An exciting and windy Canadian Grand Prix

Montreal always seems to deliver big when it comes to emotions.  This year was no exception, with plenty of drama and excitement at a jam-packed Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.

Attendance was up 20 percent from last year's Canadian race, as Mercedes achieved the season’s first one-two finish with three-time World Champion Lewis Hamilton hoisting the winner's trophy, placing him 12 points behind the championship leader Sebastian vettel.


Lewis Hamilton equalled Ayrton Senna’s pole position record in qualifying. The feat was honoured by the presentation of the late Brazilian’s helmet to the Englishman on Saturday during the post qualifying live interview.


Haas Team Principal Guenther SteinerForce India's Sergio Perez finished in fifth position.  “I’m pleased to come away with fifth place because it was a very intense afternoon," said the Mexican driver.   Perez was running close behind Red Bull's Daniel Riccardo for most of the race. "I could see he was struggling in certain areas and, as we started to come through the lapped traffic, I thought I deserved the chance to try and overtake him. I tried my best and really pushed hard, but it just wasn’t possible to make the move."


Perez was in the same situation with his teammate Esteban Ocon behind for almost half the race, but it was only on the final lap that he got really close.  "I knew Esteban had better tyre life because my engineers made me aware of the situation and I replied by asking the team to simply let us race. I think the team was fair and respected my view. The team always comes first and we raced hard, but fair. I always give my best and I’m very happy we could come away with so many points from this race.”


"The battle between Sergio and Esteban was one of the stories of the race and showed how closely-matched they are as teammates, said Robert Fernley, Force India's Deputy Team Principal.   "We clearly had the quicker car compared to the Red Bull of Ricciardo, but overtaking in Montreal is never easy and we spent almost the entire race in his wheel tracks. After the pit stops, Esteban was right behind Sergio and had a pace advantage thanks to his fresher tyres."


For the third straight race in 2017 the Haas F1 Team earned points when Romain Grosjean finished 10th in the Canadian Grand Prix Sunday at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal. Teammate Kevin Magnussen placed 12th after starting 18th in the 20-car field.


“It was a very exciting race for us. It didn’t start well with Romain being hit by Sainz at the beginning and dropping down to last after having to come in for a wing change," said Guenther Steiner, Team Principal of Haas F1.  "All in all, I’m pretty happy with the weekend," he added.  "As much as it looks like we didn’t do what we should be doing, we got a point, meaning we’ve scored points now in five out of seven races this year – and in one of those we had a DNF (Did Not Finish). I think if we’re always around there, we can always score points."


The Haas F1 Team is currently in eighth position in the constructors standings with 15 points. Seventh-place Renault is just three points ahead and ninth-place Sauber is 11 points back.
