American race fans won’t have to wake up at an ungodly hour Sunday, as Formula One heads across the pond to Montreal for the 2017 Canadian Grand Prix.
Mercedes-AMG Petronas’ Lewis Hamilton will have his work cut out for him if he hopes to take his third-consecutive victory at the 2.71-mile Circuit Gille Villeneuve. Sebastian Vettel and Scuderia Ferrari firmly established themselves as the pace-setters of the field during the Monaco Grand Prix, and Hamilton has struggled all year to make his W08 EQ Power+ work for him.
This will be McLaren-Honda driver Fernando Alonso’s second North American race in a row, following the Spaniard’s impressive, albeit unsuccessful maiden Indianapolis 500. Alonso is in for a rough weekend, as his underpowered MCL32 won’t fare well on the long straights of Montreal.
