Also a reminder to British viewers that Qualifying will be broadcast live on BBC2, not BBC1.

The Canadian GP is one of my favourite races on the schedule, the Canadian and Brazilian Grands Prix are always interesting races that do not need wet weather to make it exciting. I think Force India could do rather well, their car was a top 5 car at Monza last year in low downforce configuration - and this years car is only a evolution of last years car - which could bode well for Montreal. If the F-Duct system is effective, then Sutil could score a top five finish.

Don't expect anything from Ferrari here

Alonso: "I hope things will go better from Valencia, where the F10 should appear in a very advanced B specification."

I actually find it very dull in general, unless there's a crash or other incidents. It's a track that shouldn't see F1 anymore in my opinion.

Yeah, it looks like my opinion is totally different from yours, what can I do ? :lol:

Here are the tracks that I consider to make races exciting or at least not usually boring: Australia, Malaysia, China, Turkey, GBR (Silverstone), Germany (I prefer Hockenheim rather than Nürburgring), Belgium, Italy (Monza), Japan (Suzuka). Brazil.

The tracks I really don't like: Bahrain, Spain (Barcelona), Monaco (sorry for that), Canada, Europe (Valencia), Hungary, Singapore, Abu Dhabi.

Hmm, you know something that I don't know ? :huh: If Lewis wins it, I'll like it :lol:

As I see it, the only good overtaking place is the first corner (the chicane is too dangerous and you can hit the wall of champions if you try something overly optimistic there).

There are three overtaking opportunities at least:

- Into the first corner
- Down into the hairpin
- At the final chicane

BBC's Jonathan Legard on Twitter wrote:McLaren upgrades include new front wing and rear wing for Canada. For Silverstone though, Hamilton and Button will pretty much have a new car. New front suspension for both drivers at Renault who are expecting to mix it with Mercedes. Team feel Kubica oculd be stronger than in Monaco

Dry on Friday, dry on Saturday, but...

Things are set to change on Sunday. We are set for an overcast start to the day and the situation won't get any better as we approach the race start.

A second band of rain will track slightly further north than on Saturday, bringing Montreal much more into the target zone. Showers are expected - some of these will be heavy - by mid-morning, leading to a damp or wet start to the race.

The rain is then set to clear, but it will take all afternoon for this to happen. The current thinking is that we'll have a wet start to the race but with drying track conditions towards the end. With little or no sunshine on offer the temperature gauge will suffer as the mercury drops to 22 degrees Celsius.
