Vettel wins in Canada to overtake Hamilton in standings

Vettel wins in Canada to overtake Hamilton in standings

The Scuderia Ferrari driver secured the Italian team's first pole position around the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve since Michael Schumacher in 2001, with Vettel putting in an incredible lap time in an intense qualifying session. A fifth-place finish was a huge blow to the British driver in the title fight. With 20 laps remaining, Hamilton began to find a rhythm to move within a second of Ricciardo while Bottas, at the front, trimmed Vettel's lead to 3.8 seconds.

He said the win was special because it came 40 years after Canadian Gilles Villeneuve had won his first race for Ferrari. But the number that will matter to Vettel is the one-point advantage he leaves Canada with. Having shown formidable race pace in the opening rounds Ferrari had been on the back foot to Mercedes but they brought an engine upgrade to this race which has put them right back in contention.

"Our dad liked it and we got into it", said Colwin Whitaker a young Formula One fan. Today I think we had a couple of small lock ups, but as you continue to push the setup there are areas that can be affected. In qualifying and the race. The race was effectively over, as Vettel controlled events from then on. He converted his storming run for pole into victory with absolute precision. Even given the new engine Vettel had the pace of the field and managed his one-stop race untroubled to the flag.

"I don't think the Hypersoft is a good race tyre", the four-time world champion stated to Autosport.

"Their vehicle is fantastic and the engine, too".

Red Bull's Max Verstappen, who dominated much of practice, turned in a mature, error-free effort to take third place and quiet the storm of criticism swirling around him following a string of errors and crashes.

The generation gap is hard to ignore in the heavyweight matchup between Tai Tuivasa (-250) and Andrei Arlovski (+210). Whittaker blocked a left hand. - During his time as an active fighter, Michael Bisping was always outspoken.

He was hoping to benefit as they picked their way through the battle between three lapped cars and it led to a tense climax, but Hamilton was unable to pass.

Hamilton, fourth at the time, headed into the pit lane on lap 16 of this 70-lap race, but the early change of tyres allowed Ricciardo to usurp the Mercedes vehicle.

Which was of no concern to Vettel who led the train from lights to flag.

Vettel steered his Ferrari over the 4.36km track in 1 minute 10.764 seconds to deprive Briton Lewis Hamilton of a record seventh pole in Montreal. After 42 laps, sadly, Fernando Alonso's 300th Grand Prix weekend came to an end when, chasing 10th, he was called in to pit and retire.

There was joy for both Force India drivers, though, as they both made it to Q3 for the second race running, so Esteban Ocon and Sergio Perez will start either side of ninth-placed Carlos Sainz.
