However, the circuit was modified for 2002. Turn 1 was made 2 metres wider, making it faster, with the pitlane exit being moved so that it joined the circuit on the outside of turn 2. The hairpin was also moved forward slightly to make space for increased run-off area. The final corner wall (renamed Champions Wall after Michael Schumacher, Jacques Villeneuve and Damon Hill all hit the same piece of wall in the same race) was also moved back so that a tyre wall could be placed in front of it. This reduced the circuit length to 2.703 miles.
A 2.745 km/1.71 mile circuit on the banks of the St Lawrence River, about 2 miles west of the Circuit Gills Villeneuve, was used for the first time on the 29th-30th July 2017 for the final round of the 2016-2017 Formula E Championship.
