F1 2011: Grand Prix Du Canada

Sun Jun 05, 2011 8:25 pm

So after the legendary track of Monaco, the F1 circus comes to Montreal, one of the two races on the American continent with Interlagos.

The Canadian GP always hosts interesting races (probably because it's an old circuit, not a Tilkedrome) and this year's GP should be no exception.

The weather forecast is looking good, with clear skies on both Saturday and Sunday and temperatures around 23°/24°.

To refresh memories, here is a lap onboard with Luizzi: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=paeppQlkAag

And let's not forget this legendary video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KqZBJCFS_Ng

Last time I've been there was in mid April. I took those pictures when the track was already in preparation for the race:





I will not attend because I will be in France for the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Thank you for opening the thread!

Here's one to Kamui doing better than 5th place in Montreal.   

I hope this will be a good race.

Friend thinks this one will be a win for the red cars. Me thinks it will be the Red Bulls again.  
I hope Hammy will calm down.

 Wow!

Good grief man, learn a little geography about the rest of the world.

For your information, Canada and Brazil are on DIFFERENT CONTINENTS. You know, one is called "North America" and the other is called "South America". But even though they both share the same moniker of "America" that does not make them the American continent.

Depends on how you see it, but oh well ...

Anyway, I hope the race is fun, I hope Vettel loses some points so interest can increase, I hope Ferrari get a few points, and I hope no one suggests deletion when talking about F1, and I hope no mod feels offended whenevr there is some slight criticism.

Probably this post will get deleted too, I hope not, but I had to express myself since I wasn't given the chance in the other thread.

You might just get your wish, though. Montreal is a circuit that requires a good top speed performance. As good as the Red Bulls are fast over the fast corners because they're just so grippy, it's arguable that McLaren have a faster car in a straight line. I'd still like Vettel to win, but he's going to have a fight on his hands this weekend.

Agreed. We need a little break from V winning. At least for a race or two  
I'm thinking Lewis or Alonso.

and this was by whom the Cirquit was named after... -Let's hope for some RAIN
When I saw that on TV, I just couldn't believe it...

-Apart from that, my best memory from Montreal was the '84 GP (the last one I attended);
After the qualifiing session on Saturday, some friends and I sat down at our hotel-bar,
(The Hyatt if I remember right, -some claim it was a Hilton)
--and NELSON PIQUET was sitting there! Later we were joind by Theo Fabi.....
I didn't know that the pre-race regimen in those days included a visit to a bar, but we all had a very good time...
-and I guess that "liquid courage" worked....

Pedro de la Rosa will be driving in Sergio's place for the remainder of the Montreal race.

Pedro de la Rosa will take Sergio Perez’s place at Sauber for the rest of the Canadian Grand Prix weekend.
Perez was passed fit to race yesterday, following his crash in Monaco. But he reported he was feeling unwell after the first practice session this morning.
He said: “Of course I wanted to drive and I had no doubt I was alright. But apparently this is unfortunately not the case.

http://www.f1fanatic.co.uk/2011/06/1...-takes-sergio-perezs-place-canada/

Sad to hear this. I hope Sergio will get well soon.

I did not see Pedro in Monaco this year. He was not there.
I thought he was hired by McLaren as third driver.

Kamui and Pedro will make a good duet on the racing track.

Go Sauber!!!!

De la Rosa had 10-minute warning
By Jonathan Noble and Pablo Elizalde Friday, June 10th 2011, 23:08 GMT

...
"I was finishing lunch when Monisha Kaltenborn [Sauber CEO] showed up at McLaren and asked me, 'are you ready? It's very likely you will have to get in the car'," explained de la Rosa. "I checked my watch and it was ten to two and I said 'but there's 10 minutes to the start of the session!'

Vettel dominates the third practice session.
Pedro hit a barrier after a spectacular multiple spin right at the end of the session.
Edited:
==De La Rosa has had a big shunt at the end of the session. Having seen a replay it's not as bad as we first thought. He lost the rear end in turn four, slapped it against the barrier on the outside and then spun across the track and into the opposite barrier.==
He is only the 5th driver to crash at a chicane.

