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.
