The 2006 Canadian Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held on June 25, 2006 at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal. The race, contested over 70 laps, was the ninth round of the 2006 Formula One season.

RaceEdit

Polesitter Fernando Alonso took his sixth win of the season and increased his championship lead over Michael Schumacher, who finished second after passing Kimi Räikkönen with two laps remaining when the Finn ran wide. Räikkönen subsequently finished in third position, completing the podium for the McLaren team. Alonso had now taken six wins and three second places from the first nine races.

There was problems at the start of the race when the two Midland cars collided at the tight hairpin on Lap 1, before Juan Pablo Montoya and Nico Rosberg collided on Lap 2 (which necessitated bringing out the safety car). Rosberg retired, whilst Montoya continued until he collided with a wall later in the race. Schumacher was stuck behind Jarno Trulli for a large proportion of the race before he finally managing to overtake him; although, Alonso had gained a considerable lead over him by this point.

With just a handful of laps left the safety car was out for a second time when home-town hero Jacques Villeneuve crashed into the wall because of brake failure. Räikkönen, who was 2nd in the snake of cars behind the safety car, was unable to take advantage of closing up to Alonso due to the presence of back-markers in front of him. He eventually lost the position to Schumacher.
