Drivers take their positions today on Montreal’s Circuit Gilles Villeneuve for the Canadian Grand Prix, the seventh of 19 races in this year’s championship. Chief executive Bernie Ecclestone, 84, maintains his position at the head of the sport after settling a German bribery case with a $100m (£64m) payment in August last year. Formula One’s sales of £827.7m exclude overseas operations and represent the company’s largest UK trading entity company.
