Changes at Montreal

NEWS STORY
05/06/2014

Ahead of this weekend's Canadian Grand Prix the FIA has revealed a number of changes to the Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve.

Asphalt has replaced the gravel around the outside of Turns 10 and 13, while the barrier on the outside of Turn 13 (right of the pit entry), has been moved further back and a new debris fence has been installed.

New guardrail posts have been added in order to ensure that no spacing is greater than two metres, while the speed bumps used in 2013 at the exit of Turn 9 and the final chicane will be in place again this year.

There will be two DRS zones this weekend with both sharing a single detection point, located 110m after Turn 9. The first activation point is 55m before Turn 12, the second 70m after Turn 14.

"The Canadian Grand Prix has given us some thrilling races. The stop-start rain effected 2011 rendition was one of the greatest of all time, 2005 was another classic. However, the race here can also be boring. I'm hoping for more of that with a Safety Car NOT being needed for the fourth time in five years.

Statistically the Safety Car appears 56 percent of the time at the Gilles Villeneuve circuit but, with the forecasts strongly suggesting there will be sunny skies overhead throughout Sunday’s race, the probability of a Safety Car must fall below the even-money.

Given the additional news (above) the 'No Safety Car in the Canadian Grand Prix' scenario on offer at 13/8 with BetVictor and Ladbrokes must be surely snapped up.
