The home of the Canadian Grand Prix at Montreal is receiving some upgrades.

In March it was announced that Formula One and the promoters of the Canadian Grand Prix had signed an agreement to extend Canada’s place on the Formula One calendar.

As part of that agreement the city of Montreal committed to providing the funds to upgrade the garage building, which has been in place since 1978.

But due to the changes to the technical regulations which have resulted in faster cars for 2017, the track will also see some tweaks ahead of the Grand Prix in June. have reported that ‘Most of the guardrails and some 5,000 tyres will be removed and replaced by TecPro barriers’, in addition ‘the FIA has also asked for the the traditional gravel traps to be replaced by portions of asphalt as seen at other F1 tracks.’.

One of the most popular parts of the track the now infamous ‘Wall of Champions’ will remain, but it will have its angle modified due to safety fears.
