Canadian Grand Prix

Canadian Grand Prix-Winners, Qualifying, Circuits, Track

The most renowned Grand Prix in the F1 calendar first witnessed the Canadian ground in 1967. The inception of the event as a part of the F1 World Championship started in the circuit of Ontario. It moved to Mont-Tremblant, the circuit in Quebec for the weekend of 1968 and 1970.

In the hopes of preserving the safety of every driver, in 1978, the authorities and the organizers held the Canadian Grand Prix at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.

An entire decade later, F1 found a permanent home for their event. Originally recognized as the Ile Notre-Dame Circuit, it was later known as the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve following the surprising death of Villeneuve in 1982.

The Canadian Grand Prix has always kept the stir of excitement in the air throughout its existence in the F1 world. The F1 weekend was at a halt in 2009 until the renewal of the contract in 2010. The tenure of the new contract stretched across five F1 seasons, till 2014.

The race for this season, fixed in mid-June, was checked out of the F1 calendar for the ongoing virus situation.
