The first practice session for the Canadian Grand Prix got off to a rocky start due to a peculiar CCTV issue. As fans eagerly filled the grandstands at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, F1 teams and drivers were left waiting for the problem to be resolved. The cameras were not properly synced with the on-track action, posing a safety risk as they provide valuable information to the marshals during live sessions. The problem came to light when Pierre Gasly‘s Alpine experienced a slowdown coming out of Turn 7, prompting attention from race control. The slow recovery of Gasly‘s car indicated the uncertainty surrounding the positioning of other cars on the track. Consequently, the session did not immediately resume, and the FIA subsequently issued an update regarding the camera problem. To compensate for the lost time, the FIA has extended the second session on Friday by an additional 30 minutes. Teams are hoping that the forecasted rain, which has been looming all week, does not materialize as it would further impede their data-gathering efforts ahead of the weekend.
