The Circuit Gilles Villeneuve has confirmed that its paddock area will undergo a major change next year as it upgrades the facilities. The famous circuit hosts the Canadian Grand Prix, a fan favourite on the F1 calendar.

The Société du parc Jean Drapeau of Montreal released plans for the reconstruction when the promoters of the Canadian Grand Prix agreed terms back in 2015, when it signed a new contract to host the race in Montreal.

The new plans are designed to meet the standards set by the FIA, including increasing the hospitality capacity from 1800 to 5000. The project is estimated to cost $48 million and will be financed by the City of Montreal and Quebec's Ministère des Affaires municipales et de l'Occupation du territoire.
