Lewis Hamilton: Canadian GP domination is 'great blow' to Ferrari

Lewis Hamilton: Canadian GP domination is 'great blow' to Ferrari”

After claiming an emphatic pole position on Saturday, Hamilton was peerless in the race, storming away to an unchallenged victory.

Hamilton, who in claiming the 56th career victory also reduced the gap to title rival Vettel in the championship to 12 points, says he was relieved Mercedes was able to overcome its hard Monaco weekend and praised his team for recovering so quickly.

Hamilton e he had qualified badly and finished seventh at the Monaco Grand Prix.

This was Lewis Hamilton's 6th win in Canada in last 10 races in the city and it is also the best record that he has recorded at all the circuits that he raced in.

The victory gives more hopes to Hamilton in winning the World Championship this year.

Vettel was not particularly slow out of the blocks, but as Bottas dived underneath the German, and Verstappen raced around the outside, the driver who had finished either first or second at every round of the season so far, was suddenly on the back foot.

Mexican Sergio Perez finished fifth after a bruising battle with his Force India team-mate Esteban Ocon of France, who was sixth.

Vettel had a mishap on turn two on his final fast lap or he may have had a chance to nip Hamilton for the pole.

"I don't think in the five years I've been with the team, they have pulled together so well and really work towards the same cause". He will head to Baku for the Azerbaijan Grand Prix in a fortnight's time with his championship charge now firmly back on track.

"Those are the results we need if we are going to win the championship", Bottas said. "We've understood the tyres, utilised the tyres a lot better this weekend, but I think there's still things we've understood but that you can't just fix in two weeks". Vettel, on the other hand, managed to finish fourth after a contact pushed the German to last initially in the race. "It's nice obviously. Max had his problems today, I'm sure he would have been up there as well".

Hamilton said: " "Ferrari have done a fantastic job all year and I just think this performance was Mercedes at its best.

He exited in 11th place ahead of two-time champion Spaniard Fernando Alonso in his McLaren Honda, Spaniard Carlos Sainz of Toro Rosso, Frenchman Romain Grosjean of Haas and in 15th place Briton Jolyon Palmer of Renault.

A technical glitch for Raikkonen promoted Vettel to sixth before he took fifth position after Ocon ran off the road at Turn One with four laps remaining.

"I don't own any of Senna's artifacts", the British driver said.

Canadian teenage rookie Lance Stroll answered some of his critics by scoring his first points in Formula One for Williams, crossing the line in ninth place to the cheers of a sell-out home crowd. "We came here with a much better understanding of the vehicle and we delivered a real blow to the Ferrari's". "Maybe in Monaco they were struggling a bit more in terms of pace but everywhere else, it would be unfair to say one was quicker than the other".
