F1 Raceweek: Hamilton seeks to match Schumacher - Canadian Grand Prix in numbers

F1 Raceweek: Hamilton seeks to match Schumacher - Canadian Grand Prix in numbers

Mercedes' decision will also affects Force India and Williams, who will have to stick with the engines that they have been using since the start of the season.

4 - Mercedes have been in pole position for four consecutive races in Canada, Hamilton with three and Nico Rosberg with one.

The 33-year-old Briton, who loves spending time in North America where he has additionally won the United States Grand Prix four times, arrived in Montreal on Tuesday night after visiting California, reportedly to check on his dogs Roscoe and Coco, and NY.

That is your look ahead to the possible stories to follow this weekend in Canada. It's a good one and it's still running perfectly and running reliably.

The Mercedes driver is the most successful driver of the current generation around the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve with six wins to his name, just one shy of the record held by Michael Schumacher.

Under the regulations, each driver has three engines, turbos and MGU-Hs to last a whole season before incurring grid penalties and two MGU-Ks, energy stores and control electronics. He has won before in Montreal, in 2013 with Red Bull, and was unlucky that a tactical error undid Ferrari's strategy with him in 2016.

The Silver Arrows now lead both the drivers and constructors championships after six races. "It's a circuit where overtaking is relatively straightforward, speeds are high and the cars are pushed to their limits".

Trump heading to G7 summit after report says he wanted to bail
Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer said in a statement that Trump was turning USA foreign policy "into an global joke". At stake is the risk of tit-for-tat tariffs between the major western economies turning into an unrestrained trade war.

Mercedes decided this week to postpone the introduction of its upgrade across all six cars because reliability had not been proven in dyno testing.

Scorching the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve with the fastest times of the day will have that effect on a driver.

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.

For his part Vettel believes Ferrari's 2018 vehicle is not now "a true match" for Mercedes, despite having won the first race. Vettel has dropped nine while Kimi Raikkonen has dropped 27.

Vettel stood top the podium in 2013 while Australian Ricciardo was the last driver to beat Hamilton to the finish coming home first in 2014. "But let's see where we are".

Here are the highlights of last years race. "We're looking forward to the challenge".
