Yeah, Good point by Mitsuro Sano. But i think 'advantage' is for Mclaren because on straight's Mclaren will be rocket and again on turns it can be on same level of downforce without comprising straight line speed like other teams will have to do. Mclaren even has option to run more rear wing thus more grip then rest of the field i.e. Straight line speed similar to other teams + enhanced cornering speed.

Only problem now is gap between this race and turkey is enough for the top team to turn f-duck into f-duct ''hmm''

Weather forecast

The Gilles Villeneuve circuit on the Ile Notre Dame welcomes the sport back with open arms for the eighth round of a pulsating 2010 world championship season. While fans around the world are - perhaps understandably - still talking about the great race at Istanbul and that crash, the teams are already setting up for a challenging weekend of racing.

A substantial 995 millibar low pressure system deposited a lot of rain over Quebec yesterday, but is now sliding away slowly to the north-east as more stable conditions come in from the west for a time. On Thursday, a weaker low (1010 mb) will come in from the west, bringing rain, but that is expected to clear overnight.

Saturday and Sunday will see a shift as much warmer air moves towards the south-east corner of Canada from the United States, feeding energy to another less intense area of low pressure.

Friday is expected to see the best of the weather as the drivers return to action on the island circuit. Both practice sessions will be dry and mainly sunny. There will be some cloud around but nothing to be too concerned about, and a maximum temperature of 26 degrees Celsius.

The increasing heat will continue into Saturday, but with that comes a slight risk of afternoon showers. Final practice looks good at the moment with some good early sunshine and partial cloud cover. Overhead, conditions could become increasingly cloudy through the afternoon with the chance of a heavy shower and a top temperature of 28 degrees.

Sunday sees the shower risk remain in place, as the mercury climbs very close to 30 Celsius. It is likely to be cloudy with only occasional glimpses of the sun from the outset, becoming overcast towards the afternoon.

So once again we are set to see a grand prix weekend punctuated by areas of low pressure sweeping through from west to east. As ever, the mathematical models will evolve considerably over the coming days to produce a more complete picture for the weekend


Next update on Thursday

Still, 2007 was dry and that was without a doubt the best race in Montreal for me.

Canada is always good. Wet or dry. On a dry track the race is good, but on a wet track it's even better. With the walls always close. Who do you think is going to hit the wall?
