Red Bull Racing Canadian GP Preview
My favourite thing about Canada is the laid-back attitude of the fans, which makes the atmosphere very good. The track has traditionally thrown up very interesting races due to the street circuit layout and because the
low downforce configuration that we race in provides some good overtaking.
Itís always nice to get the feeling that thereís a GP in town even when weíre away from the track and thatís certainly the case in Montreal. The track should provide all the teams with a fresh challenge this year, as it will be the first time we run the cars with a completely different aerodynamic set-up to deal with the long straights, but the RB7 should be pretty tidy. I qualified on the front row there last year, but itís a track that Red Bull Racing has yet to crack on Sunday afternoon.Ē
Canada is a very unique place. Itís not a real track because itís on an island and also used for public roads. Itís a bit similar to Albert Park in Melbourne, as itís mainly used for traffic with a second function as a race track. Itís very slippery there, the asphalt is very smooth and we saw last year that tyre degradation is huge, but itís always good fun to go there. Itís a great race, the atmosphere is fantastic and the fans are very special. Itís the only time we go to North America to race and itís really a cool place with the city and people. Itís nice to spend a week there to go racing, so Iím really looking forward to it.
