After a successful race day in Monaco and a well-deserved rest week, Alex is now in Montreal, gearing up for the Canadian Grand Prix.
First held on the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve track in 1978, this venue has quickly become a driver favourite for many because of its high-speed racing.
This 14-corner track has plenty of overtaking opportunities, while changeable weather conditions can always throw a curveball in qualifying or on race day.
During Saturday’s knock-out session last year, our No.23 posted a 1:18.725 - the fastest time of the day as teams struggled to predict the wet track.
This circuit is start-stop in nature, with several heavy-braking chicanes and a tricky hairpin curve to negotiate. However, it remains extremely quick out of the corners.
Sector 3 is highlighted by the speed trap between 12 and 13, where Alex recorded the fastest time at the 2023 Canadian GP, clocking in at 343.0km/h (213.1mph).
The notorious Turn 14 wall, otherwise known as the Wall of Champions, lies in wait immediately after and leaves zero margin for error.
It is a standard race week, with FP1 and FP2 taking place Friday before final preparations in FP3 help prepare for Qualifying on Saturday to determine grid position for Sunday’s race.
We can’t wait to see Alex back on track and hope he can continue to build on his positive performances in Monaco!
