Canadian Grand Prix - Strategy guide

Canadian Grand Prix - Strategy guide

"But to sit in that vehicle in front of this crowd - some of it from when I was racing, some from when my dad was racing - it was very special". It feels like there are no better questions out there than keep asking me about what happened in the previous weekend.

WATCH BELOW: Montreal-born racer Lance Stroll gives us a look ahead at what he's expecting from this weekend's big F1 race. The Scuderia are the most successful team at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve with 11 wins but they had not had a victory here since Schumacher won in 2004.

Mercedes' Valtteri Bottas finished in second, making it his fourth podium here in a row while Red Bull's Max Verstappen makes his first podium in Canada in P3.

"Perfect is probably a good way to describe it", said an ecstatic Vettel after the race.

Hamilton started fourth but dropped back to finish fifth and is a point behind Vettel at the one-third point of the season. The Briton has won the last three on the track that seems to suit the Mercedes vehicle with its heavy braking after long straightaways and tight chicanes.

Mercedes were never in the victory equation, having not got engine updates ready in time for the race while Ferrari and Red Bull both had new parts.

"You can't come to Montreal and think it's going to be a walk in the park because that's the kind of wake-up call you get". He and Ferrari executed their race to perfection, took the lead in the title race and have left Hamilton and Mercedes with much to consider before racing resumes in France in a fortnight.

"We knew that, in general, we're lacking power, so we just try to compensate with that", said Verstappen.

When it comes to the twisty stuff, 11 of the 14 corners are taken below 100 miles per hour, which makes it particularly hard on the brakes and tires when the cars are coming from the high-speed straights.

Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen was sixth, and said it had been a boring race, with Renault's Nico Hulkenberg and Carlos Sainz seventh and eighth.

Vettel sees another chance to honour the memory of Gilles Villeneuve, who died in a crash at the 1982 Belgian Grand Prix, with a Ferrari win. "To have a race like we had today is unbelievable". "I corrected, but I didn't have enough room, and we collided along the wall". Early on he told his team he was having "dropouts of power" from the vehicle, which was from the power unit running too hot in the first stint.
