this track is very cruel to any fragility in a car. I still remember yellow Jordan of Frentzen hitting wall hard (1999) after the brakes failure. And let me think ''hmm'' the brakes can give hard time to RB. I think that in terms of speed RB should be on top of the Mclaren due to aero (despite Ranault engine) :blush: but my personal big question: will they finish?
Further the grid - Renault and Mercedes will fight again Merc's got the engine, Renault seems to have good aero.
Ferrari? It is difficult now to suggest. It seems that the speed is there. at least sometimes, but not on the first laps.

Yeah, with heavy fuel I wouldn't be surprised to see a few guys really backing off near the end.

Helmut Marko has said that Red Bull will not introduce their F-Duct until Valencia :confused:

Good. This race is brilliant even in the dry. Can't remember a dull race at this track and that has to be a record. Let the rain come at Canada's wannabe brother, Valencia :p

Also, Ferrari test driver Marc Gene wrote in El Mundo: "We must applaud the British team. They did a great race and the one-two was no accident. Their improvement has been remarkable and their jump has surprised everybody."

McLaren are the team to beat for this season now I think, a few people working there have said they still have a few upgrades in the pipeline with the biggest coming at Silverstone

O Canada, the race at Monday 2am............. :zz:
Thankfully that Monday is actually a public holiday :D

McLaren are the team to beat IMO, as the Red Bulls will struggle with reliability and teamwork. It should be a fun race, Canada always is.

In Belgium the race is around 6 o' clock in the evening. Which is quite awesome. F1 fills your whole TV evening then :p

One of my fav races, Canada is like monza and monaco in one. 330 km/h with walls very close,and thats why it brings us great racing every year (except 09), i would really like to know who will be in the wall of Champions or other walls, really looking forward to that, im sure one of the rookies will kiss the wall

I'm thinking we might see Mercedes or Renault have their breakthrough in Canada, as sometimes the 2nd or 3rd tier cars can like the low-downforce tracks. (Think about BMW in Canada 2008, Toro Rosso at Monza 2008, Force India at Spa 2009).

forgot to say its a killer for the brakes, so 1 RBR will have brake problems. And the GP always throws a surprise podium... maybe schumi will be on podium

that wont be too big a surprise actually, if you consider that nico and robert already have scored podium. Someone like Sutil could be a surprise

The result in Canada is always unpredictable. Coulthard on the podium in 2008 and Wurz in 2007. It is my favorite track. I cannot remember one Canadian GP that was boring.
For this year, I think McLare has a good change of beating Red Bull. They are awesome down the straights. Even in Turkey Hamilton's topspeed was 321 compared to Vettel 313. It has been said here, the brakes will be a major problem. Even more this year with the heavy fuel load.
I also think one of the keyplayers will be eliminated one way or another. Hitting the Wall of Champions, for instance. Someone like Senna or Trulli of Massa. And I think Michael Schumacher can score a podium here. With his experienced head, I think he will stay out of trouble. And in Canada, that's enough.

I'd rather say Petrov than Sutil. Tbh, I don't expect a podium from those two. Just saying I'd rather think we'll see Petrov on the podium than Sutil. Sutil's dropping back, Petrov isn't. He's only getting stronger.

Paul Di Resta will not drive during friday practice. According to Andy Stevenson (Force India's teammanager) he will not be driving for the team during F1 weekends till the European GP in Valencia at the end of August.
