Timo Glock: “I have very good memories from Canada, but not only because I like the track but because I have had some of my best results here, with points in my Formula One debut in 2004, second in Champ Car a year later and fourth in F1 in 2008 where I also led the race for some laps. So it’s always special to come here to Montreal and I love the city also. It has a really exciting vibe and everyone loves to experience time after time.

“At the beginning of the weekend the track is always dirty, as it is located in a park on an island and it’s not used as a racing circuit outside of the Grand Prix. It combines long straights with chicanes and slow corners and it will be interesting to be able to use DRS at two different points of the track. It’s always a challenge to drive closely past the Wall of Champions without actually touching it. I hope our low downforce package works well and we can have a good weekend.”
