@xjr15jaaag – I wouldn’t be so sure that he’d have won had he not retired. In the first stint Hamilton was considerably faster, reducing the gap from over five seconds to less than two when Nico pitted, and that […]

You get it @xjr15jaaag: very few understand that.
Your daily digest of F1 news, views, features and more.
Wolff: “Racing drivers will never be friends because this is not going to the weekends doing a little bit of fun racing. This is their job and this is a very competitive environment. Everything that has been said about the great friendship is probably a nice story but it isn’t actually how it is in reality.”
Hamilton: “Of course being second and not doing as good a job in qualifying makes it harder but I’ve recently had a good discussion with the strategy guys and there are opportunities. For me, it’s really important to understand them before I go into the race and even more than I have understood them in the past.”
Boullier: “I tell all at McLaren: yes we are a super team – one of the most successful teams in F1 history – but we are not today. We should also look at others and analyse why they are successful – and look at ourselves asking if we do everything necessary.”
“After successfully winning the race to get a new Formula 1 team on the grid in the near future, Gene Haas spoke exclusively to NBCSN’s Leigh Diffey today in Montreal about his plans for Haas Formula in 2016.”
“The city will be putting $12.4 million toward the 10-year deal, but will be responsible for major improvements to the facilities at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, which could cost an additional $32 million, Coderre said.”
Booth: “I actually flew back home on the Sunday so had to just restrict myself to one or two glasses on the plane. Even the mechanics and the staff couldn’t party that hard because they were all packing the garage and the motorhome away until 1am.”
Felt the need to do a personal message just to clear up all this talk regarding my accent… 😊http://t.co/gReb0uBVPB

Gilles Villeneuve circuit is about getting your car as close as the wall to get the perfect line. Good feeling :-) pic.twitter.com/A5fD4sHIyk

Comment of the day
After a thrilling qualifying session yesterday, @xjr15jaaag is looking forward to what will hopefully turn out to be an equally exciting race.
I reckon this is going to be a great race; You will have an epic battle for the lead between the 2 Mercedes cars, and then a monumental battle for 3rd between Vettel, Ricciardo, Bottas, Massa and Alonso.
Further down the field, I am anticipating the Marussias getting stuck in with the Saubers, and then a scrap between the Force Indias, Kimi, Grosjean and the Toro Rossos for the lower reaches of the top 10.

No F1 Fanatic birthdays today
On this day in F1
Ludovico Scarfiotti died on this day in 1968 while practicing for a hillclimbing event in Germany.
Although the Turinese driver never competed in a full season of Formula One, he remains the last Italian to have won the Italian Grand Prix driving a Ferrari, which he did in 1966, driving a V12-engined 312.
@xjr15jaaag That’s not the point.
Many things are not specifically written in the rules, yet the FIA issues instructions all the time to the teams.
For instance, from Spain onwards, there’s a technical […]
WilliamB commented on the post, Why Webber’s greatest misfortune was to be Vettel’s team mate 3 years, 3 months ago
@xjr15jaaag – True, but the Toro Rosso did tend to be quick in the wet, as was proved in Italy a year later. Although yes, China did herald the discovery of a star, and Buemi had plenty of time to perform, […]
It’s stupid the design direction, though @xjr15jaaag. The solution is obvious: ground effect, no front wing – I’ve said this time and time again. Then there’d be no need for DRS at all, and there’d still be overtaking.
maarten.f1 commented on the post, Massa in, Maldonado out and Bottas stays at Williams in 2014 3 years, 4 months ago
@xjr15jaaag I think that’s impossible to tell. They could get lucky with next year’s car and be competitive. I still think Williams could’ve (and should’ve!) been much more competitive last year. That car was able […]
@xjr15jaaag – First, there has to be an available seat for the driver to fill. Then they need to make contact with the team and convince them that they are the right driver to fill that seat.
Being in GP2 is no […]
Of course Hamilton also graduated to F1 in 2007 @xjr15jaaag before Vettel did! I would also say that staying with a top team for 6 seasons before moving (from having the outright fastest car in his last season […]
