Formula 1 Grand Prix Du Canada 2011

So much to catch for for me after the vacation and sightseeing.
Going to finish the BBC Monaco Race before this weekend, as well as catching up with all the big news this week in F1.

Canada is known for less-favor to RBR set up, where the long straights and sharp apexes / hairpin turn are less aerodynamically sensitive. More down to the car's top speed, KERS useage, DRS, tire useage, and got brave the driver can brake late into the corner.

This should be an exciting race with possible dual DRS zone.

The bad news is, the race coverage will be broadcast in FOX for American viewers. At least its still live broadcast.

Race Date: 12 Jun 2011
Circuit Name: Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve
Number of Laps: 70
Circuit Length: 4.361 km
Race Distance: 305.270 km
Lap Record: 1:13.622 - R Barrichello (2004)

Tire Compounds Provided:
Prime:
Soft (Yellow)
Option: Super-Soft (Red)
Rain: Intermediate (Light Blue), Wet (Orange)

Fri 10 June 2011 (Montreal - Eastern Time)
Practice 1
10:00 - 11:30
Practice 2 14:00 - 15:30
Sat 11 June 2011
Practice 3
10:00 - 11:00
Qualifying 13:00

Race

BE AWARE NORTH AMERICAN VIEWERS!!!
Its time for SPEED TV and FOX to swap broadcasting for Formula 1 this summer, I'm not sure how many races (usually three). And Canadian GP is the first one this season. Please check local listing for delayed broadcast or live at your local FOX channel!!!

For SoCal Charter viewers, besides SPEED.com will live stream P1 and P3 practice sessions, Friday P2 Practice and Qualifying (Delayed) will be show in SPEED, and RACE will be at FOX!

I was supposed to go but with my summer course load, it just wouldn't be a good idea

Fuck FOX, I'll wait a few hours and download the BBC torrent. I think that's what I'll be doing for now anyway because SPEED, in comparison, is trash as well.

Demonoid usually has one posted around mid-day Sunday.


Back to the race though, can't wait to see how the tires will hold up. I also hope they finally fully repaired the track this time.

If they havn't, the race would be very interesting...
Last year even the Bridgestones can't hold up for too long...

Actually, I meant on the hairpin where the track was reported to be breaking up in the past. I thought it was still slightly an issue last year.

Maybe they resolved that already, but I wouldn't trade in the high wear rate the 'Circuit Gilles Villeneuve' has for anything though.

The hairpin seemed fine last year, I did recall back in 2008, there were emergency repairs on part of the hairpin where the tarmac was breaking up or so. If we pulled up the 2008 Canadian GP clips, we can see a section of new asphalt being laid down near the apex of the hairpin.

But generally speaking, the track itself is very worn down and abrasive. It is going to hurt the life of these pirellis. Even Pirelli won't predict tire useage for Canadian GP.
