It has been incredible to race at home after such a long time away.

Lance Stroll

"We had a great strategy for this race and I am super-pleased to have been able to score a point. We did a great job deciding to go long on the first set of tyres to make a one-stop race work, managing to keep a string of cars behind me.

"The overtake on Daniel [Ricciardo] was a nice bonus – we were on fresher tyres so it was a pretty easy move. Things are certainly a lot more challenging this year, but I am pleased to have had a successful race today.

"Finally, a big thank you to all the fans for giving me such a fantastic reception all weekend – it has been incredible to race at home after such a long time away."

We had shown good pace this weekend and could have had a better result.

"It just was not our day. We made an early stop to find some clear air, but then the Virtual Safety Cars came along at the wrong time. That really compromised my race.

"At the end, I was on very old rubber and I tried to hang on, but it did not work out. Lance was on fresher tyres, and the team asked me to let him past to attack Daniel, which I was happy to do. The result was frustrating – we had shown good pace this weekend and could have had a better result, but sometimes things don’t go your way.

"Today felt like one of those days. Well done to the team for all their hard work and to Lance for scoring a point today."

We got the best out of a tricky set of strategic options and go home encouraged by our pace.

"On paper, 10th position for Lance feels like scant reward for a long, hard weekend and a race that was tricky to manage from start to finish.

"But that point does not tell the whole story: Lance drove patiently, managing an extremely long first stint on the Hard tyre to keep a train of cars behind him. He was unleashed at the end and deserved that final point – helped in part by Sebastian, who graciously moved aside to let him attack Daniel.

"Sebastian also drove a fine, measured race. Starting towards the back stacks things against you, and his strategy was not helped by the pair of VSCs in the early laps, but, ultimately, I think we worked well as a team today.

"We got the best out of a tricky set of strategic options, executed some solid pit-stops and we go home encouraged by the burgeoning pace of our car."

Insight and Speed

01

Track position

The pace advantage required to pass at Montreal is low and 75% of overtakes make use of DRS. However, a short lap means the field is much closer together than at races such as Azerbaijan, making it more difficult to build an advantage over those behind.

02

Strategy

Canada has the shortest pit-loss time of the year at just 18 seconds, meaning multi-stops are more manageable. That said, in 2019, only three drivers made more than one stop. Pirelli is bringing the C3, C4 and C5 – the softest tyre compounds – for the third race in a row.

03

Safety Cars

The rate of Safety Car and Virtual Safety Car deployment is below average for the season: just four of the races since 2010 have had a full SC, including the extreme wet race in 2011. There has only been one red flag in that time, also during the rain in 2011.

Unlocking the Lap

The heavy braking at the hairpin of L'Epingle at Turn 10 makes this a popular overtaking spot for those who can pull off a move on entry. This is followed by the long acceleration of the Casino Straight and the fastest part of the track, where drivers reach speeds of 330km/h.

Yet most will know the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve for the Wall of Champions that immediately follows the iconic Turn 13/14 chicane. If all goes well, this right-left complex is the perfect slingshot into the next lap.

Get it wrong, however, and you'll follow the likes of Jacques Villeneuve, Damon Hill and Michael Schumacher into an unyielding concrete wall…
