Just a day after taking his
fourth pole in Montreal - and 44th overall - Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes, driver
of car number 44, took his fourth victory at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve and
fourth victory of the year. With this win Lewis Hamilton has extended his
championship lead over Nico Rosberg to 17 points. Also, no other British driver
has led as many laps in F1 as Hamilton, who now has 2,143 to his name.
Hamilton’s teammate Nico
Rosberg secured his third second place of the year and ensured that Mercedes
got both cars home on the podium for the seventh successive race.
Finnish drivers Valtteri Bottas
of Williams Martini racing and Kimi Raikkonen of Scuderia Ferrari battled hard
with the former picking up his and Williams’ first podium of the year. Kimi
however recorded the fastest lap during the race in 1m 16.987s during his 42nd
Pastor Maldonado of Lotus F1
Team raced to his first points finish of the season in seventh. His teammate Romain
Grosjean was however unlucky as his chances for bigger points were scuppered after
a contact with Marussia’s Will Stevens, but the Frenchman’s eventual tenth place
finish ensured that Lotus earned their first double points score of the year.
Things are really not going
well for the Mclaren team with their Honda engine. For the second time in 2015
McLaren retired both of their cars from a race. It was also the third
successive event in which Fernando Alonso had failed to reach the chequered
flag. For Sahara Force India’s Nico Hulkenburg, it was an 8th
position with 4 points to be content with.
