Charles Leclerc made the Italian anthem ring out in Monaco thanks to his sparkling victory. As the races progress, the Reds seem to get closer to Red Bull, and this is reflected in the manufacturers' ranking; Ferrari is now “only” 24 points behind the reigning world champions. The battle promises to be extremely close for the rest of the season. Next stop, Montreal.

The Canadian Grand Prix could well be an important turning point of the season. Indeed, over the last three meetings, three teams have won. Between racing facts and more than atypical tracks, it is still complicated to assert that Ferrari and McLaren have come back to the level of Red Bull. The Gilles Villeneuve circuit, which is a more traditional layout than the previous ones, will probably be able to give us a clear overview of the hierarchy in the first three positions.

Ferrari, is it back?

Thanks to its victory in the Principality, Scuderia Ferrari arrives in Canada fully revitalized with the ambition of signing a second consecutive victory, which has not happened since 2019 (Belgian Grand Prix then Italian Grand Prix). « Earlier this season we went to Japan with a wave of enthusiasm following the victory of Carlos Sainz in Australia and now we feel the same feeling in Canada following Charles Leclerc's triumph in Monaco, explains Fred Vasseur team principal of the Reds. Everyone is motivated and prepared as much as possible for this Grand Prix. »

The French engineer, however, remains cautious about Ferrari's chances of success across the Atlantic and knows that once again, the battle will be fierce.

« The Montreal track is very different from that of Monaco. It is much faster, it requires less aerodynamic downforce and there are more overtaking possibilities. He continues. This is not to say that our approach to the weekend will change one way or another. We are moving in the right direction technically, on our strategic decisions from the pit wall and teamwork in general. We managed to close the gap even further to the team leading both championships, but the gaps between us, McLaren and Red Bull are very narrow. The smallest detail can make the difference. »
