Vettel's lap record ensured the Ferrari driver a start from pole position in Canada.

This is Vettel's second victory in Canada, having won his first for Red Bull in 2013, and marks his 50th career victory - only Michael Schumacher, Hamilton and Alain Prost have scored more.

Ferrari was the first to pull the trigger, stopping Raikkonen on Lap 33. It was the same for Bottas running behind Vettel.

Hamilton leads Vettel by 14 points in the standings after six races and will be determined not to allow him to cut substantially into that cushion.

'You know, I get really exhausted of all the comments of me that I should change my approach, ' said Verstappen, who recovered to finish in the points in Monaco.

Sebastian Vettel drives through the hairpin on his way to winning the Canadian Grand Prix. "Normally on some tracks we were dominant and others we struggled, but somehow this year the margins have become so tight that if you look at the fastest laps of the race it's five cars within a tenth".

Renault teammates Nico Hulkenberg and Carlos Sainz finished seventh and eighth ahead of Force India's Esteban Ocon in ninth, with Sauber's Charles Leclerc scoring the final point in 10th.
