“Formula 1 cars in 1994 had considerably less protection around a driver’s head than they do today.”, And considerably less downforce…the sad thing is that todays cars would probably be safe enough and capable enough to be able to use the circuits the way they were pre-1994…. I remember a battle between Alesi and Senna in 1993 heading out of the hairpin side by side and racing in to the fast right-left-right with two of the bravest drivers at the time I remember curling my toes in anticipation because despite Alesi having the inside for the first part Senna held out for the right hand corner. I think ive got footage of it on one of the season review videos. A nice race but i would not come back. Norris: Stroll never learns from mistakes.
With this circuit though it does seem like the changes to the track have all improved the racing. Circuit Gilles Villeneuve is a racing venue in Canada with 60 lap times.This page represents the 4.4 kilometer (2.7 mile) configuration of this track. Im with you on that, i pretty certain that there was a Chicane at some point on the long back straight.
Boom, instant retirement! It doesn’t really have anything to do with the amount of run-off. He didn’t say “the sme corner”, but “the run from Tamburello to Tosa”. The best result for villeneuve. It’s a shame they couldn’t find more runoff for the right-left-right of the original course. I had a map marked with the various speeds – which was just as well because, otherwise, I might not have believed what I was seeing. We were surprised even then that they would allow spectators to be just inches from the track.
Yes. Just enough run off to not be dangerous, but not enough to allow drivers who make mistakes to get away with it. In 1980 championship contenders Alan Jones and Nelson Piquet tangled there, and Piquet had to switch to his spare car for the restart.
Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. Canada is always a good race – just a shame I can’t be in neighbouring Quebec this weekend :(, CareyPatrick (@careypatrick) 10th December 2012, 17:44.

Red Bull won the support of Mercedes on Saturday for a call to freeze Formula One's engine rules so they might continue using Honda's power unit after the Japanese have left at the end of 2021. The Canadian Grand Prix first appeared on the Formula 1 calendar back in 1978, and minus 1987 and 2009, it has been a part of the Formula 1 calendar ever since. Lewis Hamilton claimed a record 92nd Formula One victory at the Portuguese Grand Prix, moving him clear of Michael Schumacher for the most wins in the sport's history. Circuit Gilles Villeneuve: 670: Interlagos: 650: Red Bull Ring: 650: Marina Bay: 520: Hockenheimring: 500: Monaco: 470: Nice and simple table, every track in 2016 sorted by the length of their longest straight. It was not elegant but we had to do something in the limited amount of time before the 1994 Grand Prix. Was definately there in 1995 because I remember it from the ‘Formula 1’ game on the PlayStation, which was 1995 season-based. Promoted content from around the web | Become a RaceFans Supporter to hide this ad and others. i was there in 1996. I know where the circuits go, but sometimes it’s a little hard to see the previous incarnations. A particularly famous part of the circuit is the wall on the outside of the exit of the final chicane before the start/finish straight. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zpwz5bdXXtU, Old Montreal layout, RFactor 1979 mod and track.
I do believe it was the 1994 and 1995 seasons. Nowadays its ten feet minimum with catch fence, etc. And while I have no trouble with it because I’ve been following the sport for so long, newcomers might struggle.
The track on the Ile Notre-Dame was originally thought of as a rather sterile facility, compared to the undulating Mosport and Mont Tremblant tracks which held the race before it. Insert good old days picture/map of any number of tracks, then on the following page you could show how they have ****** it up with tight corners and endless tarmac run off. There’s a few fast left-right flicks gone and they would have been exciting, but the way the circuit is now it’s probably better for overtaking.

You should have seen Gilles Villeneuve take it flat out in his 1979 ground effects Ferrari, as I did. Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, Montreal – circuit information The Canadian Grand Prix had previously been held at Mosport Park and Mont Tremblant, but in 1978 a new venue on the Isle Notre Dame in Montreal held the race for the first time. The original start line and pits was at the exit of the tighter of the two hairpins at the north end of the track at the north end of the track. The lack of space to build additional run-off has meant the circuit remained relatively unchanged for over 30 years. This led to some near-misses, and a controversial collision between Michael Schumacher and Heinz-Harald Frentzen in 1998. The bump would destabilize the car (as the suction was broken) and Villeneuve’s Ferrari would twitch violently for a fraction of a second before regaining the ground effect.

Sounds alot like the tyre chicane described by Martin Brundle, but I know it wasn’t that race as there was no way I was going to be allowed to watch a race starting at 2am my time (Aus) when I was 8 years old… Or am I making that up? But those fast, bumpy curves with little run-off where the collision took place were eradicated in the mid-nineties. With the Canadian Grand Prix having been in search of a permanent home for a number of years in the 1960s and 1970s, the Circuit Ile Notre-Dame first hosted the race in 1978.

Moving the start/finish line and pits.
Robert Kubica survived an even higher-speed crash heading towards the hairpin at the end of the lap in 2007. It was AMAZING to see the change of direction and then the cars would whip right past you ( no safety barrier, just the wall) at at least 150MPH. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uRiBA2g9cUA, At times like these, I really wish I could watch youtube videos at work…. Daniel du Plessis 11th February 2016, 5:58. I would love to go the this race one day! Mercedes backs Red Bull's plan to take over Honda F1 project.

That year with the v10’s you needed earplugs, otherwise due to the track configuration, the noise was a torture. Its engine let him down in the race, and Jones won the title.
The most spectacular sight I can recall in all my years of viewing motorsports up close. Chin up princesses!! Barriers run close to the circuit and many experienced drivers have been caught out by them. I might just be crazy, or perhaps it was an indy race i watched there or something….
Lando Norris suggested Lance Stroll does not learn from mistakes after they collided while fighting for position during the Portuguese Grand Prix. Length: 4.361km (2.71 miles) How the track has changed. I think you can see the earlier part of the circuit on the google map above. Details for the Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve used for the Canadian Grand Prix 2019 . that was changed early on I think, when they removed the extra left right combination down towards what is now the first turn.
