Mercedes and Ferrari looking for answers
After the Barcelona Grand Prix, F1 heads to Quebec for the traditional appointment on the Montreal circuit named after Gilles Villeneuve. On this ‘stop&go’ trail Mercedes and Ferraris they will seek further answers on the effectiveness of the updates brought to Monaco and Barcelona respectively, even if Canada’s response will obviously not be particularly indicative given that aerodynamic load counts relatively on the straights and the Montreal chicanes.
Red Bull has always won in 2023 and Max Verstappen has a streak of three victories open in Miami. The poker of consecutive successes would allow him to reach a sacred monster like Ayrton Senna at 41 career victories in F1. The Aston Martin of Fernando Alonso and Lance Stroll should also be followed since the AMR23 should bring a new fund, a development defined as important by the managers of the English team. Also to be monitored is the situation linked to forest fires which are significantly worsening the air quality in Quebec. However, the authorities have specified that the Grand Prix is not at risk.
