Lewis Hamilton strolls to sixth Canadian Grand Prix victory as Sebastian Vettel salvages fourth
26 Giugno, 2017, 01:33
Hamilton's first Formula One victory also came in Canada during his debut season in 2007, but few will have been as easy as Sunday's race, which he led from start to finish.
Vettel showed strong pace in the closing laps and passed both Force Indias of Perez and Esteban Ocon in the closing laps to take fourth spot and finish just 0.7 seconds off third-placed Daniel Ricciardo, the second Red Bull driver, and the final podium spot at the end.
"The auto is back to where it should be", Hamilton said. "Every year the energy grows!"
"I had my first pole here, I had my first win here 10 years ago so to repeat it this weekend is incredibly special", Hamilton said afterwards. The British team are still searching for its first points of 2017.
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.
"For Baku I am comforted", he said, "because we could have had a better result here".
"I had a little bit of a feel out of Turn 6, and then the safety auto came but I wasn't sure because the first lap of the race, especially because it was very windy today, I thought it might have been a gust On the first lap I thought the tyres were not there".
Ferrari, with championship leader Sebastian Vettel chalking up his third win in six races, had just scored their first one-two finish since 2010.
The third row has the Red Bulls of Max Verstappen and 2014 Canadian GP victor Daniel Ricciardo.
Max Verstappen made a move off the start, jumping from fourth to second but clipping the right front wing of Sebastien Vettel's Ferrari on the way. Finn Kimi Raikkonen finished seventh in the second Ferrari ahead of German Nico Huelkenberg of Renault, with local hero and teenage rookie Lance Stroll of Canada taking ninth for William's and Frenchman Romain Grosjean 10th for Haas. "Lewis delivered a stellar performance this weekend with a pole lap that was nearly scary when you watch the onboard, and then a totally dominant 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.
The safety auto came out on the opening lap when, on the first turn, Romain Grosjean's Haas nudged Carlos Sainz's Toro Rosso, which plowed into the side of Massa's Williams.
The Spaniard lost control, spinning down the inside of the track and side-swiping Felipe Massa's Williams in Turn Three, forcing Fernando Alonso's McLaren on to the grass in avoidance. Hamilton pulled away cleanly at the start of the race and there was no catching up with him from there.
As such Mercedes are now back in charge of the Constructors' Championship, 222 points to Ferrari's 214.
Verstappen's spectacular start to the day came to an abrupt end on lap 11 when the hybrid battery power on the RB13 cut out. The battle ahead of him was fierce as well: both Force India drivers were on the radio trying to convince their team it was in their best interest to put them, rather than their teammate, in front to attempt to pass Ricciardo.
Un Valentino Rossi finalmente soddisfatto per la qualifica. "È stata una gara bellissima gara , meglio di così non poteva andare". Brutto colpo in chiave mondiale per Vinales che a 14 giri dalla fine cade alla curva 17 mentre Jorge Lorenzo è solo 15esimo.
Kimi Raikkonen: "It wasn't very easy and it was a struggle to make the tyres work 100%, so, it feels quite.not bad.but hard ". Grosjean also logged 20 laps, earning his best time in the No. 8 auto on his 18th tour at 1:45.491 that put him 17th overall.
It's emblematic of the one campaign skill that Republicans have consistently mastered - demonizing their political opponents. Seth Moulton , D-Mass., who also attended the meeting, said, "in every corner of our caucus, we're concerned".
And the public may not be aware of the downside of community rating: higher premiums and lower quality healthcare all around. Heller's seat is up for reelection next year, and a Democrat won Nevada's other Senate seat by a 2.4 percent margin in 2016.
President Donald Trump will help lead talks to get the reluctant Republicans on board. "I hope they're being genuine about that". I don't have the feedback from constituencies who will not have had enough time to view the Senate bill.
