Can Kimi Raikkonen stop the Mercedes in Canada?

Lewis Hamilton wins the 2015 Canadian GP

Lap 70: Hamilton is told to look after his fuel as he begins his final lap, and he replies with a short, sharp “leave me to it.” Hamilton has enough of a gap to see it home without Rosberg in his mirrors and he’s grabbed his fourth win in Montreal! It hasn’t been a classic by any means, but Hamilton was near-flawless right from lights out. Rosberg claims second to minimise the championship points damage.

2015 Canadian GP: lights out!

Lap 1: Hamilton gets a quick start leaving Rosberg and Raikkonen to fend off Bottas and Grosjean behind them. Vettel jumps two places up to P16 while Jenson Button serves his drive-through penalty for failing to take part in qualifying.

The grid

Around ten minutes until things get under way in Canada. Here’s the grid, bookended by British world champions each with reason to be fed up with their teams right now.

1 Hamilton 2 Rosberg

3 Raikkonen 4 Bottas

5 Grosjean 6 Maldonado

7 Hulkenberg 8 Kvyat

9 Ricciardo 10 Perez

11 Sainz 12 Ericsson

13 Alonso 14 Nasr

15 Massa 16 Merhi

17 Stevens 18 Vettel

19 Verstappen 20 Button

2014 Canadian GP

Last year’s race in Montreal certainly didn’t disappoint. Hamilton pulled over in lap 48, car billowing with smoke following brakes failure, leaving Massa to chase Vettel, Perez, Ricciardo and Rosberg. Ricciardo picked off race-leader Rosberg with two laps remaining, before Perez clipped Massa and both piled into the barriers in a huge crash at the start of the final lap to leave Ricciardo to cruise to his first F1 grand prix victory under yellow flags.

If someone is to stop Mercedes’ dominance in Montreal it will most likely be Kimi Raikkonen. The weekend has brought mixed fortunes for Ferrari after introducing a new power unit.

The Fin will start from P3 after qualifying four tenths back from Rosberg and not showing the improved performance Ferrari were expecting – though the real boost might show in race pace. But it was a disastrous qualifying for his team-mate: Vettel suffered power failure in Q1 before being demoted three places after overtaking Ricardo Merhi under red flags, and will start from P18.

Then again, it’s a fun track to rip through the field from the back as Jenson Button proved in 2011. That must all seem a long time ago for Button as reliability woes continue to dog his season. He starts at the back after energy-recovery system failure caused him to miss qualifying completely behind Max Verstappen, who has been hit with a double grid-wammy.
