2017 Canadian GP

Post by The_Wall_91 on Tue May 30, 2017 11:49 pm

The first race in North America takes place at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Canada. Let's hope that Lance Stroll doesn't make a complete ass of himself in his home race. Anyways, let's get to some headlines.

Vettel Goes Up 25

For the first time this season, the drivers title has seen the lead extended to a full race. With Vettel's win in Monaco, he has gone up 25 points over rival Lewis Hamilton. Vettel is on pace to win his 5th drivers title and winning will certainly help his cause.

Has Anyone Seen Lewis?

Ah Lewis...you had a rough week to say the least. A 14th place qualifying effort, being passed in practice by a McLaren, losing to Carlos Sainz, and he is now a full race behind Vettel. He did so bad that I felt bad for him (sarcasm in the highest degree). Who knows, maybe Lewis will get going again.

Haas Double Down

For the first time in their brief history, Haas had both cars score points in the same race. While they may not have stolen a large number of points, they still achieved a goal they waited a long time for. Whether or not they fail, Haas F1 has done very well for themselves with very few races under their belt.

Perez: "Where is my Mind?"

Outside of the Button and Wehrlein crash, the comedy show was brought to you by Force India featuring the headlining act, Sergio Perez. Not only did Sergio lose his streak of points finishes, he made himself look completely clueless trying to keep his streak alive, just as Kvyat.

Time for the Canadian GP quiz. There are 5 questions this time and some are not easy.

1. Circuit Gilles Villeneuve is obviously named after Gilles Villeneuve. What year did Gilles take his Canadian GP win?

2. The 1991 race seemed like it was going to go Nigel Mansell's way. However, a mechanical issue on the last lap handed victory to which driver?

3. What driver took the groundhog population and dropped it by 1 in 2007?

4. Lewis Hamilton claimed his first victory in Canada in 2007. Can you recall who joined Lewis on the podium in 2007?

5. There are only 5 tracks that have hosted more F1 races than Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, name them.

Since no one decided to give the questionnaire a try, I will give the answers.

1. Gilles won in Canada in 1978

2. The driver that benefited from Mansell's issue was Nelson Piquet

3. Anthony Davidson lowered the groundhog population in 2007

4. 2nd place finisher was Nick Heidfeld and 3rd was Alex Wurz

5. The 5 tracks are Monza, Monaco, Silverstone, Spa, and the Nurburgring

Winners of the Canadian GP:

Lewis Hamilton: Win #6 in Canada
Daniel Riccardo: Held on for a podium after beating Force India and Vettel
Force India: Should have scored a podium but they are still impressive
Lance Stroll: First career F1 points for you, Congratulations
Esteban Ocon's Fist?: Look out Sergio

Losers of the Canadian GP:

Ferrari: 2 stops again? Obviously you didn't learn
Toro Rosso: Make up your minds on whether or not you want to finish
Sergio Perez: Thank you for taking away your teammates podium
McLaren Honda: You guys build better rafts than engines
Me: I need to do a better job of getting discussions

Kinda lackluster with a Mercedes run away, but Vettel v Force India fight, Alonso partying in the stands, and Patrick Stewart being a shoe-in for fun made it good.
