Lewis Hamilton superseded Nigel Mansell as the Briton to have led the most race laps in Formula 1, as he scored a decisive win over Mercedes team mate Nico Rosberg in Canada. Valtteri Bottas took Williams’ first podium of the year in third, albeit almost 40s down the road.
Kimi Raikkonen was fourth past the chequered flag at the end of the race finishing five seconds ahead of Sebastian Vettel. The Finn was third for much of the race, until he spun at Turn 10 on lap 28, handing the position to Valtteri Bottas.
Sebastian Vettel put in a gritty drive, starting from 18th on the grid. The German worked his way up to fifth at the end and at times he was the quickest man out on track. Vettel and Raikkonen now lie third and fourth in the Drivers’ Championship classification. F1 now heads back to Europe for the Austrian Grand Prix in two weeks time.
