Formula One 2014: Circuit Gilles Villeneuve

Renault’s engines are a huge FAIL and threaten everyone who uses them with 5 position grid penalties for the rest of the season.  Red Bull is threatening to sue.  Both drivers have been through 3 engines, transmissions, and kinetic energy units and Vettel has ripped through 4 engine control systems (3 for Ricciardo).  And this is race 7 of 19.  Kobayashi has already picked up a 5 Grid penalty this weekend which is not very effective since he was already starting 20th.  Gutierrez was unable to Qualify at all due to chassis damage.

Hamilton and Rosberg are feuding over Rosberg deliberately bringing out a Yellow at Monaco costing Hamilton the pole and the win.

Caterham is on the auction block and there is a great debate among the teams over further budget caps.  Haas Racing will definitely not field a car during the 2015 season and will stick with their plans for a 2016 debut.

While like Monaco the walls are very close, instead of being the slowest this is one of the fastest tracks.  On offer are Softs and Super Softs with about a 1 second per lap advantage.  They’ve just signed a new 10 year contract for the venue.

Pretty tables below.
