1st corner in Canada too....not a favorite spot for event-free start.....

IMO McLaren will win Canada....lack of highspeed corner will play to their advantage vs RBR.

It's a basic of any performance driving school... I even used to have a bumper sticker. Words to live by. (if spelled right: doh!)
Goes along with fast in, slow out.

The lack of high speed corners didn't help McLaren at Mônaco. It has a lot to do with kerb riding (Red Bull seem stronger there), traction out of slow corners (point for Red Bull) and top speed (advantage to McLaren). And somewhere in between stands Ferrari.

IMO, Montreal will be a three way fight between McLaren, Red Bull and Ferrari.
It's anyone's to take.

What would be worth keeping an eye on is Red Bull's brake management.

And for the crash, Vettel is a big boy, he should be able to overtake without crashing. Even so, has he not watched enough races and been around long enough to know Webber is not easily intimidated or just doesn't let people pass him without resistance?

Forget all Red Bull PR and comments, I know who messed up.

Webber has just signed with RBR for next year. This is going to be interesting.

autosport.com - F1 News: Hamilton told Button would not pass him

Guess that explains why Lewis was pissed-ish on the podium....

Difference is though Monaco is a high downforce(even if the speed is low, whatever downforce you can get is a plus) track, where as Montreal is not. Turkey shows that in sector 1 and 3 where corners are not that fast and is mostly short straight between med-low speed corner, the car was as fast if not faster than RBR. Montreal is a track entirely composed of short straight and chicane.....

It will be even more interesting if the Championship battles remain close to the end to see if RBR enacts driver orders or chooses a #1 driver should it become necessary to win either championship.
