FROM THE COCKPIT eSTebAN GUTIeRReZ “For the entire race the car was difficult to drive, and I was always pushing to the limit. Right from the start everyone was closing in. The first set of tyres was difficult to drive on and a one stop would have been impossible. When I came out from my second pit stop into the fist corner, I went over one of the bumps, the front locked up and I couldn’t stop.” NICO HUlKeNbeRG “It’s disappointing to finish a race like this. Lapping can be troublesome, but these guys are racing too and have things happenings in the race, the same as us. I lapped Giedo van der Garde and braked. At first I didn’t feel anything until I came out of the corner and realised the car wasn’t going straight, so we decided to stop. even after we lost positions at the start of the race, we didn’t really have the pace today. I was fighting for 14th and couldn’t do much more. Of course this is not an ideal way to end a race, but in the end we wouldn’t have gained much more.” GIeDO VAN DeR GARDe “I had a great start, passed four cars and was up to 17th by lap two. We’d started on the supersofts and the first set were done pretty quickly so we boxed on lap eight for a set of mediums and my pace on those for the first few laps was OK ... On lap 33 I came back in for another set of mediums but then I had to box for the stop / go I had from the contact with Mark. The temperatures went straight up after the penalty and I had to come back in almost immediately so we could check the car and they found a visor tear-off in one of the radiators which had been causing problems for most of the race. shortly after that I was heading towards the hairpin with Hulkenberg alongside. I moved over for him but he turned in in front of me in the braking zone and we made contact and that was the end of my race” The GPWeeK driver of the day award goes to... PAuL DI ResTA The Canadian Grand Prix started badly for the Force India driver, with a saturday characterised by issues with the car that left di Resta in 17th place on sunday’s grid. But the scottish racer delivered a sterling performance throughout the seventy laps of Montreal’s Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, gaining track position by staying out on his medium compound tyres until lap 56. The strategy saw di Resta finish the race ahead of his teammate, despite lining up five rows behind him on the grid. It was a masterclass in tyre preservation and pure determination. 39 GPWEEK.com // 39 GPWEEK.com // PARTNERS: F1 >>> CANADA
