Formula One: Vettel replaces Hamilton atop standings with Canada triumph

Formula One: Vettel replaces Hamilton atop standings with Canada triumph

"I was able to find a lot of performance from FP3 to qualifying and it felt like I got everything out of the vehicle".

Lance Stroll of Montreal, the first Canadian to race in F1 since Jacques Villeneuve left in 2006, qualified 17th as his Williams team's struggles continued.

And then taking a sweet victory and winning the Canadian GP for the first time since Schumacher did so in 2004.

Vettel converted pole position into a lead at the first corner and was never headed as he kept Mercedes' Valtteri Bottas at arm's length throughout the race.

The team took some time to find its pace over the weekend with Vettel not fully at ease with the vehicle until qualifying when he found the set-up he wanted to deliver an impressive pole, from which he dictated the race and converted into an equally impressive win.

Championship leader and defending champion Lewis Hamilton was down in fourth for Mercedes - his hopes of a fourth consecutive pole in Canada ended - ahead of Finn Kimi Raikkonen in the second Ferrari. Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel is second with 96 points and Red Bull Racing's Daniel Ricciardo is third with 72 points. The Briton has won the last three on the track that seems to suit the Mercedes auto with its heavy braking after long straightaways and tight chicanes.

Isolated Kim taking big gamble leaving home for Trump summit

Hamilton, who had a hard weekend, was unable to find the performance he wanted. Grosjean will likely start the race at the back of the grid.

The other ace up Red Bull's sleeve will be at the start when the hyper-soft compound should offer better traction off the line.

"We've got to do more", he added, when asked about how Mercedes should react to Ferrari's gathering momentum.

"We knew that, in general, we're lacking power, so we just try to compensate with that", said Verstappen. That meant Hamilton's engine was into its seventh Grand Prix weekend - and it was seemingly beginning to feel the strain... "We didn't apply the pressure this weekend, but I'm really going to make sure I come back strong in the next race". "To have a race like we had today is unbelievable".

After 20-some strolls down to the Senna corner to watch the cars come through on that first lap, I can tell you there is nearly nothing like seeing them barrel down the straightaway, brake down nearly to a standstill through the chicane and then seemingly leap up and out of sight around the bend.
