Canadian Grand Prix track changes to boost overtaking?

Canadian Grand Prix track changes to boost overtaking?

The Circuit Gilles Villeneuve has been altered, with changes at the hairpin at Turn 10 perhaps boosting the chances of seeing overtaking in Sunday's race. A new pit building will also be used for the first time in Formula 1 at this weekend's Canadian Grand Prix.

The hairpin is often a scene of action as a heavy braking zone at the end of one of three DRS zones at the Montreal track.

According to the FIA's circuit notes: "The opening after Turn 10 on drivers right has been significantly widened and extended."

With more lines to take exiting the corner, it could well tempt more drivers to attempt a move at Turn 10, before engaging in a drag race all the way down the long straight before hitting the final chicane.

If the straight is a scene of racy actions, it could also bring the 'Wall of Champions' into play as drivers look to push at the end of the lap.

The famous barrier, which has seen the likes of Jenson Button, Sebastian Vettel and Michael Schumacher come a cropper in grands prix past has also been modified, with a concrete wall replacing an old guard rail.
