Canadian Grand Prix 2021

11 Jun 2021 - 13 Jun 2021

About

The Canadian Grand Prix is held at the man-made island in the St Lawrence River in Montreal. Originally called the Île Notre-Dame Circuit, named after the island on which it is located, the track was renamed after their home hero’s tragic death in 1982. Circuit Gilles Villeneuve has been its name since then, paying tribute to the inaugural winner of the circuit. The 2020 edition of the Canadian Grand Prix had to be canceled because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Formula One would make a return to the track in the 2021 season with the race scheduled to be held on 13 June 2021. 

Racing History

The Circuit is famous for its heritage and its ability to produce some of the best races of the year. The circuit is also famous for the notorious “Wall of Champions” where almost every champion would crash in the 1997 edition of the Canadian Grand Prix. The circuit has had some of the best races in the history of the sport. Be it is 2010 when the whole grid was caught off-guard by excessive wear on their tires that led to some great wheel to wheel action. Or in 2011 when Jenson Button despite going through the pits multiple times and being last in the race would still come back to win Grand Prix on the very last lap. The circuit has seen clashes between teammates with Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton crashing into each other in 2011. The circuit was also home to the first Grand Prix victory of Lewis Hamilton’s career in 2008. In 2014 Daniel Ricciardo would do the same by snatching the victory from Nico Rosberg. The 2019 edition too copped some controversy as Sebastian Vettel would be penalized for dangerous driving and get a 10-second penalty. Michael Schumacher and Lewis Hamilton are the two most successful drivers on this track with 7 wins each. While Ferrari is the most successful constructor in Canada with 14 wins.
