Any news of major updates from anyone?

I think Canada is not typically an update heavy race but considering Vettel's lead - Who knows?

Several of the teams are bringing update packages.

Williams and Ferrari spring to mind as being the "largest" packages.. Check the relevant car threads for details.

Thanks mate.

We need Ferrari to up their game bigtime to have any semblance of a title fight.

Looking at Monaco - Ferrari are slowly crawling their deficit from RBR and McLaren.

Hoping for an interesting race.

Everybody is bringing tweaks for a lower downforce configuration. Williams and Force India the only ones with bigger upgrades so far.

On the track since 8am, sun has come out but windy and only 16C. Will try to post a round-up in the evening if I have time.

I don't understand why the BBC and other people are making a big deal out of Red Bull never winning a race here. The only time they had a winning car at Canada was last year! It's the same with Vettel not winning Monaco. He only had a decent car in 2009 and 2010.

Soft and Supersoft.
The teams have been given a set of Mediums (white markings) in FP1 and FP2 for evaluation.

Looks like everyone is using the mediums ATM while the track is green.

That's a rather extreme interpretation of flow-viz paint.

Renault fastest at the speed trap ATM (Heidfeld 330kph).

No sure about the other front runners but Button was not using DRS on the back straight on hos fastest lap.

Should see pole time defeated from last year, DRS, KERS and super-softs should make it a formality on this circuit!
