Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel wins Canadian Grand Prix

Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel wins Canadian Grand Prix

Bottas was first to blink on lap 37, Vettel following one lap later, both going to super-softs.

But of more immediate concern to Vettel was the fact that the premature flag could have left some fans thinking that the track was open.

"The car's been handsome today", he said.

"It kept dropping and coming back and dropping again". Some of the marshals were already celebrating. Also a massive crowd - I think the hairpin is so cool, there are so many people waving every lap.

"It was a great performance from the team and the flawless day really".

Valtteri Bottas of Mercedes was second followed by the Red Bulls' Max Verstappen and Daniel Riciardo, the victor two weeks ago in Monaco.

The Englishman, who arrived in North America with a 14-point lead over Vettel, will now head to the next round in France trailing his Ferrari rival by one point. Max Verstappen was third and the other Red Bull vehicle, driven by Daniel Ricciardo, was fourth.

Canadian model Winnie Harlow blamed race officials for telling her the wrong time to wave the flag.

Lewis Hamilton was left to rue a Mercedes engine problem after he lost the lead of the Formula One championship to Sebastian Vettel in Canada on Sunday.

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.

Raikkonen will be on the ultrasoft tyres while Ricciardo will start the race on Pirelli's latest hypersoft compound. It was the same for Bottas running behind Vettel.

"Ferrari did a better job today and that's just the way it is". "So I tried it all but I wasn't sure until the end if it was enough".

Behind the leaders, there was chaos when Williams's Canadian Lance Stroll squeezed Toro Rosso's Brendon Hartley into the wall.

But deputy team principal Bob Fernley acknowledged that there had been talks with, but said nothing had changed.

A steward's investigation found neither driver at fault. "But I love the idea, that's why I said yes even though I was pushing like fudge to get them in". "I was 13th after the first two turns". He forced me to the inside.

"The only feeling I have is that we have to wake up".

Stroll, 19, was in is second Canadian GP. 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.

Fernando Alonso's F1 future remains unclear after he retired from his 300th Grand Prix before making his Le Mans debut this week.

It meant Hamilton, along with Valtteri Bottas and the Force India/Williams drivers, remained with their original spec engines.
