Canadian Grand Prix - Strategy guide

Canadian Grand Prix - Strategy guide

Disappointed championship leader Lewis Hamilton said his laps "just did not come together" on Saturday (June 9) when he missed out on a fourth successive pole position at the Canadian Formula One Grand Prix.

The Ferrari man started on pole and lead throughout around Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, where Hamilton had triumphed in each of the past three seasons.

The problem did indeed seem to resolve itself, with Hamilton even managing to close up on fourth-placed Daniel Ricciardo in the closing stages of the race, although he didn't manage to make it past the Red Bull driver before the finish.

It's unlikely to be enough to make up a position on its own, but combine it with some aggressive driving through the opening corners and Max Verstappen is in a strong position to attack Valtteri Bottas and Sebastian Vettel further round the opening lap.

Stroll and Hartley's coming together saw the safety vehicle deployed but that was the extent of the drama.

And then taking a sweet victory and winning the Canadian GP for the first time since Schumacher did so in 2004. "Starting from the first row is good for this race and happy to go for it tomorrow". "When we got to qualifying, honestly we knew it was going to be very close as it was, but in my heart, I truly feel like we had the pace to lock out the front row, or at least I had the pace to be on the front row".

"I don't think the hypersoft is a good race tyre".

Vettel, who stuck his Ferrari auto on pole position with a stunning performance in qualifying by breaking the lap record with a 1:10.764, will be starting on the ultrasoft compound and said it never crossed their mind to think otherwise. "To have a race like we had today is unbelievable".




His latest practice crash in Monaco put Verstappen at the back of the grid, and left him facing calls from Red Bull team boss Christian Horner to rethink his approach.

"Our vehicle wasn't good enough, so I won't get too upset".

Lap one was eventful, as Canadian Lance Stroll lost control of his Williams, sandwiching Toro Rosso's Brendon Hartley between himself and the wall.

They should have new pieces for the next race June 24 in Le Castellet in France.

Renault's Nico Hulkenberg took seventh place ahead of Force India's Esteban Ocon.

Villeneuve rode his father's No. 12 Ferrari from 1978 in the parade lap Sunday before the race.

"It's unfortunate, I had a good start", said Stroll. The Spaniard was forced out with engine trouble after 42 laps.
