Montreal is a bilingual city which can lead to misunderstanding, especially in restaurants. We strongly advise you against ordering "Moose au Chocolat."

TECHNICAL

"We will be running new front and rear wings to suit the low downforce nature of the track," comments Giorgio Ascanelli. "The front wing also requires new bargeboards and all these items will have their first track test on Friday. For now, we are having to trust in our wind tunnel data. Of course we have new braking solutions for this track which is the hardest on brakes, while also keeping some elements of our Monaco package as Montreal is also a soft tyre, bumpy circuit. There are further changes aimed at improving reliability."

HISTORICAL

"What would have been my first ever F1 race win as an engineer should have been Canada in 1991, when Nigel Mansell was leading here by a considerable margin," recalls Adrian Newey. The rest as they say is history*. At the time, it was very hard to take, because I thought, finally after years of trying with Leyton House and Williams, I was going to win one and then, just a quarter of a mile to the finish it all went wrong. I remember being extremely dejected."

*Mansell decided to wave to the crowd and according to some versions of the truth, the fact he was no longer changing gear upset the engine software and the car coasted to a halt.
