Welcome to the Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve, located on the picturesque island of Île Notre-Dame in Montreal, Quebec, for the Canadian Grand Prix.
With high-speed straights, challenging chicanes, and an iconic hairpin, this circuit is a favourite for drivers and fans alike.
The track seamlessly blends the essence of street circuit racing, with nearby walls threatening to bite, and the grass and gravel run-offs of dedicated circuits, to make this a rare best-of-both track for the drivers to try and master.
Circuit Overview:
Spanning 4.361 km (2.710 miles) with 14 turns, the Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve begins with a short run to the first turn, with low-speed cornering and acceleration key to maximising Sector 1.
Chicanes and straights are the name of the game in the second sector, while the track ends with Sector 3 and it's Turn 10 hairpin, DRS straight, and the pinpoint final chicane.
Nicknamed the Wall of Champions, the exit of that chicane has caught out many a driver, including three world champions in the 1999 race, who had their Sunday prematurely end in the barriers.
