Robert Kubica Canada GP 2007 CrashF1 fans around the world will remember last year’s terrible scenes at the Canadian Grand Prix, when Robert Kubica walked away unharmed after crashing against a wall at 280 km/h on his 27th lap. However, the events of last year are no burden for the Pole driver; on the contrary: Kubica is looking forward to the seventh race of the season at the Gilles Villeneuve circuit.

“I am looking forward to the next race in Montreal”, said Kubica. “It is a special one, as it is a very nice city and the fans there are really enthusiastic. The entire city lives Formula 1 over the Grand Prix weekend. Although I had a very big accident there in 2007, Montreal is one of my favourite tracks,” he added.

“Montreal has a completely different track characteristic to the last race in Monaco,” continued the Pole. “Montreal is a relatively low-downforce track. I like the track because there is a lot of heavy braking and stop-and-go. It is very important in Montreal to have good traction to exit the slow corners perfectly. We have to take care, especially at the beginning of the weekend: the track has a very low grip then, as it is not a permanent racetrack.”
