Canadian Grand Prix driver ratings: Vettel dominant, Hamilton struggles, Verstappen shines

Sebastian Vettel claimed the 50th win of his career and reclaimed the lead of this year's world championship on Sunday when he ended Lewis Hamilton's run of supremacy at the Canadian Grand Prix.

Hartley crashed out early at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve after an opening lap collision.

40 years after Gilles Villeneuve won his home race for Ferrari, his son Jacques drove his auto around the Montreal circuit before the race.

Hamilton started fourth but dropped back to finish fifth and is a point behind Vettel a third of the way through the season.

And it came as the event celebrated a rousing win 40 years ago by another Ferrari driver - Gilles Villeneuve of Berthierville, Que, whose son Jacques drove his dad's 1978 Ferrari around the track in the pre-race parade lap. "I dedicate it to the team and to the Canadian (Ferrari) fans".

When asked if he was anxious errors could start creeping in as a result of an intense fight, he said: "I think you need to get the right balance between pushing development very hard, adding performance to the auto and at the same time keeping reliability. I'm sure it's going to be on the way soon". That is not the part that worries me. "Hopefully a bit more in the future".

Mercedes, whose race pace looked the strongest of all on Friday, could not compete.

"They thought he was making a statement when in fact he was asking a question and he just showed it a lap early, it's as simple as that".

When asked if Mercedes are confident they can get on top of their problems, Mercedes Team Principal Toto Wolff said: "I'm the opposite of confident". Some of the marshals were already celebrating.

"It was a great performance from the team and the flawless day really". Vettel's lone pit stop on the 38th of 70 laps saw him emerge with a six-second lead that was never threatened.

Red Bull's Max Verstappen took third after a valiant but unsuccessful attempt to pass Bottas through the first two corners.

He was hoping to benefit as they picked their way through the battle between three lapped cars and it led to a tense climax, but Hamilton was unable to pass.

"Then we'll get our new engine". Bottas was first to blink on lap 37, Vettel following one lap later, both going to super-softs.

"Ferrari ultimately have had a slightly better package".

Behind the Renaults, Force India's Esteban Ocon took ninth and Sauber's Charles Leclerc the final point in another impressive performance by the Monegasque rookie.

Both men were unhurt. Hartley went to hospital for precautionary tests but the team said he was OK.

"I said yesterday that this place means a lot to Ferrari and to have a race like this is unbelievable".

"Yesterday the vehicle balance was great into Turn Ten", he continued, "and usually the last sector is my strongest at this track, but I was just struggling with massive bumps into Turn Ten". He forced me to the inside. You can't win them all, and I'll try to recover from it tomorrow.
