I've always maintained that there is an unknown section at Maranello which is the think tank behind the whole programme.

Love how all the journos are jumping around with sensation stories of a mystical 'dark horse' that will challenge Max at the Montreal island track.

Don't see who can beat MAX . MAX is untouchable in all the races .
This season he drives even better with scalpel precision !

His 3rd Worldtitle in a row is already a fact

If the rest of the journos didn't take in or forgot the last lap for Max at Barcelona then they're living in a trance.

Max simply said 'no' to a rat trap, could see through wolfy like with x-ray glasses and would have been another 'BOT' controlled slave.
Advice from Jos also backed up what would have been a big mistake.

Max laughs his socks off at Merc's 'cancel zeropod B spec' conversion and how wolfy is convinced they'll get closer to Max b/c of this

Red Bull Racing are attempting their 100th win at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve with team principal Horner taking each race one by one rather than a disparaging long term outlook by Wolff.
Maximum team support is being given to Checo according to Horner to get over his last two poor outings, if only he can show the same gusto as his 2020 Sakhir win where he won after rejoining the race from last and get over thinking about what Max said about '22 Monaco.

I'll be in GS12 for the entire weekend and looking forward to fun in the rain. First time back since pre-covid, but this event is so much better than any F1 race in the US.

Since its been 3 years since I've been, any helpful tips?

^ I dropped in on the track while in Montreal quite some time ago and keep hearing its one of the easiest tracks to get to with good public transport connections and the track has good public facilities with reasonable prices.

Outside of two RB mechanical failures or a Max mechanical failure/Checo qualy disaster combo, how does RB NOT win every race this season?

It's unlikely that a RB car will have a race breakdown, such is the reliability now with the constant updates and as long as they get ahead at the start (presuming they will be on the front row) then it should be plain sailing with an effective strat.

FYI played the new F1 2023 game last night and hit Vegas first. Extremely boring and extremely fast track. There are very few turns, with a couple weird 90 degree turns thrown in as well. You come across the start/finish grandstand very very fast on a sweeping left turn (think Miami but even faster). I think the folks near start/finish will get one helluva show speed wise.

It was also fun to drive Spain again without that stupid last chicane.
