Canadian Grand Prix 2017 weather forecast

Montréal

Fri 9 Jun - Sun 11 Jun 2017

The Gilles-Villeneuve circuit will host the Canadian Grand Prix in Montréal once again this year on 9-11 June 2017.

Last year's race was won by Lewis Hamilton, with Sebastian Vettel in second and Valtteri Bottas placing third. The lap record is held by Rubens Barrichello, who set a time of 1:13.622 in 2004.

What conditions will the drivers face at the Canadian Grand Prix?

"The heat builds across Montreal for the Grand Prix this weekend. The weather will be dry for qualifying on Saturday, before a hotter race day on Sunday. Sunday will be dry at first, with the risk of some showers with thunder."

Clare Nasir, Met Office meteorologist.

9-11 June - How will the weather affect this year's Canadian Grand Prix?

The circuit lies on Notre Dame Island, a man-made island in the St Lawrence River. The track was renamed in honour of Gilles Villenueve following his tragic death in 1982. Villenueve had won the first race at the track back in 1978, when he took a memorable debut victory in his first season with Ferrari.

How does weather affect racing?

Different weather conditions can result in very different races, and Formula 1 teams adapt their strategy accordingly, for example using different tyres in wet conditions, and taking account of cross winds which can cause stability problems at high speeds.
