustled up a last minute flying lap that even included a spot of minor wall-banging.

Unfortunately he then incurred the wrath of his team-mate, who will start from the bottom quarter of the field for the second race in succession.

No such problems for Jenson Button this time.

Although the Hondas are not frontrunners in Canada, both Button and Rubens Barrichello made it into the final session and will start eighth and ninth respectively, between Juan Pablo Montoya and Felipe Massa.

It is the first time that Button has out-qualified Barrichello since Imola.

Surprisingly - and disappointingly for the home crowd - neither BMW Sauber made it into the top ten.

Jacques Villeneuve only needed to find another 0.019s to reach Q3, but instead he will start 11th.

This at least gives him the option of a heavy fuel strategy - a plan that has worked well for BMW this year.

Team-mate Nick Heidfeld took 13th, behind Christian Klien in the best of the Red Bulls, but ahead of Ralf Schumacher.

Starting grid for the Canadian GP

1. ALONSO Renault
2. FISICHELLA Renault
3. RAIKKONEN McLaren
4. TRULLI Toyota
5. M SCHUMACHER Ferrari
6. ROSBERG Williams
7. MONTOYA McLaren

Hey sorry you missed the grandprix. Kimi was second all the way until the second last corner on the second last lap when he skided off just enough to let Schumcaher go right by. The commentators believed it was mainly Rosbergs fault however Montoya did get in the way abit. No big crashes into champions wall, except for Montoya later in the race.

Nice to see Coulthard still has what it takes when he passed Button!

This weekend was better if we compare with Silverstone...

I am really sad for Villeneuve, very bad accident again  Sad

Cangs. to Balonso. Good driving again from him  Sad

Schumi was also very lucky..

For Kimi..... He is most unlucky person in the world I guess

Yea i know. I really like Villeneuve now. However did you see the way he went off. It looked like he went to overtake Ralph Schumacher on the corner and lost traction on the little 'marble' like bits of rubber.

What I have to ask it....what the hell was Ralph still driving for!?!?!?! He had gone off at the hairpin twice, pitted a good few times, and even had a problem, all of which put him a lap or two behind. So why carry on if he knew he had a problem that slowed him by 5 seconds a lap!?!?!

That red car looks a bit crap.

Looks? A bit crap?  Smile

Anyway, we shouldn't speculate Bill. As the old saying goes, a bad carpenter will find a way to blame his tools.  Wink

Just got back from Montreal, another great weekend (my 8th in a row up there). My god, was it hot yesterday! There was a slight breeze and that was the only thing that kept me from melting, but it was certainly one of the 2 hottest races I've ever been to. Anyway, I was quite confused why Schumacher went for the extra-long 1st stint when it clearly compromised his qualifying laps, I guess Ferrari didn't count on getting stuck behind the mobile chicane Toyota. Those guys really have no clue how to make a car quick in a race. Trulli has been quick in the Toyotas over the last 2 years in qualies, but he ALWAYS slides backwards in the race, and at the restart towards the end he let Alonso build a 4 second lead before they even crossed the line. I sit in one of the grandstands at the hairpin before the backstraight, and you guys should have seen the amount of rubber buildup around the outside of the racing line, it was so thick that every time a car went a little wide, the driver would lose all traction and a bunch of cars nearly hit the wall, including Webber on his cool down lap after the race while he was trying to pick up "clag" to bring the car's weight up. In fact, that is exactly what happened to Kimi when Michael passed him with 2 laps left, he went a tad bit wide on the exit and I could hear his traction control struggling with very little traction, so the Ferrari passed him easily, which certainly made me happy! I'll put up some pictures later and link to them...

Glad you had a good time.

I just watched the race - what an interesting race to watch. It's a shame for Raikkonen, he really did loose out badly in those pit stops.

I was most impressed with Speed's coverage...a lot better than CBS!
