Opti do you want to start am f1 thread. I see there are some big changes coming this weekend to Ferrari and red bull and I want to see what you're thinking

Yeah. Both Red Bull cars will have the upgraded engine Ricciardo ran in Monaco and killed them with all through practice and quali.

And Ferrari and Honda bringing upgraded engines too.

Much different track through. Power way more important in Montreal than Monaco.

I've been waiting on this race for a couple weeks now. I'm not sure how much faster Ferrari is going to be but I am going to take a chance and hit Vettel, Raikkonen and Ricciardo early before practice starts. It seems like each race everyone is getting closer to Mercedes. We all know Riccardo should have won Monaco, what a freakin disaster in the pits.

Found this link on another forum, I am sure it's not ground breaking news to you Opti - Just for the better of the community here.

I was also doing some research on previous fastest lap winners - once again I'm sure not a surpise or top secret info but Kimmi won fastest lap here last year.

Looking like Merc power is going to win out based on Friday.

Hard to tell yet how much better the Ferrari engine upgrades are. Vettel put in some fast single laps but both Red bulls seemed consistent and the drivers happy afterward.


That said, it's supposed to rain on Sunday... so all this might mean squat.

Out of the 6 drivers on Mercedes, red bull and Ferrari teams who do you think is the best at running in the rain?

Vettel has driven a few stunners in the wet. Ricciardo and  Vestappen will pick up an advantage as engine power will be much less important. Actually I guess that will help Vettel too v Mercedes.

All six are good in wet really. Rosberg only one a bit suspect if pushed to say.

wow this ace on at same time as the CUP race on Sunday afternoon at 2pm on NBC main network.   Guess cause it's in Canada.  Can't say I'll watch 1 lap of it but already have 1 bet and will have 1-2 more probably at least longshots for fast lap.  If I'm wrong about the time please I form me of the correct one.  Thank u

It's going to depend on the weather but the top 6 are too much faster than everyone else without some sort of 'surprise' to give the fast lap to a real long shot this race I think.


Hamilton on pole ahead of Rosberg. Both Vettel and Riciardo put in amazing last moment laps to get pretty close to Mercedes and make it look like we might have a race on our hands for the win tomorrow. Well, maybe...

 Didn't end up having a bet.


Kimi or Vettel looking strong for fastest lap for you Mike.
