As a temporary measure, we created a chicane with piles of tyres just before the start of the sequence of bends. Dan Thorn (@dan-thorn) 11th June 2010, 13:30. He escaped without serious injury, demonstrating the advances made in F1 car design in the intervening decade. We were surprised even then that they would allow spectators to be just inches from the track. The run from Tamburello to Tosa at Imola had plenty of run-off, and yet claimed two lives in as many days.
Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. The circuit originally included a sequence of fast bends which were taken flat-out.

Martin Brundle, who was the chairman of the Grand Prix Drivers’ Assoiation in 1994, inspected the circuit before that year’s race and explained the decision to change the corner in his book “Working the Wheel”: In May 1994, the month before the Grand Prix, I walked the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve with Normand Legault, later to become the president of the Grand Prix but, at the time, the general manager of the promoters. Hamilton moves past Schumacher with 92nd win.
The track on the Ile Notre-Dame was originally thought of as a rather sterile facility, compared to the undulating Mosport and Mont Tremblant tracks which held the race before it. Several international sports caras well as Formula One drivers participated in the event.
The original start line and pits was at the exit of the tighter of the two hairpins at the north end of the track at the north end of the track. The Circuit Gilles Villeneuve was first used for the Canadian Grand Prix in 1978. There simply wasn’t any room to build more run-off without knocking down spectator stands. Canada to my mind is how simplicity of a track leads to great racing. I seem to remember a more recent race, sometime in the last 10 years, with a chicane somewhere down the main straight after the hairpin. It was moved to its current location in time for the 1988 race – following the circuit’s one-year absence from the calendar due to a sponsorship dispute. To remedy the problem the pit lane exit was moved to its present location at the exit of the Senna hairpin. Find out more about RaceFans and contact us here. Pit lane exit and changes at the final hairpin. It was not elegant but we had to do something in the limited amount of time before the 1994 Grand Prix. I was amazed watching the classic GP’s on the Red Button this week to see how different the track used to be. Unbelievable! You need to buy a grandstand ticket, otherwise your view it’s very limited, and because it’s always a sell out, you struggle to find a nice place to watch. Interesting article and excellent to see a comparison of the original and current tracks. Barriers run close to the circuit and many experienced drivers have been caught out by them. Formula 1 cars in 1994 had considerably less protection around a driver’s head than they do today.
Mind you, you could probably write a couple of chapters on the history of the Wall of Champions alone! Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, Montreal – circuit information The Canadian Grand Prix had previously been held at Mosport Park and Mont Tremblant, but in 1978 a new venue on the Isle Notre Dame in Montreal held the race for the first time. Still, Montreal is an example of a track that has not changed to much, it has its character. I only bought that game a few years ago and I didn’t have a clue there was a chicane there first time I played it. See more from Formula 1 on ESPN. In 1999 the wall, which bears the name Bienvenue au Québec ("Welcome to Quebec") giving it the nickname "Mur du Québec" (Quebec Wall), ended the race of three Formula One World Champions, Damon Hill, Michael Schumacher and Jacques Villeneuve along with FIA GT champion Ricardo …
Prisoner Monkeys (@prisoner-monkeys) 11th June 2010, 7:53. I thought the L’Epingle section of corners were mega. I have the same problem – perhaps a bright yellow? Icthyes (@icthyes) 11th June 2010, 13:48. I think you are right about that. Mosport Park (which is still in its original layout configuration) was a spectacular and challenging circuit which had many ups and downs; the circuit was popular with drivers. The original start line and pits was at the exit of the tighter of the two hairpins at the north end of the track at the north end of the track.
Also Frentzen’s crash (car can be seen abandoned) happened at that corner. I agree that the performante is deadly on the straights, and in tight corners, ... Toronto Motorsports Park - 31 lap times , 3.0 km / 1.9 miles, Calabogie Motorsports Park - 27 lap times , 5.0 km / 3.1 miles, Canadian Tire Motorsport Park - 5 lap times , 4.0 km / 2.5 miles, Area 27 - 4 lap times , 4.8 km / 3.0 miles. The pit lane exit previously led cars onto the track in the high-speed run to turn one. The chicane can be well seen in this video of 1994 race. In its current form, Montreal’s F1 track is loved by fans and drivers alike. Then again the drivers seem to enjoy it just fine as it is.
