Formula One statistics for the Canadian Grand Prix

The goal is to make the engine stay the same the whole way through but naturally it's degraded. As with Schumacher before him, he looks to have mastered heavy braking and acceleration on the circuit's long straightaways that lead into tight chicanes.

It is good news for Ferrari, whose championship contender Sebastian Vettel will use a new engine in power-hungry Canada.

The Turn 8/9 complex is a slightly faster-mirrored version of Turn 6/7, which is followed by L'Epingle, the slowest corner on the circuit, from where traction is critical in order to carry as much speed as possible along the back straight, adjacent to the Rowing Basin that hosted the 1976 Summer Olympics.

Hamilton said he was bewildered to find himself behind as Vettel emerged from the pits to hold on to the lead around the notoriously-restrictive Albert Park street circuit.

But Hamilton ruled out reducing practice running to preserve the engines, saying "I always watch mileage anyway".

It will be a big weekend at the track, which is celebrating the 40th anniversary of the event's move to the island circuit across from downtown Montreal. His son, the 1997 Formula One champion Jacques Villeneuve, will drive his father's Ferrari from that race in the parade lap on Sunday.

It will be a memorable weekend also for two-time champion Fernando Alonso, who is entered for his 300th Grand Prix and, potentially, his 298th start. It will be tough to repeat his ninth place finish with the Williams team struggling to get the auto up to pace this season.

The team's struggles with the "hyper-soft" tyre in Monte Carlo undermined them in qualifying, but their strategic approach enabled Hamilton to finish third and extend his record run of points-scoring races to 31.

"It is a unique track, the walls are close, there's not a lot of room for error", said Stroll. "As a team we're not where we want to be".

Bottas played down the delay to the new engine, saying it would have been only "a small gain compared to the old one" anyway. I'm looking forward to the rest of the season.

During the Monte Carlo weekend we saw the German manufacturer struggle more than most on the new pink-striped rubber and in the race, Hamilton, in particular, suffered from graining on both the softest two compounds.
