Canadian GP : Hamilton wins, back in title fight

After a disastrous outing in Monaco where he finished P7, Lewis Hamilton dominated the entire race weekend in Montreal at the Canadian GP taking pole, race win, and the fastest lap.

“It has been an incredible weekend”, said Hamilton as he claimed that this weekend’s result is a “great blow” to Ferrari who had both their cars finish off the podium in Canada – first time that’s happened this season.

Hamilton lauded his Mercedes team for having fought back after the struggles in Monaco as he said : “Firstly for the team, to have come away from Monaco, really, everyone scratching their heads and wanting to work and pull together, and we did.

“Mercedes did such great work, analysing where we went wrong, all the points – this is where we went wrong and this is what we need to do to fix it – it was just amazing teamwork.

“Valtteri [Bottas] did a fantastic job this weekend, our first 1-2 for the team, solid points, so well done.”

Ferrari definitely held the advantage coming into Canada, finishing P1 and 2 in Monaco and Hamilton P7. But with Mercedes bagging P1 and 2 in Canada and both Ferraris off the podium, you could say the title battle has swung back into balance.

Hamilton v Vettel for the world championship. It’s the biggest title fight, and I think we’d all love to see it go down to the wire.

  1. The race was not as expected but still it was great to watch as Ocon was 2nd for few laps in the race, Vettel’s recovery drive and Alonso bitching about Honda.Though the sad part was Max’s Dnf and Hamilton’s easy win. He had it too easy this time.
