Poor Ricciardo; screwed out of the win by his pit crew. :/

Marcus Ericsson and Daniil Kvyat will both receive three-place grid penalties for the Canadian Grand Prix after stewards found them to be at fault for separate collisions.

 

Kvyat was awarded a three-place grid penalty as well as two penalty points on his license for avoidable contact with Kevin Magnussen, while Ericsson was given the same punishment for colliding with his team mate later in the race.

 

The penalties leave Ericsson with six penalty points on his super license, while Kvyat currently has seven. Any driver who receives 12 points in a single 12 month period will receive a one race suspension.

 

Kimi Raikkonen was also investigated after the race following his collision with Romain Grosjean, but no further action was taken by the stewards.

After the 1st 3 corners I thought the track was just gonn be a square, luckily turn 4 saved us from that.

Though it is almost a square:

Yep, that first section I was thinking oh god this track is horrible!

 

I'm not a fan of it overall at the moment, it looks too thin a track to provide any decent overtaking other than maybe a drag race into turn one but time will tell.

Yeah, it's one of my favourites on the calendar, too, for a fairly obvious reason (besides being one of the best tracks around). :p

I'd say that reject of the race was the Ferrari strategist. Choosing that 2 stop strategy ruined their race completely.

You know what, when he was at Red Bull I honestly disliked the guy, I don't know what happened to him but he is brilliant at giving interviews more and more.

Watching it a lot of teams were running different setup's low vs high downforce as they try adn learn the track, hence the 0.5+ a sec difference between a lot of team mates.

Can someone please enlighten me: why is Barca to Monaco a 2 weeks break but Montreal to Baku is just a few days? Barca to Monaco is no distance but Montreal to Baku is thousands of miles.
