Canadian Grand Prix

A Bit of Background:

Our very own Nicholas Latifi will finally get to race in his first ever home Grand Prix in June, as F1 returns to the Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve, after a year away due to Covid-19.

It’s a special moment for any driver to race in front of their home crowd, and we’re sure Nicholas will be in for a treat. The Canadians are some of the most welcoming in the world and the city of Montreal turns out in force to the Notre Dame island.

What Makes Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve Unique:

The Wall of Champions is probably the most infamous part of the track. The exit to the final corner has claimed multiple high-profile victims over the years, but earned it nickname at the 1999 Grand Prix, where Damon Hill, Michael Schumacher and Jacques Villeneuve all had race-ending accidents.

But it’s the also the local wildlife that have grown in infamy over the years, with the local population of groundhogs interrupting races and practice sessions in recent years.