Lets see what qualifyings will bring in about less than two hours.
I would not be surprised to see the safety car out.

1 Vettel GER Red Bull 1'13.381

I would be really interested to get into the Vettel psychology about wanting to be the best and winning every race. There is something really different about him. He has the car, of course, but he has got something extra. Maybe he has a coach that really gets him to win, maybe some special psych program, I am curious to know. Would definitely make an interesting study!

Well maybe not the win yet, but certainly got himself another pole.

Another pole for Vettel, and most likely another victory as well.

By now I actually think that Webber has done a pretty good job to downgrade himself to no. 2 driver in the team.
Will Ferrari/Alonso actually be able to give RBR a run for their money tomorrow? not sure what updates ferrari are running this weekend. Alonso has been blistering fast during the start of the races lately, but RBR's race paste is just as good as their quali pace so not sure what to think of it.
When in doubt, flat out!

And McLaren gambled with the wet set-up. Could be a big fail if there's no rain... They could've easily been higher on the grid. But Ferrari is up there and the start is going to be interesting. A few SC probably too.

Actually the Ferrari has also a strong race pace. If someone is going to snatch the victory from Vettel it is Alonso unless we see some rain which can mix things up. Whatever the weather will be Vettel will not have a easy day tomorrow (or at least that is what I hope )

It is a big gamble they took and I just hope it pays off for them. Looking at the forecast and there's a 60% chance of rain, so it is a very big gamble. Interestingly though, Jenson Button said they aren't using a wet set up.

I'm guessing this time Hamilton is gonna get a serious penaly. He provoked a safety car outing with his stupid move, trying to continue with a broken rear suspension.

Thing is his suspension wasn't broken. So it's a bit impetuous of you to say he should get a penalty and its hard to say who was at fault. The stewards will decide that.

As a long time F1 fan and as a long time McLaren follower here's my take on Lewis.

He is a very gifted racer, he attacks and wants that victory. Since joining F1 he's been exciting to watch and a good role model for the kids who idolise him.

BUT.

He's got a big problem at the moment and IMHO it stems from his new entouarge, Ms Sherzinger and Puff Diddly (whatever he's calling himself these days). That it seems is where the "attitude" is coming from. He needs to ditch the hangers on and the arrogance with it, get back to basics, get his father back in there to keep him grounded. Seriously Lewis you're a racing driver, a very gifted racer but I hate to say this you're turning into a bit of a prat. You're NOT a hardcore rapper and you can't carry this new attitude off, it's losing you races, titles, and fans rapidly.

I want to see the "old" Lewis back, the attacking stylish committed racer in the car and the gentleman outside of it. Until that happens I'm still supporting the silver cars but Button is who I'm routing for.

As for the Vettel fanboys (and girls) calling foul on Hamilton (and for that matter all of the other drivers who have had prangs this year) don't forget how well your guy does in traffic. Last season when he didn't nail every pole and actually had to fight for position he ended up putting himself and others into the armco and gravel several times. He's great if he leads from the lights but other than that forget it. Stick him in a slower car on the 4th row and he's stuffed.

Agreed on Hammy's girlfriend and "new style" entourage. I see a different Hammy from the one I knew in his early years, not for the better unfortunately. Maybe he should go into a new career in film and show biz.

Back to the race and the rain... I wonder if it will ever start again. I still see so much rain!!! Looks like it might never stop!!

We are getting a lot of nice F1 stories from the BBC commentators! Now Johnny Herbert and stories of crashes... Safety cars checking on the track... "no more action for the next 30 minutes."

Quoting GBLKD (Reply 33):

Agreed. He's had a bad attitude all year. He needs to get himself sorted or make way for someone else like Paul di Riesta or whoever.

I want to see Massa up there, he's had a great weekend so far, let's hope nothing spoils it.

Does Formula One actually RACE in the rain, or only in the "damp". For heaven's sake, let them go and race, not parade around behind the safety car ad nauseum!!!!

Does anybody else find this absurd? What are "wet" tires for? If they wait much longer they'll have to come in for intermediates before they can start.

This is about to get really good. Just what Schumacher needed to get up with Vetel.
