Everything you need to know about the Canadian Grand Prix in 60 seconds


As Lewis Hamilton looks to repeat last year's win at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, we take an in-depth look at the Canadian Grand Prix which takes place in Montreal this weekend.

Here are some things you might not know about the race.

The track's length is 4.3km and there are 14 turns and 70 laps. The quickest lap record was achieved by Rubens Barrichello in 2004 with a time of 1:13.622.

The weather forecast for this weekend is for 76% cloud cover with some sunny spells and no rain. With this in mind, the best tyre selections look set to be ultrasoft, supersoft and soft.

The race was won by Hamilton last year with a time of 1:31:53.145 and in 2014 by Daniel Ricciardo with a time of 1:39:12.830.

The top five vehicle constructors in 2016 are Mercedes, Ferrari, Red Bull, Williams and Force India. So keep an eye out for those.
