Rusty number

[Montreal, Quebec, Canada]
This is definitely not the most representative picture of Montreal – which is nice city for sure. Anyway, such details make memories from your journeys more lively.
This picture was taken few blocks from Montreal’s old town.

The Wall of Champions

[Montreal, Quebec, Canada]
Turn #12 at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve: first of two narrow turns in the final chicane just before the Wall of Champions (in background).
Wall of Champions became famous after 1999 Canada F1 GP, when Damon Hill, Michael Schumacher and Jacques Villeneuve ended their races on that wall.
The curbs of the depicted chicane were modified in 2005, by making them higher and less visible, what has further increased difficulty in those turns. Looking at the picture, those curbs look definitely more challenging that you might get impression after watching F1 GP in TV.
