Canadian Grand Prix
The Canadian Grand Prix has been part of the Championship since 1967 and is one of its most breath-taking backdrops. The current circuit was created in 1977, motivated by the French-Canadian adoration of Gilles Villeneuve. They had the inspired idea of taking Ile Notre-Dame and connecting all the island roads to make a circuit. The island is peppered with breathtakingly futuristic buildings, a perfect setting for a race famous for its focus on engineering and innovation.
A classic fixture on the Grand Prix circuit, the Montreal race is an opportunity to take in both the thrill of F1 and the pleasures of this cultural and historic hub renowned for its architecture and food. Originally named Île Notre-Dame Circuit – for the man-made island that it calls home – the Gilles Villeneuve Circuit is a tight track – with perilous barriers and a spine-tingling hairpin bend. The ‘jetset’ descend on Montreal for the Grand Prix du Canada, making the elite Paddock Club a hub where celebrities, racing legends and leading global business enjoy some of the finest comforts and vistas Formula 1 has to offer.
