This weekend sees Formula One head to Montreal for the 2019 Canadian Grand Prix as Mercedes look to continue their fierce form after eeking out victory in Monaco a fortnight ago.

That form therefore makes this race crucial for the title hopes of both Ferrari and Red Bull, whilst the midfield battle continues to build amongst several teams.

Three Pointers

  • Several teams are set for power unit updates so expect the competitive picture to become clear this weekend, with Williams one team to watch out for as this track could determine their season.
  • With consistent weather forecast throughout the weekend, tyre temperature is going to be key in qualifying to extract the maximum out of the softs.
  • Victory here would see Lewis Hamilton tie with Michael Schumacher for most Canadian GP wins at seven apiece.
