We still have one race to go in the regular season, but the No. 22 pit crew team for Joey Logano in the Sprint Cup Series is already preparing for the upcoming Chase for the Sprint Cup.

But the pit crew is, shall we say, just a wee bit too exuberant, as pit crew boss Trent Cherry shows us in the latest edition of the Penske Files.

Plans for the upgraded pit and paddock complex at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal, Canada, have been unveiled ahead of their completion in time for the 2019 Formula 1 race.

The Canadian Grand Prix signed a new long-term F1 contract running to 2029 earlier this year, with a commitment to improving the outdated pit facilities at the circuit, built in 1988.

In a press conference earlier this week, further details and artist renderings were revealed for the CA$48 million project by the Société Parc Jean‑Drapeau.

A new glass structure will become the main pit complex, covering three levels to accommodate the teams, media and hospitality guests.

The construction work will commence at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in July 2018 – one month after next year’s Canadian Grand Prix – and be completed two months prior to the 2019 race.
