Canadian Grand Prix 2018 weather forecast

Montréal

Fri 8 JunSun 10 Jun 2018

The Gilles-Villeneuve circuit will host the Canadian Grand Prix in Montréal once again this year on 8-10 June 2018.

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.

8-10 June - How will the weather affect this year's Canadian Grand Prix?

Few places embrace their Grand Prix as enthusiastically as Montreal. The city grinds to a halt over the race weekend as fans from around the world descend on Quebec for a non-stop party. Formula One fever - street parties, driver appearances and F1 exhibitions - is focused in one area of town: Rue Ste Catherine. It is the focal point at which race fans can meet. But there is plenty to see and do elsewhere because Montreal seamlessly mixes the old with the new. There is the 400-year-old charm of ‘Vieux Montreal’, which sits in surprising harmony with the grid pattern and skyscrapers of the modern city.
