How Vettel and Ferrari turned 'disaster' into triumph - F1

Vettel's third victory this season lifted him to 121 points ahead of Hamilton on 120 after seven races, ending the defending four-time champion's hopes of a record-equalling seventh win at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve where he won from pole for the last three years. He earned his first Formula One points with a ninth-place finish at Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve a year ago.

Valtteri Bottas sees "no reason why" he will not be racing with Mercedes next season despite having yet to win in 2018.

Red Bull bringing Daniel Ricciardo in on Lap 18 meant an undercut on Hamilton when he returned to the track.

Kimi Raikkonen had been third after the first runs in Q3, but ran wide onto the grass exiting Turn 2 on his second set of hypersofts and was forced to abort the lap.

Vettel referred to the upcoming World Cup and said fans would watch that passionately regardless of the quality of every match.

Bottas said he "wouldn't have made it" if the race was one lap longer, although Verstappen said that wasn't a particularly relevant point as teams base their fuel calculations precisely on the actual race distance.

"It's unfortunate, I had a good start", said Stroll. It means a lot. Some of the marshals were already celebrating - I think they peaked a bit early.

It was also learnt that if they do not have any boys, no one would inherit the title when they pass on. The two got hitched on May 19th in a lovely ceremony at the Windsor Castle, London.

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.

The race began in near-perfect conditions with an air temperature of 20 degrees Celsius and the track at 45 as the lights went out. It's Vettel's fourth pole on the Ile Notre-Dame, and his first since 2013.

The Toro Rosso was launched into the air, wrecking both cars.

Both men were unhurt. Noting that he had a lap count on his steering wheel and on his pit board, he said: "After I saw the flag, I told the team "I think the race isn't over yet" and they said "No, keep pushing".

And during the race, Hamilton was affected by an engine-cooling problem that required an early pit-stop.

It was left to Bottas to chase Vettel, who made a clean getaway from the start, with Verstappen nearly passing the Finn before the order settled down. "No power, no gears", said the Spaniard. He didn't reply even to the apology from his race engineer: "Sorry, mate". He now drops a point behind Vettel in the championship standings.
