Montreal is the 7th leg of the championship. Drivers will complete 70 laps across the 4.36 KM circuit, reaching speeds up to 350km/h.

The Gilles-Villeneuve circuit is known as the toughest track of the year on brakes because of all the stops, yet from what several of the drivers are saying, it is also one of the most thrilling to race on.
