Formula 1 breaks away from the European leg of the calendar for a brief trip across the Atlantic and the Canadian Grand Prix this weekend.

Fresh from winning in Monaco, Lewis Hamilton has strengthened his championship position and now holds a 17-point buffer to teammate Valtteri Bottas as Mercedes saw its streak of one-two finishes come to an end.

The reigning world champion squad heads to Montreal looking to make it seven wins from seven races to continue its near-perfect start to the 2019 season, though rivals Ferrari will be desperate to hit back and finally get off the mark with victory this year.

Mercedes is expected to be boosted by its first engine upgrade of the season, which could aid Hamilton’s bid to match another Michael Schumacher record by joining the German on seven wins in Canada. Hamilton and Mercedes have traditionally been strong around the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, though Ferrari won last year’s event and holds a top speed advantage – which should come in handy at a circuit largely dominated by straights.
