Looking back at the last five Canadian Grands Prix

However, a "quality issue" forced the team to abandon its debut until the French Grand Prix later this month, despite this, Bottas believes it won't hinder Mercedes' performance.

Montreal wasn't kind to Mercedes in 2014 with Hamilton encountering brake issues that forced him to retire after 46 laps.

A couple of events were held at Mont-Tremblant - the circuit now owned by Lance Stroll's father Lawrence - before the Grand Prix circus settled on a new venue in Montreal for 1978. "So all Mercedes-powered cars will be running PU1 for this weekend, too, before receiving new units in France".

Rival engine manufacturers Honda and Renault are pressing ahead with planned power-unit upgrades this weekend.

The race for the points by Force India's Paul Di Resta and Ferrari's Felipe Massa were undoubtedly one of the highlights of the race.

"Didn't have any problems", said Hamilton, who leads the championship standings by 14 points over Vettel and 38 over Ricciardo.

"Naturally I am still here to win but as I said if they've got upgrades on their engines which can be a tenth to two tenths - Ferrari are particularly very strong on the straights, it will be interesting to see whether we're able to match them or not".

That's perhaps the lesson for a 59-year-old California woman who was gored by a bison in Yellowstone on Wednesday. Two women were injured in separate attacks by a cow elk near the Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel Sunday and Tuesday.

Then there's the four-hour epic in 2011 as, in wet/dry conditions, Button recovered from last place at one stage early on to pass Vettel's Red Bull on the last lap for the win. "And on a track like Montreal, the effects are even greater".

Despite a poor weekend in Monaco, Haas is bringing a significant upgrade for this weekend and with the updated Ferrari engine will likely be a threat once again.

It will also be the 300th career F1 race for Spanish star Fernando Alonso, the two-time world champion now driving for McLaren. Ferrari ought to know Montreal by now, seeing as how the city has hosted every Canadian Grand Prix for the last 40 years. Instead of that, we'll use the new one in Budapest.

Our top picks for the five-driver line-up are Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel, the two drivers most likely to fight for the win.

"They'll be hard to beat", the Australian said.
