This golden nugget of a city, perched on Lake Ontario looks like a shiny island nebula popping from out of the water like something those fishy Atlanteans left behind. We like to think, however, that Toronto is more like a giant late night party boat ready for you to get on board! The city’s motto is ‘Diversity Our Strength’ - a testament to the amazing culture, night life, food, art, theatre (and the list goes on) waiting to be discovered. Just like Forest Gump’s box of chocolates, Toronto is a surprise waiting to happen, and there is something for everyone (yes, even the special soul who likes the orange creme…YUCK)!
When reflecting upon the last three races in Montmelo (Spain), Monte Carlo (Monaco) and Montreal (Canada), one thing stands out: PUMA’s partner team Ferrari was right up there on each occasion, and could conceivably have won (or at least taken podium places) in each event had not unfortunate circumstances conspired against the Italian team.
It really is great to be back in Canada. I know I say that about every race, and honestly feel that all Formula 1’s venues are special, but I feel we can make an even more special case for Montreal. The race was struck off the calendar in 2009, and that was when Montreal realised the city can’t do without Formula 1, and Formula 1 realised it can’t do without Canada.
