CANADA GRAND PRIX RACE

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

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.”
