F1 2018: Sebastian Vettel regains points lead in Canadian GP

Lewis Hamilton

Sebastian Vettel capped an emotional weekend for Ferrari with a clinical pole-to-flag win at the Canadian Grand Prix on Sunday to retake the lead in the Formula One world championship from Mercedes's Lewis Hamilton by a single point.

"We fall behind in every aspect".

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. "It was not about performing damage limitation". "If that comes together I think we can do quite a big jump and then hopefully the engine and putting it all together will help us to be there tomorrow".

Hamilton stayed fourth ahead of Ricciardo who made quick work of passing Raikkonen before, after only half a lap, a heavy collision between Brendon Hartley's Toro Rosso and local hero Lance Stroll's Williams. I think we need a little bit of time to understand the full picture but as I said I'm not yet happy with the vehicle.

The only real drama he encountered was when model Winnie Harlow waved the chequered flag too early.

Race victor Sebastian Vettel was aware that it was a mistake and continued on, but the race result was declared at the end of lap 68 as per the regulations. "He just ran me out of road", said the luckless Hartley.

"Our vehicle wasn't good enough, so I won't get too upset".

Afterwards, FIA race director Charlie Whiting offered a fairly sheepish explanation. "They had a small margin they could use to save fuel and control the race".

Asked after the race if he felt any consolation in seeing Hamilton's team-mate Finn Valtteri Bottas come home second, Wolff said: "No, not at all..."

Having already voiced his displeasure with a lack of racing action in Monaco, Hamilton had more criticism for the state of Formula 1 following a lackluster fifth place finish in Montreal. It doesn't matter where I start on the grid, I don't look at any driver and say "oh I might lose to that person".

"I was quite happy with my first run in Q3 but I knew there was something more in the vehicle for the first part of the lap", Vettel continued.

"It is definitely more fun when you have more engines".

"You want actual true performance, so the sport is going in the wrong direction, in my opinion".
