World champion Sebastian Vettel arrives in Montreal, for the Canadian Grand Prix, leading the championship standings after his rivals stumbled in Monaco while he notched up second place. The Red Bull driver claims that he enjoys the rhythm of the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve even though he has yet to win at the semi-street circuit.

“The circuit has a nice rhythm and it’s one of the best races we have all year. The atmosphere and fans are great, the whole city lives F1 for the whole week and that makes us feel very special. I like it,” said Vettel.

Canada has dished up some dramatic races over the years, Vettel recalled, “Obviously one of the craziest moments was in 2011. There was so much rain; I haven’t seen that much rain carry on for so long since! During the race we had a big break and [we] were in the lead.”

“The race was difficult and with half a lap to go, I made my first mistake of the race which cost us the win. But that’s racing and it’s probably great for the fans to watch when they don’t know who is going to win until the last moment,” added the triple world champion.

    The Canadian GP is a great event! Great atmosphere, no Texans, usually pleasant weather, maple syrup served with everything, what’s not too like?

    Oh right the tyres. What are predicting 5 stoppers?

    One of the worst races for RBR though. They have never won here, and rarely even make it to the podium.
