Sebastian Vettel wins Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal

Winning weekend But Vettel’s mood was dampened by critics

Vettel also took the lead in drivers standings by a single point over Mercedes ace Lewis Hamilton, who struggled early with engine overheating problems but rallied to finish fifth.

He said the win was special because it came 40 years after Canadian Gilles Villeneuve had won his first race for Ferrari.

Hamilton thus had to make do in Canada with an engine used in the six previous races.

"I hope they don't go to two engines next year because it's just going to get ridiculous", he said.

Bottas finished second for the fourth time in seven races. "There's a long way to go in the season so I am not bothered about the title now, but it's a good side effect for me".

After leading all three practice sessions, Red Bull driver Max Verstappen will start third, alongside Hamilton.

"I couldn't get the temperatures down, so I just thought it was going to fail", he said. In any sport if you think: "I might lose this", you have already lost. In the Constructors' Championship, Mercedes leads with 206 points, Ferrari is second with 189 points and Red Bull is third with 134 points. Establishing a team in IndyCar may suit the their American chief executive Zak Brown, but surely there are more pressing matters for Britain's most successful F1 team to deal with?

It was left to Bottas to chase Vettel, who made a clean getaway from the start, with Verstappen nearly passing the Finn before the order settled down. "Ferrari have been doing the better job, particularly this month and their whole package has just been a little bit ahead of us".

"Our auto wasn't good enough, so I won't get too upset".

The battle for "best of the rest" saw a straight fight between Esteban Ocon in the Force India and the two Renaults of Carlos Sainz and Nico Hulkenberg.

New Zealander Brendon Hartley will start in 12th for Toro Rosso. Both cars were badly damaged but the drivers were uninjured.

A steward's investigation found neither driver at fault. Some things that we tried and some things that I think we need to work on.

Ted reviews the 2018 Canadian GP at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. He earned his first Formula One points with a ninth-place finish at Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve previous year.

The absolute dead silence from Fernando Alonso as his McLaren team instructed him to retire his auto in his 300th career F1 race was both poignant and strangely hilarious. The young Dutchman also logged the fastest lap of the day; his neverending aggression might sometimes land him in trouble, but as a general rule his determination and ability to see a move where nobody else ever could are both entertaining.
