Out of the 6 World champions racing this season ‘its Sebastian Vettel who has proven his Metal.’
Vettel leads the pack with 143 Points winning 5 out of 6 grand prix this season. Vettel has already shown signs that its hard to match his speed and is taking full advantage of the new Drag Reduction System (DRS).
Lewis Hamilton who is currently 2nd in drivers standing is 58 points behind Vettel and he will need some magic to snatch the driver’s championship from Vettel who almost has both his hands on the trophy.
So let’s take a look at the circuit.
Built on an artificial island of Notre Dame, the Montreal circuit is fast but requires heavy braking, putting a lot of strain on the tyres and it will be interesting to see how the new Pirelli tyres last on Sunday. The characteristics of Canada mean that we won’t be seeing a one stop strategy this weekend.

Lewis Hamilton is the defending champion as he won the 2010 Grand Prix Du Canada, and it will be interesting to see how he handles the heat this time.
Analysts say it’s going to be another Vettel show.
We at OP are also backing up Vettel but, we have people supporting different drivers among ourselves.
I think I’ll leave it up to you guys..
What do you think? Vettel, Hamilton or someone else?
