Hamilton cruises to sixth F1 win at Canadian GP

F1 Canadian GP: Home points still 'very possible' for Stroll Motor racing-Growing up fast, Stroll scores first points

Winning pole position at one of his favourite races was a thrill for Lewis Hamilton, but being presented afterward with a helmet once worn by his boyhood idol Ayrton Senna had the defending Canadian Grand Prix champion almost in tears.

Hamilton's win cut championship leader and four-time champion Sebastian Vettel's advantage to 12 points after the Ferrari man lost out at the start and, after an early pit stop for repairs, fought back to finish fourth.

"I had my first win here and my first pole", Hamilton said. "To repeat it this weekend is incredible".

A first-lap mishap that damaged the two Ferraris made it an easy day for the Mercedes AMG team, with Hamilton taking the chequered flag and teammate Valterri Bottas safely in second place.

"I don't think we've completely got rid of all the issues we have", he said.

Sergio Pérez appeared to ignore team orders to let teammate Esteban Ocon pass him late in the Canadian Grand Prix Sunday, arguably costing Force India a podium finish.Having raced behind the Red.

"I think for us, we really solidified our strength, we've got a better understanding of the auto and hope we can put it in the same spot in the following races", he told Sky Sports television.

"It's a long race when you're out there on your own", he said.

"Obviously the beginning of the race didn't go our way, but I was fairly confident I could get a podium - one lap short", Vettel told reporters. Both the Ferraris of Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen had hard opening laps and they could finish only in fourth and seventh, with Vettel's lead in the world championship cut from 25 points to 12.

The next round in Azerbaijan takes place on 25 June and Hamilton can head into it with more confidence but insists he and the team will continue the efforts that have engendered their turnaround. "When I went to the Mercedes factory on the Thursday after Monaco, the engineers were still conducting that analysis, so all I could do was ask further questions and give more feedback, then just focus on this week and getting ready for the task that lay ahead in Canada". "I knew what I had to do today".

Not feeling the damage at slow speed during the caution, Vettel waited to replace the wing until Lap 5 and fell to the back of the pack.

After Verstappen made his lightning start, he appeared to be the strongest placed Red Bull to mount a podium challenge and that continued until lap 11, when his Renault power unit failed.

Vettel was fourth, an impressive finish after his right front wing was clipped by Max Verstappen at the start.

Despite the win, Hamilton is still behind Vettel in the Driver Standings. I actually feel like jumping in the lake!

The 18-year-old Stroll, on the grid for the first time before his home fans, finished for only the third time in seven races this season and achieved his goal of earning his first points at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, where he watched the race with family as a child.

A bigger crash took Felipe Massa and Carlos Sainz out of the race just seconds later.
