Seriously, who is a fan of Lance Stroll? From the top-4 teams, he looks farthest from a podium finish despite racing a car that’s scored five podiums this year. In fact, six drivers have scored their maiden Formula 1 win in Canada through history but it seems highly unlikely that Stroll Jr. will add his name to this list.
Anyway, Aston Martin are bringing upgrades to their car for the 2023 Canadian Grand Prix. Let’s see if Fernando Alonso’s wish to ‘crush’ Mercedes comes true.
In this episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, Soumil Arora and Kunal Shah preview the upcoming race at Circuit Giles Villeneuve. Red Bull Racing’s dominant run could see them match Mercedes’ best race-winning streak from 2019 – 8 wins on the trot. In fact, Red Bull Racing could celebrate a century of wins – becoming only the 5th constructor in the history of sport to do so.
Mercedes will be out to prove that their double podium result in Spain wasn’t track or weather dependent. The buzz around Ferrari will be around their historic win in Le Mans. And finally, will Williams repay Red Bull Racing the favour while declaring the upgrades on Alexander Albon’s car?😉
