Mark Webber: “I would say Montreal is one of the top five grands prix of the year because it’s a sensational atmosphere. It’s a really, really good venue and always provides an interesting grand prix there for whatever reason, and last year was no exception. It’s a low downforce track with long straights and high top speed, which is a different challenge.

"We’ll see how that unfolds, but we’re very confident the car should work well round there. I love driving the circuit; it’s a good one to get our teeth into, a little bit like a street circuit, so I’m looking forward to getting out there.”

Sebastian Vettel: “Montreal is a great city, everyone loves to go there – the atmosphere is always great. The track is on an island in the St. Lawrence river, and is a great challenge for the drivers. Like the track in Albert Park in Australia, the roads are public, so tyre wear can be high.

"There’s also a lot of wear on brakes, which can cause us a headache. Last year the race dragged on due to the heavy rain – but it’s a good place to go racing.”
