    Canadian GP

    Oh , how I wish I was going to the race . Maybe next year .

    The local boy put a black mark on the wall of champions this morning , and won't be getting that Merc upgrade he was hoping for , so not likely to make too much of a stir at his home race .

    Max was fastest , so the Renault plant is improving , but one of the manufacturer's cars stopped out on track , so reliability could be in question .
    Good to see the third team in first place , even if it is just first practice .

    I don't know who will win , and I like that . This could be a good one .

    This engine upgrade is going to be critical for quite a few players. Red Bull is supposed to be using this to judge whether to stick with Renault or switch to Honda. And a certain Alonso will also be very interested to see if Renault power can measure up to Merc and Ferrari in order to fuel his title ambitions.

    So , Torro Rosso is happy with the upgrade .
    Red Bull is still fast .
    And Merc is rumoured to have been carrying bags of sand .

    Now , can we have a moment of silence for the earth pig that was vapourized by Grosjean's Haas ?
    The grass was greener on the other side of the track and he almost made it .
    The onboard video footage could only have been worse if the colour of the camera splatter was redder . Little wonder it didn't make it to the world feed .

    McLaren 14th and 15th in Q1, behind Leclerc's Sauber.

    I wouldn't be terribly surprised if Alonso failed to stay with McLaren until the end of the season. I would imagine that he'll see the season out, but I sure as hell don't see him in F1 after this year.

    The ground hogs on Ile Notre Dame have always been a problem. A few years ago I had a whole family sneak under the guardrail to where I was standing - only to find no opening on my side so they crossed back. Fortunately it was early in the session, so few cars were on track.

    Anybody care to post qualifying results? It was shown on one of the ESPN sub channels that aren't part of my cable package.

    Here's hoping for an exciting race for a change. The top six seem pretty well matched.
    The first corner should be very interesting. I hope I'm not disappointed!
