The Brackley-based outfit had originally planned to bring the second of the three allocated engines each of Formula 1's 10 teams is provided with across the 21-race season.

Canada is one of Hamilton's favourite circuits, the one where he took his first grand prix win in 2007 and where he has won and started from pole position six times.

The Briton has had an enduring love affair with Montreal.

That emotionally charged weekend was capped off by a sixth win in Canada.

The Mercedes driver is the most successful driver of the current generation around the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve with six wins to his name, just one shy of the record held by Michael Schumacher.

Ferrari is apparently preparing for this weekend's Canadian Grand Prix, which is in Montreal, by having no idea where or what Montreal is.

F1's 4X world champions Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton with Mr. Hamilton holding a narrow points lead over Ferrari's lead driver. He has won before in Montreal, in 2013 with Red Bull, and was unlucky that a tactical error undid Ferrari's strategy with him in 2016. "It's a circuit where overtaking is relatively straightforward, speeds are high and the cars are pushed to their limits".

However, a "quality issue" forced the team to abandon its debut until the French Grand Prix later this month, despite this, Bottas believes it won't hinder Mercedes' performance.

There is no denying that Hamilton, victor of five of the last eight in Montreal, has a level of comfort with the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve that he does not have with any other venue on the Formula One schedule.

But others have also found the track to their liking including two of Hamilton's biggest challengers.

"It will be a close-fought weekend - as it has been at every race so far this year".

Another went even further, putting the Ferrari slogan Forza Ferrari alongside a GIF of a Mercedes Benz vehicle ornament. "We're looking forward to the challenge".
