The closest the non-Mercedes cars can get is almost 7 tenths.

Oh god.

Other than that I'm rooting for any of the Williams (Bottas preferably, but it doesn't really matter) because the Martini livery looks so much better than any of the others.

Visca Catalunya!

What a race.

Both Marussias out on the first lap. Plenty of overtakings, Hamilton and Rosberg fighting each other. 'Milton breaking down. A Mercedes didn't win. Lots of drivers spin, including legendary ice cream fan Raikko. Massa takes out Perez in an incredible shunt.

Oh god.

I was supposed to be in Montreal from Monday 'til Sunday for work, unfortunately I was recalled to Connecticut on Friday so I didn't get to partake in the race festivities, which is kind of a shame.

Not really a well suited track to F1 with all the short blasts on the throttle and little dinky chicanes/low speed turns, and yet it always produces fireworks, thrills, and an entertaining race.

This one was OK, but I found that most passes were just being made under the run to the chicane before the start finish.

The lack of runoff makes drivers pay for their mistakes.

I thought that was an interesting race...Montreal was always hard on brake, and with a big chunk of braking now being done by the MGU-K ERS, issues with that can be pretty bad for brakes. Mercedes had issue with both car with one car actually failed. Perez was reporting brake trouble also. IIRC even in WEC I think Toyota had a race where their ERS failed and caused a brake failure.

That last 10 laps of the race was nail biting...
