50 years of GRAND PRIX DU CANADA (1967 – 2017)

This year marks the 50th year of CANADIAN GRAND PRIX.  So the muncipalty of Montreal released stamps of 5 F1 Drivers who conquered the Canadian GP in each of these 5 decades.

With Michael Schumacher winning a record 7 races here and GILLES VILLENEUVE being the first Canadian F1 driver to win a GP that too at his home the circuit is named after him.

Out of the current drivers on the grid  Lewis Hamilton has the maximum wins (5) including his maiden F1 win.

Lewis also has a unique record here. He either finishes on the podium or doesn’t finish the race.

Preview of the CANADIAN GP 2017,

Mercedes especially LEWIS HAMILTON is the one to watch out for in this particular race especially after that bad and forgetful weekend in Monaco.

FERRARI​ , are the team to beat this season and it doesn’t seem that they will be behind Merc in the Qualifying. The circuit suits them​.

Redbull, they have often struggled here and with the current situation it doesn’t seem that they are gonna do something great this weekend.

Force India, was the most consistent team of the season till the last race. Hope they will be back. Much stronger than before

Williams, their rookie driver LANCE STROLL who happens to be a Canadian might be looking for a accident free race and score some points at his home.

McLaren, the tension between McLaren & Honda seems to be increasing as Honda failed to bring the planned upgrade this weekend.
One change this year has been that, the  Wall of Champions have been shifted a little behind.
