Red Bull preview the Canadian GP

A "special" track that is a favourite amongst the Red Bull drivers, Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen are excited for the Canadian GP…

Daniel Ricciardo:  “I love Canada, I love Montreal, the city’s great and I really enjoy the circuit. I like the people a lot, it’s a very friendly city – it’s easily one of my top five races.

“It’s a place where you can really muscle the car around   the chicanes which is fun. I love the race – my first win in Canada will always be special so I’m keen to get back there.

“Unfortunately last year was probably my worst race of the year but I hope it will be a lot better this year.

“The city is a lot like Melbourne in a way; there are plenty of things to do, there’s a lot of culture, it’s very European, and the people are super friendly. I also love the local cuisine. The Poutine is so good! I had it on the Sunday night after the race last year. Lobster Poutine actually, which was gourmet and it was so damn good."

Max Verstappen:  “The track is quite special as it has a lot of long straights and then slow corners with low grip so we have to find the right balance with our setup. I like the braking area heading into the last hairpin where there are a lot of people watching who always cheer us on. You’re very close to the walls so there is a special feeling to drive there.

“Hopefully with the new engine update it should be a positive race for us. We’ll try and aim for a podium."
