The 2013 Canadian Grand Prix (formally known as the Formula 1 Grand Prix du Canada 2013)[1] was a Formula One motor race that took place on 9 June 2013 at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal, Canada.[3] The race was the seventh round of the 2013 season, and marked the 50th running of the Canadian Grand Prix.

After taking pole position, Sebastian Vettel took his and Red Bull's first victory at the Canadian Grand Prix, just over 14 seconds ahead of second-placed Fernando Alonso.[4]

The event was marred by the death of track marshal Mark Robinson,[5][6] who was run over by a recovery vehicle. The accident happened while marshals were removing the Sauber of Esteban Gutiérrez after the Mexican had spun off during the closing stages of the race. Robinson died later in hospital,[7] and became the first trackside death in Formula One since that of marshal Graham Beveridge at the 2001 Australian Grand Prix.

Report[edit]

Background[edit]

Tyre supplier Pirelli brought its white-banded medium compound tyre as the harder "prime" tyre and the red-banded supersoft compound tyre as the softer "option" tyre, as opposed to the previous year where soft and supersoft selection were provided.

Qualifying[edit]

The three qualifying sessions were held on 8 June. Q1 was rain-affected.

Q1[edit]

Force India's Paul di Resta, Caterham's Charles Pic, Lotus F1 Romain Grosjean Marussia's Jules Bianchi and Max Chilton, and Caterham's Giedo van der Garde were all knocked out in Q1.

Q2[edit]

Sauber's Nico Hülkenberg, McLaren's Sergio Pérez, Williams' Pastor Maldonado, McLaren's Jenson Button, Sauber's Esteban Gutiérrez, and Ferrari's Felipe Massa were all eliminated in Q2. Massa caused a red flag after crashing into the barriers in turn 3. Williams' Valtteri Bottas became the first rookie driver in 2013 to make it into Q3.

Q3[edit]

Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel took pole position for the Canadian Grand Prix with a time of 1:25.425, beating Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton by 0.087 seconds. Williams' Valtteri Bottas was a surprise third.

Kimi Räikkönen and Daniel Ricciardo were given two-place penalties for not lining up in the designated 'fast lane' at the pit exit in the rush to get out after the Q2 red flag. Räikkönen would start from 10th and Ricciardo 11th on the grid.[8]
