Canadian GP brings a unique atmosphere according to Vettel

The Formula 1 circus heads away from Europe this weekend for the Canadian Grand Prix. Sebastian Vettel, who won last year's event in Canada is looking forward to the "unique atmosphere" in Montreal.

The Gilles Villeneuve Circuit is a track which receives plenty of positive reviews from drivers up and down the grid. Vettel is no different.

"Canada is a race we drivers really look forward to. We race on an island right in Montreal, a fantastic place full of fans that ensure a unique atmosphere. Usually, the track starts off really slippery and it takes quite a while to rubber in and provide a decent level of grip," Vettel said.

"The track is also known for being stop-and-go, with long straights and heavy braking points, split up by a few slow corners and some chicanes where you need to use the kerbs a lot. The final part of the lap is usually the key."

Last's year victory in Canada will seem so far away to those inside the Ferrari garage. Even though Mercedes is looking dominant, Vettel is dreaming of repeating his 2018 success.

"Last year, I started from pole and won the race, 40 years after Gilles Villeneuve won here. I will do my utmost to get a good result," Vettel added.
