Pascal Wehrlein is putting the disappointing Monaco Grand Prix behind him, as he starts to look forward to the Canadian Grand Prix this weekend.

The Sauber F1 Team driver endured a difficult Grand Prix at the Monte Carlo street circuit, as he was left extremely frustrated after being taken out in an incident with the McLaren Honda Formula 1 Team of Jenson Button. The incident saw Wehrlein end up face to face with the barrier at Portier, as the C36 tipped onto its side.

For the German, the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve is one that suits him well, as it’s a mixture of a street track and a racing track.

“I am looking forward to the Canadian Grand Prix very much,” said Wehrlein. “In Montreal there will be many events this weekend to celebrate the Grand Prix.

“The track suits me well. It is a mixture of a street track and a racing track – a traditional race with a long history. Next to the engine power, a high braking stability, traction and good change of direction are the most important factors.

“The long straights offer good overtaking opportunities. Depending on the weather, the car’s aerodynamic configuration will also play an important role.”
