Pirelli F1 Canadian Grand-Prix race review

10.06.2018: - Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel wins from pole in Canada with a one-stop ultrasoft-supersoft strategy - One pit stop for nearly all

- Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel wins from pole in Canada with a one-stop ultrasoft-supersoft strategy

- One pit stop for nearly all drivers, with low wear and degradation helped by an early safety car period

- All three compounds used during the race, held in warm and dry conditions





There was a mix of tyre strategies in play at Montreal, with three different teams on the podium and two different philosophies on strategy.



Ferrari’s race winner Sebastian Vettel and Mercedes runner-up Valtteri Bottas both started on the ultrasoft and then switched to the supersoft at around the same time.


The two Red Bull drivers in third and fourth went the opposite route, carrying out a shorter first stint on the hypersoft and then switching to the supersoft for the run to the flag.



Throughout the frontrunners’ battles with their direct rivals, the timing of the pit stops was also an important consideration, with many drivers attempting an ‘undercut’ in a close strategic duel.



 Haas driver Romain Grosjean, who dropped to the back of the grid after a problem in qualifying, completed an extremely long first stint on the ultrasoft before finishing just outside the points on the supersoft.




MARIO ISOLA - HEAD OF CAR RACING



“The strategy was really dictated by qualifying yesterday, with the early safety car period here also ensuring that a one-stopper became the way to go, on top of the low wear and degradation seen on this track generally.



 All three nominated compounds were used extensively during the race, with different thinking on strategy all the way down the grid. A number of drivers, notably Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo and Haas driver Romain Grosjean were able to use strategy to boost their grid positions.



 The championship has now taken another twist, which makes it even more interesting as we head next to a completely new venue at Paul Ricard in France.”




TRUTHOMETER


We predicted a one-stopper to be the theoretically quickest way to complete the race and this turned out to be exactly the case. Vettel made his sole pit stop on lap 37 from ultrasoft to supersoft, having built up enough of a margin not to lose the lead of the race.
