Formula One: Vettel replaces Hamilton atop standings with Canada triumph

Formula One: Vettel replaces Hamilton atop standings with Canada triumph

Today's race also marks his 50th win of his career and he also takes back the Formula One championship lead from Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton who finished the race in 5th place.

It was the Italian team's first Canadian GP win since Michael Schumacher in 2004, a race Vettel watched on television as a teenager at home in Germany. This early stop allowed Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo to get ahead of him and Hamilton was never able to get close enough to pass the Australian late on.

The defending champion was out-paced by a team-mate, Finn Valtteri Bottas, for only the second time in 10 visits to the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve and cut a glum figure after qualifying fourth.

Stroll and Hartley's coming together saw the safety auto deployed but that was the extent of the drama.

Before the race on Sunday, the auto Villeneuve used in 1978 will be driven by his 47-year-old son Jacques, the 1997 world champion, to lead the ceremonial parade lap.

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

"Like every grand prix there's not one person to dedicate it to", said Vettel.

"It was great to carry the momentum we've had this year into qualifying", said Vettel, who took pole position for the fourth time in seven races this season.

Has Linda Pizzuti Henry hinted Nabil Fekir to Liverpool is close?
Consequently, the Reds were hoping to negotiate a lower fee which prompted Lyon to pull the plug on any potential deal. Now we must wait and see if Liverpool and Klopp go back in for a player they have coveted so much.

"I think it was just a combination of things", he admitted.

"It will be interesting to see how it does in the start of the race, especially because Red Bull will start on the hypersoft".

It was a short day for the lone Canadian as Stroll's Williams slid across the track and rammed New Zealander Brendon Hartley of Toro Rosso into a wall.

The likely reason is, at the first race the pink-striped Pirelli was used two weeks ago in Monaco, Red Bull was the only team to really extract a good race pace from it without suffering from too much graining or degradation.

Nico Hulkenberg and Carlos Sainz of Renault, Esteban Ocon of Force India and Charles Leclerc of Sauber also finished in the points. "Gilles Villeneuve, the favourite driver of Enzo Ferrari".

Since I first began covering the race, we've been talking about the problems with overtaking, the way drivers tended to lock in to certain places and hold them for the duration.

'Of course the beginning of the year so far, it hasn't been going that well and not in the way that I liked it. Even given the new engine Vettel had the pace of the field and managed his one-stop race untroubled to the flag.
