F1 Debrief: All you need to know from the Canadian GP

Lewis Hamilton GETTYLewis Hamilton is looking for a seventh win in Canada

"Fortunately we had radio, fortunately we had the lap counter in the vehicle, and the pit board was accurate", said Vettel. Some of the marshals were already celebrating.

Speaking to Austrian channel ORF, Wolff said that there was nothing positive to take away from the result - as he brushed off suggestions Valtteri Bottas's second placed finish was damage limitation.

But it was a decision Red Bull made earlier in the session, in Q2, to complete their best lap on the Hypersoft tyre and not the more durable Ultrasoft, which Ferrari and Mercedes had on their cars, which confused Vettel as it means both Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo will use that compound in the first stint. This is what some circuits will do, they'll say "leader's on his third last lap, second last lap, this is the last lap", then they'll give the guy waving the flag points at where the leader is.

Defending four-time champion Briton Hamilton finished fifth, extending his run of points-scoring finishes to a record 32 races, but he slipped a point behind German Vettel in the title race.

"I was just anxious, I told them on the last lap, so people don't jump on the track, waving flags and celebrating, because we are still going at full pace".

Mercedes star Lewis Hamilton believes Ferrari will "falter" in the Formula One championship battle.

Hamilton's Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas tailed Vettel the entire way after fighting off Red Bull Racing's Max Verstappen off the start, but Bottas never got almost close enough to mount a challenge, though he did come home a solid second.

"I thought it was going to fail". Six cars can win races.

Cork-based chefs pay tribute to the late Anthony Bourdain
According to Saltz, more often than not, people will open up about their feelings when asked. CNN confirmed Bourdain's passing in a statement, listing the cause of death as suicide .

When asked if he was anxious errors could start creeping in as a result of an intense fight, he said: "I think you need to get the right balance between pushing development very hard, adding performance to the auto and at the same time keeping reliability".

Very little in the way of overtaking in Montreal, with the safety auto limiting opportunities at the start and the truncated number of laps limiting them at the end.

Kimi Raikkonen was sixth ahead of the two Renault cars with Nico Hulkenberg leading home Carlos Sainz Jr.

But in an impassioned response to complaints about the lack of overtaking during the grand prix, Vettel said the occasional uneventful race in F1 was as inevitable as an uneventful contest in every other sporting sphere.

Of note: the race was interrupted by a Safety Car for a scary Lap 1 crash involving Williams' Lance Stroll and Toro Rosso's Brendon Hartley. "If that comes together I think we can do quite a big jump and then hopefully the engine and putting it all together will help us to be there tomorrow".

Stroll, 19, was in is second Canadian GP.

After 42 laps, sadly, Fernando Alonso's 300th Grand Prix weekend came to an end when, chasing 10th, he was called in to pit and retire. The Spaniard was forced out with engine trouble after 42 laps.
