Circuit Gilles Villeneuve on the Ile de Notre Dame photo by Abdallahh

Though many modern F1 circuits such as Shanghai are a long way out of the cities in which they are supposedly based, Montreal’s Circuit Gilles Villeneuve is conveniently located. The Ile Notre Dame where the circuit can be found is just across the water from Downtown Montréal in the middle of the St Lawrence river.


The race sees high tyre degradation and usually a lot of clashes and retirements, the city and the country are great places to visit and the Canadians as a population seem to get F1 far more than Americans tend to.
