Vettel takes 50th win and F1 championship lead in Canada

Vettel takes 50th win and F1 championship lead in Canada

Hartley crashed out early at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve after an opening lap collision.

Vettel, from his fourth Canadian pole, made a clean start while behind him Bottas had to scrap to resist a robust attack from Verstappen. From the number of red flags with the prancing pony logo, the Italian squad remains the clear favourite in the grandstands.

It was the German's third win of the season and second in Canada, the first coming in 2013 with Red Bull. I don't know, I had to change a lot of things on the steering wheel.

"People who don't work in Formula One are sometimes a little confused by the little graphic they see on the television, where it says 69 out of 70".

And it came as the event celebrated a rousing win 40 years ago by another Ferrari driver - Gilles Villeneuve of Berthierville, Que, whose son Jacques drove his dad's 1978 Ferrari around the track in the pre-race parade lap.

"Our goal is to finish every single race so I'm hoping for the reliability and I can try and make the difference on the track with my driving".

"Fortunately we had radio, fortunately we had the lap counter in the auto, and the pit board was accurate", said Vettel.

Sebastian Vettel moved top of the drivers' standings after winning the Canadian Grand Prix on Sunday for his third victory of the season.

"I need to look into it to see exactly what it is, but there was a good chunk of time there, definitely in that corner alone there was pole position for sure if I'd figured out how to fix it". "It's great when you have a session like that".

Australian Daniel Ricciardo, who clocked the fastest lap at the end, managed to resist a late charge from Hamilton in the closing laps and retain fourth place ahead of the Englishman who extended his record points-scoring run to 32 races. Six cars can win races. 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. "It's unbelievable. I said yesterday how much this place means to Ferrari and to have a race like we had today is unbelievable", said Vettel. 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.

Verstappen's podium was his second of the year, and it eases some of the pressure he has felt with a series of mistakes that cost him and the Red Bull team in Azerbaijan and Monaco. "No power, no gears", said the Spaniard. "But we have to say that Ferrari's vehicle, as a package, is unbelievable".

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

When asked if he was anxious errors could start creeping in as a result of an intense fight, he said: "I think you need to get the right balance between pushing development very hard, adding performance to the vehicle and at the same time keeping reliability".

Finn Kimi Raikkonen finished sixth in the second Ferrari. This is what we need to get to the bottom of. I couldn't get the temperatures down, so I just thought it was going to fail.
