Hamilton: Canadian GP "a great blow to Ferrari"

Hamilton: Canadian GP Hamilton: Canadian GP "a great blow to Ferrari"

Canadian Grand Prix victor Lewis Hamilton says Mercedes has dealt Formula One rival Ferrari "a great blow" after securing its first one-two of the season in Montreal.

Lewis Hamilton cruised to his third Canadian Grand Prix victory in a row and his sixth overall, while Canadian rookie Lance Stroll finished ninth to win his first Formula One points on Sunday.

"Nevertheless I feel the auto is very good, I was really happy this morning, I was happy this afternoon and it should be very good in the race so I'm looking forward to tomorrow".

Mercedes driver Hamilton dominated proceedings in the 70-lap Circuit Gilles Villeneuve event, leading home Valtteri Bottas in a comfortable 1-2 for the Silver Arrows.

"It was great for me and the entire team".

'I knew we could recover position because the auto is quick, but you have to fight your way through the field which is a lot of work, and it's not easy.

Key to Hamilton's victory was a storming pole lap that left Vettel in his wake, with the multi world champion's scrape with Max Verstappen at Turn One eventually sending him to the back of the field after fitting a new front wing.

"It is kind of insane to think I had my first pole position and grand prix win here 10 years ago", Hamilton added.

"Obviously, the beginning of the race didn't go our way, but I was still believing that we could fight back and get a podium so, at the end when I came back to that group, I was fairly confident but was one lap short".

Sebastian Vettel had to settle for second on the grid in Montreal after he was unable to match an awesome lap by Lewis Hamilton.

"There was a lot of time when I was up front reliving the memories of 2007, really being able to absorb the moment and enjoy the crowd", said the Englishman, who has now won six times in Canada. Driving like a man possessed, he salvaged fourth place with two laps remaining.

As the world champions returned to the top of the constructors' championship, eight points ahead of their Italian rivals, they served notice that they are still the team to beat. "Don't get me wrong, I think with the damage in the beginning, it was not ideal".

"I came here 25 points behind, so to come out of here 12 points behind I'm really happy with that". Vettel then overtook Sergio PĂ©rez two lap laters and had the race lasted just another two laps he would have very likely gotten past Ricciardo as well. "If we apply the same diligence that we did in the past two weeks after every single race, even after a win, we're sure that we can continue to do the best job that we can and to win", Hamilton said. "But we gave them a lap yesterday they couldn't answer to, and then today I think they just had a bit of a messier race". His team-mate Kimi Raikkonen was seventh. It was our first one-two finish of the year and in terms of ultimate points, it was the most powerful weekend we have had and maximised.
