Hamilton wins F1 Canadian GP, picks up points on Vettel

"After the last race, we know now where to develop this vehicle moving forward, which is going to make such a difference in winning this championship".

"Looking back at the start, Bottas and I were trying to go from the inside when Max came around but these things can happen". When Ricciardo pulled his usual podium move, drinking champagne from a shoe, Stewart drew big laughs when he asked the Australian his other shoe and took a long drink from it.

The pink Force India cars of Sergio Perez and Esteban Ocon were fifth and sixth after battling among each other on the track - and over the radio - for position down the stretch. He said " I think I am in great form and it showed in my performance this weekend.

"I couldn't rest the whole race".

Ricciardo claimed his third-straight Formula One podium, finishing behind victor Lewis Hamilton and his Mercedes teammate Valterri Bottas. But it was Senna, Hamilton's favorite driver, who was the target.

The race got off to a chaotic start when, in his haste to reach the front, Verstappen ran over Vettel's front wing, which caused the championship leader to pit early and switch to a less optimal strategy.

The safety vehicle was deployed nearly immediately after Carlos Sainz collided with Romain Grosjean and wiped out Felipe Massa before ploughing into the wall at turn three.

The safety vehicle was deployed to deal with Sainz's stricken Toro Rosso, with Hamilton leading from Verstappen and Bottas.

But a few laps later, his day was done as he succumbed to what was most likely a power unit failure.

Vettel qualified second, but a slow start and contact with Max Verstappen at the first corner left him on the back foot, with damage not being spotted on his Ferrari SF70H until after an early safety auto period.

Ricciardo then had enough of a gap to hold off the faster Ferrari on the final lap.

It was Hamilton's third victory of the season and also his third in a row at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.

The pole, which left him three adrift of Schumacher's all-time record of 68, came 10 years on from the first of his Formula One career at the same track with McLaren in his rookie 2007 season. "I have to thank my team who made this possible".

"Also we know now, after the last race, where to develop this vehicle moving forward, which I think is really going to make a difference in winning this championship". "I am over the moon".

Hamilton blew Vettel away in qualifying with the fastest lap ever seen in Montreal before leading from start to finish at the seventh round of this see-saw championship battle.

Not only did Vettel suffer the broken wing on the opening lap but brake issues for Kimi Raikkonen late in the race meant he wasn't able to make inroads on the Force India pairing. He finished ahead of Renault's Nico Hulkenberg, 19-year-old Lance Stroll in a Williams, who on his home debut earned his first F1 points, and the Haas of Grosjean.
