Ferrari engine upgrade could be difference in Canada
Haas team principal Guenther Steiner gave a positive review of Ferrari's upgraded power unit, having had use of it at the Monaco Grand Prix. The American outfit hope that the new engine will give them an even greater boost this week in Canada.
Monaco's tight, twisting nature means engine power is not a crucial factor in success.
However, the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve is a different proposition, with long straights and heavy braking zones meaning power is crucial.
"The performance of the new engine was very good. There were no complaints," Steiner said.
"Monaco, as we know, is not a track where the power makes a big difference. It's always good to have it, but it doesn't make a big difference.
"In Canada, we'll really see how much better the engine is. We are hoping it's a good boost and doing what it should be doing."
