The Canadian GP has been a memorable race for Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport's driving talent, both past and present.
For Lewis, the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve was the scene of his first Grand Prix victory, back in 2007, something he described as "the best weekend of my life at that time."
Not content with that, Lewis also took victory in 2010, '12, '15, '16 and '17, equalling Michael Schumacher's six wins and also equalling the great German's six pole positions.
Valtteri also first appeared large on the F1 radar when he qualified a superb third for Williams - behind multiple Champion Sebastian Vettel and Lewis - on a wet track in 2013, since when it has always been one of his favourite circuits. In line with that, this year he became just the second team mate ever to out-qualify Lewis in Montreal.
Non-executive chairman Niki Lauda also had some seismic career moments in Canada. Four years before Circuit Gilles Villeneuve first hosted the race, Niki was in his first season with Ferrari and his first year in a Championship-contending car.
At Mosport Park in the season's penultimate race, he qualified on the front row, took the lead at the start and led for 67 of the race's 80 laps before skating off on an un-flagged oil spillage, ending his Championship hopes. He would win two world titles in the following three seasons.
Heading to the Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve in '79, Niki had finished just two of the previous 13 races. After a cold and soggy opening day of practice, Niki declared that he was "fed up with driving around in circles," announced his immediate retirement, packed up his bag and headed off to continue his DC10 pilot training.
He was back with McLaren at the beginning of '82 and won a third world title two years later - the year before Lewis was born...
