Mercedes, closest rivals Ferrari and Red Bull have each won two races so far.

Toto Wolff announced days ago that "all the Mercedes powered cars" in the field will use the new engine in Montreal.

The double World Champion can count himself among the Canadian Grand Prix winners, however, it has been four years since last he even scored a point in Montreal.

On one of Formula One's power circuits, that could prove a double whammy for championship leader Hamilton as he bids to match Michael Schumacher's mark of seven victories in Canada against rivals who will all be on upgraded power units.

The Scuderia could also face a reduced threat from Red Bull as their auto is likely to be less suited on the long straights, though will be strong in the many heavy braking zones. This was because, new parts were required to fix an engine problem that the Australian suffered in Monaco.

Asked about Ferrari's engine upgrade for Canada, which debuted in the back of the Haas and Sauber in Monaco, Vettel added: "It's always been the plan, so let's see".

Walls line much of the track situated on an island in the St. Lawrence Seaway and none are more famous than the "Wall of Champions" situated at the final chicane which has claimed victim to many top drivers over the years.

Stephens has dropped just one set this entire tournament and has been playing extremely clean tennis, making very few mistakes. Stephens avoided the embarrassment of a bagel in the final set but Halep held her serve to win her maiden Grand Slam title.

That display of emotion confirmed Hamilton's unchallenged supremacy in Montreal, but he faces a much more hard challenge from rivals this weekend as the leading teams take their scheduled revised second engines of the season.

The video, published on Tuesday, June 5, pages Scuderia Ferrari, says: "We are ready to Montreal".

Both Toro Rosso drivers, Pierre Gasly and Brendon Hartley, will have an upgraded Honda engine. It is yet unclear if Ferrari are also planning an upgrade or if they will wait to introduce it at a later race.

The new DRS zone for the Canadian Grand Prix will be between turn 7 and 8 and F1 executives hope that it will liven up the racing action.

That is your look ahead to the possible stories to follow this weekend in Canada. "For us, it's a tough one to take, but there are lots of lessons to be learned so we can come back stronger next time".

They said that the engine was not doing more miles than intended.

Mercedes are now ahead of Ferrari and Red Bull Racing in both the Drivers' and Constructors' championships, but have faced a stiff challenge in all the races thus far.
