Vettel takes 50th win and F1 championship lead in Canada

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.

"I think his charisma, the character he brought to Formula One and racing in general, is still alive today". You can't win them all, and I'll try to recover from it tomorrow.

Meanwhile, Mercedes' Non-Executive Chairman Niki Lauda seemed more concerned over Ferrari's impressive pace around the Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve, telling the press: "The Ferrari as a package is unbelievable". "For sure it's a good side effect".

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

New Zealand driver Brendon Hartley crashed out early driving for Toro Rosso after he was invloved in a collision with Williams driver Lance Stroll in the opening lap of the race.

Both took heavy damage in the contact and careened across Turn 6 and into the far barriers, where both their races ended.

A steward's investigation found neither driver at fault.

McIntyre has plenty of respect for Horn but wonders if he will be too tough for his own good. I saw him at Walmart today picking out towels. "I know what he was doing that for".

"It's also a race that rarely runs start to finish without a few incidents or safety cars", he pointed out. Once the safety vehicle was gone, it became a matter of lap after lap and who was going to gain or lose a place during a pit stop.

The Ferrari driver was back at his best in Montreal, doing enough to beat the Mercedes of Valtteri Bottas and start at the front of the grid in Sunday's race, setting a best time of 1m10.764s.

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.
