Toro Rosso drivers preview the Canadian Grand Prix, Round 7 of the 2015 Formula 1 World Championship, at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve on the Ile Notre-Dame in Montreal.
Max Verstappen (Car 33): “I’m feeling fine now after the unfortunate end to the Monaco Grand Prix and there are no after affects from the crash. I even spent a day karting afterwards so everything is fine on the physical side. Canada will be a challenging race for us with its long straights, but I think we can have another strong weekend anyway. It will be the first time for me in Canada and I’ve heard a lot of great things about the circuit, the city and the country so I’m looking forward to it.”
Carlos Sainz (Car 55): “Canada will be another completely new track for me. It’s a semi-street circuit and like the last venue in Monaco, you can get very close to the walls at the side of the track. I was in Montreal last year, as I went to watch the Grand Prix, and I really enjoyed spending time in the city, which I liked a lot and the track itself looks very interesting. I’m looking forward to my first experience of driving the track, which looks as though it provides some good overtaking opportunities. We will again have the Soft and Supersoft tyres and we can expect high degradation, so it could be a challenging weekend on that front.”
