Lewis Hamilton won his sixth
Canadian Grand Prix race on June 12, 2017, ahead of team mate Valtteri Bottas
of Mercedes who came in second in Montreal.
The third place went to Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo. This time there was
no podium for Ferrari as Sebastian Vettel came in fourth after a tough battle
early on, thereby cutting his drivers’ championship lead from 25 to 12 points.
On a very windy day, Vettel’s
car got a front wing damage when Max Verstappen made a blinding start from
fifth on the grid to go round the outside of him into second place by Turn 1,
as Bottas went for the inside to grab third.
Immediately thereafter, Romain
Grosjean and Carlos Sainz tangled, the Haas spinning the Toro Rosso down the
grass on the inside of the track until it collected the innocent Felipe Massa’s
Williams in the chicane that followed. That led to the exit of two cars on the
spot while Grosjean limped back to the pits for a new nose.
When the race started, it was
Hamilton all the way. Force India’s Sergio Perez and Esteban Ocon came in fifth
and sixth respectively.
