Vettel wins Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal

Vettel wins Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal

"The meaning for Scuderia Ferrari in this country is huge".

The crowds in Montreal saw the fastest ever laps on the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, and the Mercedes garage were not happy to be outstripped for speed.

Vettel was never threatened from pole, leading easily off the line and nailing his sole pit stop to ensure he cruised past the checkered flag first.

It was the 300th F1 race for two-time champion Fernando Alonso of McLaren, good for fourth all-time. I just do my own thing.

"That's why I am very happy to have qualified on pole".

Before the race on Sunday, the auto Villeneuve used in 1978 will be driven by his 47-year-old son Jacques, the 1997 world champion, to lead the ceremonial parade lap.

Hamilton started fourth but dropped back to finish fifth and is a point behind Vettel at the one-third point of the season.

Red Bull's Max Verstappen took third after a valiant but unsuccessful attempt to pass Bottas through the first two corners.

Lewis Hamilton will start the 2018 Canadian Grand Prix from the second row of the grid tomorrow.

And then taking a sweet victory and winning the Canadian GP for the first time since Schumacher did so in 2004. The Briton has won the last three on the track that seems to suit the Mercedes auto with its heavy braking after long straightaways and tight chicanes.

"There would have been gains and I think it would have been a close fight for the pole with the new engine parts, but we're going to get it later", said Bottas.

Red Bull boss Christian Horner has hinted that Red Bull Racing is ready to take a gamble on Honda power units for the 2019 Formula 1 season, with a decision set to be made before the Austrian Grand.

Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo, the 2014 Canadian GP victor, is coming off a victory two weeks ago in Monaco.

A defiant Max Verstappen says he is so exhausted of ongoing questions about his crash-filled campaign that he is going to "headbutt" someone if he is probed on it for much longer. "But it showed in Monaco that we have a great vehicle".

We'll give you a few pointers shortly in what to look out for in today's race but it could once more be an interesting one for strategy, with how long each driver can make the hypersoft and ultrasoft tyres last a critical aspect. Kimi Raikkonen, in the second Ferrari, was sixth.

"I don't know, I haven't seen much of the times of the others so it's hard to read yet. It's a great result for all the team, but I think I could have been even faster".

"We were briefly talking about what we wanted to do, trying to figure everything out".
