Only one tire compound ---------------------- Goodyear brought 1500 tires to Montreal, but only in the 'C' dry compound and the Aquatro rain pattern.

As at Monaco, Mark Blundell is driving the second McLaren; Ron Dennis has said that he will announce his driver choice for the remainder of the season after Montreal, though he is not known to have contacted any other drivers.

Boullion confirmed for rest fo season ------------------------------------- Sauber have confirmed Jean-Christophe Boullion as their second driver for the remainder of the 1995 season. He will also continue as the Williams test driver.

Pacific has new mirror design ----------------------------- Bertrans Gachot's Pacific car has a new mirror design, intended to cut down turbulence and drag, and improve the downforce.

Jordan to receive new Peugeot engines ------------------------------------- Peugeot is to deliver a new evolution of its V10 engine to Jordan for testing in late June, hopefully in time to make its race debut at the French GP on 02 July.
