Asked by RACER how much the fight with Ferrari is pushing him to produce his best as a driver, Hamilton replied: "I would say my opinion is that it is a little bit more so for us because we are having a vehicle that is not working everywhere".
The German and Hamilton now have three wins each, with Bottas taking the other.
The mood was not almost as upbeat when Mercedes arrived in Montreal on the back of a miserable Monaco where triple world champion Hamilton qualified 13th and finished seventh, with Bottas fourth. "But the auto is really good".
"I couldn't rest the whole race".
Hamilton, who in claiming the 56th career victory also reduced the gap to title rival Vettel in the championship to 12 points, says he was relieved Mercedes was able to overcome its hard Monaco weekend and praised his team for recovering so quickly. "It's all about tomorrow".
Bottas remains third while Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen is fourth - the Finn could only finish seventh on Sunday. After the 2017 Mercedes remained stubbornly uncooperative two weeks ago at Monaco, around-the-clock work at their Brackley headquarters facilitated the team's first one-two of the season in Montreal to puncture Ferrari's resurgent momentum.
"I tried to be aggressive and get ahead of the Ferraris", said Bottas. It should put us in strong position from here moving forward. Both teams also seem to be leaving Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen behind with only 67 and 45 points, respectively. "We can't do that at the moment".
Two-time world champion Fernando Alonso continued to struggle with his McLaren Honda. "The first priority tomorrow will be to finish the race. We've scored a big load of solid points and it's well deserved".
Native Montrealer Lance Stroll was ninth - the first-ever points for the 18-year-old rookie; Hamilton gave him a thumbs-up as he passed on the track. He was locked out of a chance to improve when a crash by Pascal Wehrlein ended the first qualifying session early.
