Sebastian Vettel wins Canadian Grand Prix to retake F1 championship lead

Canadian Grand Prix - Strategy guide Sebastian Vettel wins Canadian Grand Prix for 50th career victory

"I am happy with this weekend so far".

Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel dominated the Canadian Grand Prix to re-take the championship lead as Lewis Hamilton could finish only fifth for Mercedes.

"It was a good day", Verstappen said.

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.

Verstappen arrived in Montreal under attack from all corners, after an incident-filled start to the season in which the 20-year-old reach the podium once in six races, while Ricciardo has recorded a pair of wins. "It was especially nice on my last lap to see all the Canadian flags waving to me".

He has raced in the F2 series the last two seasons and now sits 10th in F2 standings after eight races this year, including a third-place finish at Baku, Azerbaijan.

An opening-lap collision saw Brendon Hartley and home favourite Lance Stroll take their leave nearly immediately, while Fernando Alonso's 300th grand prix was not an occasion to celebrate as he, too, retired early.

The Mercedes of Valtteri Bottas will also start in the front row. At one point, it looked like we might have had a battle for the lead as Bottas cut the deficit to Vettel. "When we got to qualifying, honestly we knew it was going to be very close as it was, but in my heart, I truly feel like we had the pace to lock out the front row, or at least I had the pace to be on the front row".

His latest practice crash in Monaco put Verstappen at the back of the grid, and left him facing calls from Red Bull team boss Christian Horner to rethink his approach. We knew that in Q3 and in general throughout the whole year with the vehicle, we're just lacking power.

Red Bull boss Christian Horner has hinted that Red Bull Racing is ready to take a gamble on Honda power units for the 2019 Formula 1 season, with a decision set to be made before the Austrian Grand. Obviously, Max showed some pace, so I think there's a bit for us to learn.

"With the long straights it's hard to fight for pole position".

"We got pole today for a reason", said Vettel.

When asked if he felt Red Bull had the pace for pole after seeing teammate Daniel Ricciardo go quickest in Q2, he said: "I knew we had a good auto, but I wanted to wait and see how competitive we would be in Q3".
