Lewis Hamilton Wins 2017 Canadian Grand Prix Three Times In A Row

Lewis Hamilton Wins 2017 Canadian Grand Prix  Three Times In A Row


Lewis Hamilton lead the race from start to finish ending the Victory drought at the Canadian GP ahead of Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas.

Hamilton's win and Vettel's recovery means the German's gap at the top of the championship is now down to 12 points. Mercedes has moved back in front of the constructors' championship by eight points, with both championships looking poised to rage on all season.

A race which seemed poised to be a tense Mercedes-Ferrari never materialised, with Hamilton leading cleanly into Turn 1. Behind Max Verstappen lept from fifth to second in the short run down to the first corner, swiping a chunk of Vettel's wing in the process and forcing the championship leader into an early pit stop. Verstappen's punchy start would end with an early reliability problem, propelling Mercedes into a comfortable one-two it never relinquished.

Hamilton's gap of 0.330s to Vettel was helped by Mercedes tweaking its strategy around tyre preparation during qualifying. Though Mercedes has extensively looked into what caused the Monte Carlo issues, Wolff thinks it is wrong to assume the team has solved its problems with one strong qualifying showing.
