2023 Canadian GP Preview - Why Formula One needs to take notes from Le Mans

We look ahead to the Canadian Grand Prix this week and discuss last weekend's 24 Hours of Le Mans. We dive into the new and varied field of hypercar teams and manufacturers and what F1 can learn from WEC in attracting new entries as well as improving the experience for us, the fans. There are also a few personnel changes to recap and the potential impact of forest fires on the Canadian Grand Prix.
