Ferrari ridiculed after posting image of 'Montreal' showing Toronto skyline

Droves of race fans and drivers will soon be Montreal-bound to enjoy Grand Prix weekend, but one of the most notable vehicle companies seems to be a little confused about which city they're actually heading to.

Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel, of Germany, waits as mechanics work on his vehicle during the second practice session at the Canadian Grand Prix, Friday, June 8, 2018, in Montreal.

The Brackley-based outfit had originally planned to bring the second of the three allocated engines each of Formula 1's 10 teams is provided with across the 21-race season.

Mercedes also typically struggle to extract the same level of performance from softer tyres than their rivals and have been more conservative in their approach with just five sets of Hypersoft and five Ultrasoft, compared to eight and three sets respectively for both Ferrari and Red Bull.

Sebastian Vettel got the jump on world champion Lewis Hamilton as Mercedes blundered their calculations on the Ferrari ace's pit stop under Virtual Safety Car (VSC) conditions. Naturally it's degraded, you lose horsepower over races.

"It's one that I've always loved driving on".

However, Mercedes insisted that the decision would not affect performance or reliability.

Vettel stood top the podium in 2013 while Australian Ricciardo was the last driver to beat Hamilton to the finish coming home first in 2014. Gilles Villeneuve, the Berthierville, Que., native the track is named for, won the 1978 race.


And it will feature two Canadians on track - second-year Williams pilot Lance Stroll of Montreal and Nicolas Latifi of Toronto, who will drive a Force India auto in the Friday practice only.

"We still have work to do", Vettel said.

"I've enjoyed some great races in Canada and I won there in 2006, so it's a special place for me".

He is hoping to build on last year's appearance at his hometown track, when as a rookie he earned the first points of his Formula One career.

"As a team, we're not where we want to be - but in many ways it's also been very positive in my view".

"And, it's a very long year". I'm looking forward to the rest of the season.

"Hopefully we can turn things around and pick up some more points and go on to have a great rest of the season".
