SEBASTIAN VETTEL says Formula 1 could be in for a wild ride this weekend in Canada due to the “high risk” nature of the circuit.The Montreal track is known for yielding action-packed grands prix with the Wall of Champions one its well-known obstacles.The Wall has caught out many drivers including Vettel, although he has only smacked it during practice sessions.

“There is definitely a high risk potential, especially in Turn 15, where you will soon get to know the notorious ‘Wall of Fame’ should you be driving a few centimetres too far to the right.

“The first danger zone is already at the start. In the very narrow right-left passage, it’s all about avoiding contact with the other cars, otherwise there will be a crash.

“It is not uncommon for the Safety Car to make an appearance at the Canadian Grand Prix.”
