Lewis Hamilton says 2018 Mercedes vehicle good enough for F1 title

Lewis Hamilton says 2018 Mercedes vehicle good enough for F1 title

Vettel heads the championship by one point, the third time the lead has changed hands between the two drivers in seven races.

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.

It was all about Ferrari at this year's Canadian Grand Prix and Sebastian Vettel sealed it with a victory. "I'm just grateful the engine made it".

"Having had one or two more sets to accommodate the drivers better for qualifying [in Canada] would have maybe helped us secure pole position". Vettel's lone pit stop on the 38th of 70 laps saw him emerge with a six-second lead that was never threatened. "I am going to keep doing that until I die".

Nobody had an answer for Vettel's pace as the top three finished in grid order, with Mercedes' Valtteri Bottas fighting off a brief challenge by Red Bull's Max Verstappen at the start, before settling into second place, where he finished.

"From the start I was down on power and my engine was saying that it was over temperature and I couldn't get them down", he continued. "But I love the idea, that's why I said yes even though I was pushing like fudge to get them in". "I dedicate it to the team and to the Canadian (Ferrari) fans".

He said: "The whole race I was thinking it was going to blow up".

Daniel Ricciardo, a victor two weeks ago in Monaco in another race panned for being tiresome, brought his Red Bull in third, just ahead of defending champion Lewis Hamilton's Mercedes.

Mercedes brought just five sets of the hypersoft per driver to Montreal, while rivals Red Bull and Ferrari had eight.

All this left Vettel in command after 40 laps, 5.7 seconds clear of Bottas with Verstappen third ahead of Ricciardo, Hamilton and Raikkonen.

"Now we are going home with the realisation that Ferrari had the better vehicle".

Frenchman Esteban Ocon was ninth for Force India with Monaco's Charles Leclerc taking the final point for Sauber.

A steward's investigation found neither driver at fault.

The only other retirement besides Stroll and Hartley was McLaren's Fernando Alonso who reported a loss of power due to an exhaust problem and was forced to garage his auto - a disappointing end to the Spaniard's 300th race.

"We need to review procedures and make sure we have a very simple procedure for every circuit", added Whiting. The young Dutchman also logged the fastest lap of the day; his neverending aggression might sometimes land him in trouble, but as a general rule his determination and ability to see a move where nobody else ever could are both entertaining.
