I watched the CCWS race at the Gilles Villeneuve circuit last night; pretty interesting race overall. Firstly, the fact that it was on the F1 track gave me a great opportunity to answer the Champ Car vs Formula 1 questions people were asking a little while ago. 2004 Pole Position Times at Gilles Villeneuve circuit, Montreal, Canada: Formula 1: 1:12's (Ralf Schumacher) CCWS: 1:19's (Sebastein Bourdais) So over a 7 second difference! Also the fastest race lap during the Champ Car race was in the 1:21's, compared with 1:13's for Formula 1 - over a 9 second difference. Another thing, bad luck for Bourdais. He was really pissed immediately after the incident! To whoever saw this race, who did you think was at fault? And lastly, that Bridgestone Passion For Excellence segment was interesting when they compared the F1 and Champ car rear tyres; I had no idea the champ car rears were so big!
