The 2016 Canadian Grand Prix (formally known as the Formula 1 Grand Prix du Canada 2016)[1] was a Formula One motor race that took place on 12 June 2016 at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.[1] The race was the seventh round of the 2016 FIA Formula One World Championship and marked the fifty-third running of the Canadian Grand Prix as a round of the Formula One World Championship since the series' inception in 1950. The race was won by Lewis Hamilton.

Report[edit]

Background[edit]

Daniil Kvyat and Marcus Ericsson both took three-place grid penalties for causing avoidable accidents during the previous race in Monaco.[4] After heavily damaging his car in an accident during the Monaco Grand Prix, Renault prepared a brand new Renault R.S.16 chassis for Jolyon Palmer for the race.

Tyre supplier Pirelli made the soft, supersoft and ultrasoft tyres available to teams for the race.[5] Renault and Haas chose radical tyre allocation strategies, with both teams avoiding the supersoft compound entirely.
