2010 Canadian Grand Prix reviews



Bookmark and Share

The Canadian Grand Prix was the most exciting race of the season. After 1.5 years rotten the top spot, 2008 World champion Hamilton lead the 2010 Grand Prix championship once more on track to be the best ever

The perfect combination of the Working based Vodafone McLaren team once again gave us a exciting 1-2 finish in Montréal at the Canadian Grand Prix, with both drivers looking eminently at ease.

Saturday qualifying session was also one of the best performs this season. Once again another Red Bull front line up was destroyed by Lewis Hamilton on his last speedy lap. Red Bulls tag on with a Mark Webber Position 2 and Sebastian Vettel Position 3, But
Webber was going down five places for a precautionary gear box change ahead of the race. Ferrari’s Alonso was able third, with Button fourth and a great place from Liuzzi in fifth position.

Seven times world champion Michael Schumacher was maybe the biggest disappointment running only 13th position; team-mate scrapped a 10th-place position viewing that Ross Brawn didn’t totally have his head on Canada.

The race was started with a fragment that is dotingly expected at this part street track, with a lot of pushing and shoving from the off. The main notable was the Massa-Liuzzi clash which saw the Force India man undoes all the hard work from Saturday qualifying.
The untimely pace was set by RBR and McLaren, with Jenson holding up a big part of the pack untimely on. This gave Lewis a chance to get ahead despite the Red Bulls finally getting the better of him.

Tyres were the main trouble for the teams but the best thing yet to happen for the fans. They just didn’t last at any point during the weekend which made a one-stop strategy absolutely impossible. Following some very clever forward planning the McLaren team thought things through the best and it was inevitably theirs with a fair chunk of the race to go.

Fernando Alonso showed much better form with a third-place finish and would have taken second if he hadn’t been held up behind Chandhok which cost him his track place when he went in to pit. He was also foiled by the promising Toro Rosso man Buemi who guide the race at one point if only for a lap or two due to pit stops. He made a lovely pass on the great Schumacher and gets himself four points for his troubles.

Ferrari is going in to Valencia with a big upgrade in store and McLaren have one in the post of Silverstone.
