As for Mercedes's recent issues, Hamilton said: "We are constantly learning about the tyres and we keep attacking".

But he will be stepping back from the limelight to the supporting cast while Sebastian Vettel bids for his fourth Ferrari win in seven races this year and the scuderia's first in Canada since 2004.

The result follows something of a trend after Hamilton also struggled with similar issues in Russian Federation and Bottas battled to keep his rear tyres from overheating during the Bahrain Grand Prix.

"The circuit is not going to suit our vehicle as much as the twisty, slower corners of Monaco, but I'm excited to get back and catch up with the guys and girls in the team".

"I don't think there is anything fundamentally wrong with the vehicle, it's still a strong auto". Hopefully we will be winning sooner rather than later.

"I think track by track we have definitively been performing better than in others, but Ferrari has always been good and their vehicle always seems very good to drive, with good balance, good for the tyres".

Bottas said Montreal required a more aggressive approach than some other tracks.

"So definitely there are issues in slow speed sections, when there are a lot of cambers on the track and Ferrari seems to be more stable on that kind of tracks".

"Every bad race we have we are losing points to Ferrari so for sure we need to pick up some pace, make the vehicle better, quicker, improve mechanically ... anything is going to help".

"We've definitely done some analysis, but we'll find out whether or not there are things we can improve on this weekend", he said. "They have a very strong package and we need to rise to the challenge to prove once again that we are the team to beat".

"If we could go to Monaco again we could do a better job".

This weekend is no different from any other location on the Formula 1 calendar, with Raikkonen believing Ferrari have to try to maximize everything.

Asked what new parts are coming to the vehicle for Canada, Bottas added: "We do have some more small update parts for the weight of the auto, which is still getting better".
