MERCEDES DRIVER LEWIS HAMILTON DOMINATES IN MONTREAL

WITH A ONE-STOP ULTRASOFT-SUPERSOFT STRATEGY

 

WIDE VARIETY OF STRATEGIES ADOPTED: TWO STOPS FOR BOTH FERRARI DRIVERS TO SET UP A SPRINT FINISH

 

LOW WEAR AND DEGRADATION ON ALL THE COMPOUNDS

WITH SOME VERY LONG OPENING STINTS, HELPED BY EARLY SAFETY CARS

MARIO ISOLA - HEAD OF CAR RACING

“Conditions today were more blustery than they were during the weekend and the race got underway with an early safety car. These factors added more variables to the strategy calculations, and so we saw many teams trying different approaches, while reacting to changing race circumstances. Hamilton’s long opening stint on the ultrasoft enabled him to complete the race on the supersoft: the same strategy adopted by Force India, which used it to challenge for the podium. Ferrari reacted to Vettel’s early first pit stop by then using a different approach to make up places at the finish.” 

BEST TIME BY COMPOUND

LONGEST STINT OF THE RACE

TRUTHOMETER

Lewis Hamilton won the race using one pit stop and the strategy that we predicted was theoretically the second-fastest approach to the race. Hamilton went from ultrasoft to supersoft on lap 32, while his team mate Valtteri Bottas in second completed a shorter opening stint in accordance with our fastest strategy prediction, switching from ultrasoft to soft on lap 23.
