Yup, ads are super annoying. Trust me, I get it. This isn’t one of the websites that’s going to force you to whitelist this website or hide content behind expensive paywalls. Sites like those are ruining the free internet.

The Canadian Grand Prix is an event that I look forward to every season. I don’t know if it is just because I am a Canadian myself or because I just really love the track. Unfortunately this season, I am unable to watch the race live and will be forced to watch it, via VCR (you know, one of those old machines that plays a video cassette). I regret this, but I guess I will have to cope.
Although Nico Rosberg of Mercedes out-qualified his teammate Lewis Hamilton, I think that we will see Hamilton gain yet another lead and win back his first place status in the World Drivers’ Championship. The reason is because Hamilton was ahead of Rosberg in all of the free practice sessions and the first two qualifying sessions. Rosberg was only successful in earning the pole because he was able to beat Hamilton in the final qualifying session, by only 0.079 seconds. That is such a small gap, that it doesn’t show that Rosberg is superior.
As long as he doesn’t suffer a mechanical failure, I think that we will certainly see Sebastian Vettel of Red Bull in the final podium position. He doesn’t have the speed required to overtake the Mercedes cars, but his car should have enough power to stay in front of the others.
In the build up to the race, we have saw Fernando Alonso of Ferrari and Valtteri Bottas of Williams on top for the free practice and qualifying sessions. Both of these drivers seem to be consistently improving and in the race, they should have what it takes to get into the top five.
This should be a great race and I regret being unable to watch it live, but I will watch it as soon as become available. The top 5 results chart below will not be updated until then.
1 Lewis Hamilton
2 Nico Rosberg
3 Sebastian Vettel
4 Fernando Alonso
5 Valtteri Bottas
