K-Mag returns to Montreal for the first time since 2019, as the Canadian Grand Prix makes its return this weekend.

For Round 9 of the 2022 FIA Formula 1 World Championship we head to Montreal for the Canadian Grand Prix. Formula 1 hasn’t visited Montreal since 2019 – talk us through the characteristics of the track and some previous memories of racing around Circuit Gilles Villeneuve?

“Montreal is a cool, cool place. It’s a nice track as well, it’s pretty unique, it’s kind of like a street circuit but then also a hybrid – I really like it. It’s very bumpy so it’s going to be harsh in these new cars as they’re very stiff. it’s going to be challenge I’m sure but a good one.”

 

Your best finish in Montreal with Haas came in 2017, when you finished in 12th place - do you think this will be the year that you break into the points with the team? 

“The goal is to score points, that’s for sure. I think we have the car to do that and I’m looking forward to going there.”

The Canadian Grand Prix is one race where your dad still has better results than you, achieving P6 in 1998 – a race where Mick’s dad won. What has Jan made of your return to Formula 1 and how does it now feel coming to races with your own family? 

“It’s always awesome to have family come to races – they’ve been such a big part of my career ever since I was a little boy and to have them at races is great. Of course, with my dad it’s a little extra because he’s been there himself and he’s good to talk to because he understands everything that I say. Everything that I’m talking about, he’s been there himself.”

 

This is the last flyaway event before October. How does the season change when you get into the swing of things in Europe and your own routine becomes more consistent?

“It’s going to be nice to have a bit of a European season now after Canada. No jetlag and short flights – I’m looking forward to that!”
