Mercedes bid to bridge power gap at Canada GP

Hey Ferrari, the CN Tower is in Toronto, not Montreal

Mercedes engines are used not only by the factory race team, but also by the Force India and Williams teams.

With six wins and six poles, Hamilton's love affair with Montreal has endured for more than a decade and shows no sign abating.

That is your look ahead to the possible stories to follow this weekend in Canada.

While Ferrari and Red Bull will have fresh engines, Mercedes will go with the same power unit.

Droves of race fans and drivers will soon be Montreal-bound to enjoy Grand Prix weekend, but one of the most notable vehicle companies seems to be a little confused about which city they're actually heading to. "It's a circuit where overtaking is relatively straightforward, speeds are high and the cars are pushed to their limits".

Wolff said what was particularly frustrating was that Mercedes had the pace to win the Melbourne race.

F1 is back in North American for the Canadian GP at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, a 2.709-mile or 4.361-kilometer power-intensive circuit, is set to be faster this weekend with the addition of a 3rd DRS zone and the testing of new upgrades by the racing teams.

The big loser could well be McLaren who have been the slowest in a straight line throughout this year and are unlikely to make up that deficit in other areas.

Like Mercedes, both Red Bull and Ferrari are expected to use new engines, but Red Bull technical boss Adrian Newey downplayed expectations, notably because Monaco victor Daniel Ricciardo faces grid penalties for other technical power-unit changes.

Hamilton will know he and Ferrari remain a serious threat in what is expected to be a far more entertaining affair than the tiresome procession in Monte Carlo, even if Kimi Raikkonen faces a potential distraction after a Canadian waitress filed a lawsuit against him for touching her inappropriately in 2016.

Racing begins Friday with two practice sessions, followed by qualifying on Saturday and the race on Sunday afternoon.

"After six races, we can see that we are in a stronger position in both championships than we were 12 months ago", said Wolff.

Stroll nonetheless salvaged eighth in Azerbaijan, the team's only points finish so far this year, and reckons he has stepped up himself compared to last season. "We're looking forward to the challenge".
