2019 Canadian Grand Prix interactive data: lap charts, times and tyres

2019 Canadian Grand Prix

Valtteri Bottas took the bonus point for fastest lap in the Canadian Grand Prix after making an extra pit stop at the end of the race to fit a fresh set of tyres.

Charles Leclerc could have done the same and Ferrari did suggest it to him. However he preferred to press on in pursuit of the race leaders, hoping to take advantage of an incident between them.

He almost did, though he was unaware of it. Leclerc came within a second of beating Sebastian Vettel to second place due to his team mate’s five second penalty. Leclerc was unaware of his team mate’s situation, and you have to wonder whether he might have found that last second he needed had he known what was at stake.

Starting on the hard tyres paid off for Lance Stroll and Max Verstappen, who were the race’s biggest movers. The Racing Point driver climbed eight places to finish on the points at home.

Take a look at the Canadian Grand Prix data in full below. Note it does not take post-race time penalties into account.

  1. 1. Its amazing how Gasly in the RBH was consistently slower than Renaults Daniel. There is something very good about that Renault engine after their upgrade in Monaco, especially on the straights.
    2. Renault’s pace on the 30 odd laps old hard tyres dropped significantly after Daniel was overtaken by Valterri. The difference is alarming. Was Daniel trying to conserve his engine/tyres from further wear ? This was also the time Hulkenberg closed up on Daniel and i guess team orders ensued. Shame.
    3. Lance Stroll in the RP made a very late pitstop. Turned out to be an extremely good strategy for them. Not just that, prior to his pitstop , he was consistently setting similar lap times to Carlos Sainz and Gasly. That upgraded PU from Mercerdes seems to be working well for them. Commendable performance at home for Stroll.

    1. @webtel
      1) But then Verstappen was consistently faster than both. So …
      2) Ricciardo’s pace is hardly different after Bottas passed him

      It’s sad to see that again Leclerc was the fastest racer for Ferrari, yet they gave Vettel the benefit of the tow (and therefore pole). And then Vettel chocked and threw it away.

      Would be nice if they at least gave Leclerc the #1 status for a race. Just to see how that goes for a change. Vettel is clearly not getting it done.

      1. @f1osaurus

        1) But then Verstappen was consistently faster than both. So …

        I agree, it is for this reason that i didnt mention Max in my comments. He did a good job. My apprehensions were about Gasly and that Renault have made a significant improvement compared to earlier this year.

        2) Ricciardo’s pace is hardly different after Bottas passed him

        I dont get your comment here–i checked the lap times, Valtteri was atleast a second faster each lap after the overtake. Please do explain.

        Would be nice if they at least gave Leclerc the #1 status for a race. Just to see how that goes for a change. Vettel is clearly not getting it done.

        Ah. Nice one. Would be amazing to see how that unfolds.

        1. @webtel
          1) But why are you comparing to Gasly then? Gasly is just hopeless, it doesn’t say much that Gasley is being beaten again by midfield team.
          2) First you say Ricciardo was suddenly slower after Bottas passes him and now you say Vottas was suddenly faster. The first is false and the second is correct. Clearly Bottas would be faster after he wasn’t being held up by a Renault anymore. Ricciardo was driving at the same pace before and after.

          1. @f1osaurus

            Gasly is just hopeless,

            Lol. I was still hoping for a good performance from him. Maybe thats why i still found it noteworthy. Please dont get me wrong, i agree it is unfair to compare RBH of Gasly to Daniel’s Renault.

            The first is false and the second is correct

            I stand corrected. I made the first comment based on the gaps. and the second based on the lap times which is the right way to do so. My bad. And yes, now it does look like a moot point that Valtteri was faster with fresher tyres and the track clear in front of him.

            Cheers mate. Thanks.

          2. And again about Gasly, my intention was to take note of Renault’s improvement irrespective of whether we compare it with gasly or not. Should have said it separately perhaps.

          3. @webtel I know right, Gasly’s Q3 wasn’t that bad I guess. But then his race was abysmal again. It’s so weird, because he must be a decent driver, but apparently he just can’t get the car to work properly for him.

            Ah well must have felt good for Ricciardo to finish in front of a Red Bull once again. Although he was still behind Verstappen :)

    2. Stroll didn’t have the upgraded PU. It …. sort of …. blew in practice and they had to revert to the older unit. They figured the deficit at a couple of tenths a lap.
      Yes, the strategy they used worked brilliantly. Better than their qualifying strategy.

  2. How in the world did Bottas manage a lap 1.3 seconds faster than anyone else’s fastest??! What was he on?!

    1. New tyres @neutronstar, and maybe all the power modes he needed, for that one lap.

      1. @bosyber Oh, I didn’t realize that he pitted right before the end for fresh tyres…in the end, it turned out to be a silly question!

        1. Nah, not having realised something isn’t silly, and: now you understand why, so it’s all good @neutronstar :)

    2. @neutronstar He was on a fresh set of softs (C5).

      What I found more astonishing is that Bottas was unable to beat Leclerc’s fastest lap time on hard tyres. So Ferrari really did have the fastest car this weekend.
