DOES ASTON MARTIN HAVE A DREAM OF WINNING? ANSWERS BY MIKE KRACK
Mike Krack, Aston Martin Team Principalbelieves that a victory in Canada is possible in rainy conditions because the chances of a surprise increase. “We’ll see, why not? In these situations, anything can happen. If we make the right decision at the right time, together with the quality of the drivers, anything is possible”.
There were 70 laps remaining, with a wet track and the threat of rain during the race.
Alonso and the mistake that cost him pole
The Asturian revealed the point at which he believes he lost two tenths that could have put him on pole at the 2024 F1 Canadian GP: Alonso reveals mistake that cost him pole position in Canada: “Those tenths could have been there”
Checo Pérez also needs to return
This is how ‘Checo’ Pérez explained after the poor classification of the 2024 F1 Canadian GP: ‘Checo’ Pérez: “Our qualification was an absolute disaster”
Sainz will start 12th after a bad day for Ferrari that they didn’t expect
Sainz finished 12th in the Canadian classification, a track where much was expected of the Ferraris and where they suffered, with Leclerc also eliminated in Q2. His remarks after qualifying: Sainz and Ferrari’s unforeseen complications in Canada: “We don’t understand it”.
Alonso and his regret for not taking pole:
The Spaniard stressed that he went into qualifying with a new, more blind set-up, and that it pained him to be just two tenths away from pole, knowing that “nobody does a perfect lap”. This is Alonso’s reaction that says it all after staying near pole in Canada.
THIS IS THE BATTLE FOR THE POLE:
We remember how the tense and unexpected Yesterday’s Canadian F1 GP classification 2024: Russell and Verstappen set the same pole time in a crazy Canadian qualifier!
THE STARTING GRID OF THE 2024 F1 CANADA GP:
Note the boot order: Here’s how the 2024 F1 Canadian GP starting grid looks: Ferrari, in trouble and Alonso sighs
MARIO ISOLA, FROM PIRELLI, CLARIFIES MANY DOUBTS IN DAZN F1: WHICH TIRES TO CHOOSE IN THESE CONDITIONS?
“I would say it’s for intermediates, but there are parts of the track that are for extreme rain. It’s not raining now but it will rain again. I wouldn’t want to be a strategist right now.”
THE ASPHALT RUNS A LITTLE BUT IT DIES QUICKLY AND HAS GRIP: “The new asphalt is very smooth and you can see how the water does not penetrate the asphalt. On Friday we saw that it dries quickly and the level of grip is low but it is not drinkable. It is a good balance. The asphalt does not release oil, something typical of the new asphalt, and makes it slippery The hardest decision today is which tire to wear for the race.
“If I see the images from now, I will say that I will choose heavy rain. But I bet that most will start in the intermediate because with 20 cars on the track in the first laps the asphalt will be dry and those who start in heavy rain must go to the pits to change tires. So they bet at the beginning to start at intermission if it doesn’t rain.”
EXIT LAPS TO THE GRILL
F1 cars do the usual three warm-up laps to test the track before the race. And right now we’re seeing complications with very wet asphalt. Sargeant went wide at the final chicane and also struggled with acceleration.
TRACK VERY WATERPROOFED FOR THE MOMENT
Right now, there are 35 minutes left before the race starts F1 Canadian GP 2024, the track was waterlogged in many curves due to the poor drainage of a very new asphalt with little roughness. We will see if the operators manage to improve the track condition and if the cars can start in the intermediates. IT MAY BE POSSIBLE TO FIGHT INTERMEDIATE YES. With rain tires, I find it complicated…
‘Safety’ must review the state of the track and the FIA ​​must make decisions shortly.
ATTENTION TO VISIBILITY: RUNNING IS DIFFICULT WITH RAIN GONG. BECAUSE?
The first thing to understand is that if the race is for heavy rain tires, it can be dangerous and the FIA ​​can delay the start (although so far they have not commented). On the one hand there is aquaplaning, where any driver can lose control of his car and crash into a wall, even if only for the simple fact of accelerating in a straight line. Second, because the new Canadian asphalt doesn’t drain well and if it rains hard there will be puddles in many corners. But even without aquaplaning, the main drawback is zero visibility.
Rain tires work in an extraordinary way, evacuation of 85 liters/second of water at a speed of 300 km/hwhich it raises a ‘spray’ of water behind each car making it impossible for the drivers behind to see anything. That’s the main problem with current F1 cars in the rain. Without those wheels, they can’t roll in water… but at the same time, they are so good that visibility is zero and it’s not safe to run in a row because it increases the risk of a serious accident.

THERE MAY BE SURPRISES. ALONSO AND SAINZ, GO FOR IT
The scenario seems very good for surprises to occur if the race can be conducted with good visibility. They will try to fish Fernando Alonso, a water mage and came out in 5th position. In races like this is where you can make a difference and try to go for a victory that in the drought this year seems more likely than last year. Furthermore Sainz, which starts on the 12th with the need to take strategic risks to get back. Just like his partner Leclerc, 11th, or Pérez, 16th. But let’s not forget Verstappena wet genius coming out 2nd after Russell (1st) and in front of two McLaren.
NOW IT HAS STOPPED RAINING. CAN YOU COMPETE WITH SOMETHING LIKE THIS?
Now it has stopped raining and it is now in heavy rain. But it is expected to rain again. Intermittent rain. crazy Let’s see if the FIA ​​allows cars to start from a standstill in these track conditions or if we have to wait. Will find out later. Be careful because in some curves there are puddles, all due to the fact that the circuit has reappeared and the new asphalt is very fine and not too granular, something that worsens the flow of water.
F1 GP CANADA | WHAT IF IT RAINES HARD?
But calm down first, because we already know how much it costs for current F1 cars to compete in races in the rain due to zero visibility due to the massive spray of water raised by the diffuser of the F1 cars and the water that released with too much rain. Pirelli’s extreme rain tires are so good and evacuate so many liters of water that F1 cars can compete without suffering aquaplaning… but at the same time, in racing something very unsafe because the cars behind the other can’t see anything because of that spray.
F1 GP CANADA | It rained before the race
It’s raining in Canada! It’s been raining continuously in Canada and the track is wet, so a lot of excitement is expected on the track. Water can change everything for many reasons. If the rain stops and the track dries, the key in GP is to put on the soft tires as soon as possible but at the right time, without causing yourself to be too slow or make a mistake that will send you into the wall. That can add a lot of excitement to the race, because anything can happen.
It can also be a bigger lottery if it stops raining and then it rains again.
