Hamilton wins as Mercedes reel off one-two finish

Hamilton's best lap in a blazing, course-record one minute 11.459 seconds on Saturday earned the 65th pole position of his 11-year career, tying him with Senna for second place all-time, three behind Ferrari legend Michael Schumacher.

Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One Team driver Lewis Hamilton was overjoyed to take such a comprehensive win in Canada on Sunday, after the previous round in Monaco left the triple world champion and the German squad puzzled as to why they were so below par on performance.

On top: Lewis Hamilton claims his sixth title in Montreal at the Canadian GP.

The Brit emerged victorious for the sixth time in his career in Montreal on Sunday after comfortably taking the chequered flag ahead of team-mate Valtteri Bottas, leading from start to finish.

There had been early drama when the safety vehicle was brought out in Montreal for the first time since 2014. "I think the chemistry Valtteri and I have is different". "It's been an incredible weekend for me and I feel very grateful now that the day is done".

Mercedes also moved into the lead in the constructors' standings, passing Ferrari. Hopefully we will be winning sooner rather than later.

Vettel's day hit a snag at the very first turn when he was clipped as the Red Bull of Max Verstappen flew down the outside and he was forced to pit after part of his front wing flew off.

Hamilton made the most of the re-start and resisted another Verstappen attack before Vettel, his front wing clearly damaged, pitted for repairs. The pit stop to fix the damage left the Ferrari at the back of the field just six laps in. Vettel then overtook Sergio Pérez two lap laters and had the race lasted just another two laps he would have very likely gotten past Ricciardo as well. "This is the most special thing I have, above and beyond any of my trophies, so a big thank you".

Hamilton only saw the damage in his mirrors. "And then I knew I had to catch up, which I did until the end of the lap, but just enough to do the same time as before, so not entirely clean".

"I came here 25 points behind, so to come out of here 12 points behind I'm really happy with that".

As for the Force India drivers they fought well but ultimately it was Perez who took 5th in front of Ocon.

Ocon felt aggrieved that Perez did not respond to the team suggesting he should let the Frenchman through to try to get past Ricciardo when they were running fourth and fifth.
