Hamilton wins F1 Canadian GP, picks up points on Vettel

"I'm impressed at the way they fixed the problem and now we are back in reckoning".

Before Stewart could change his mind, Ricciardo pulled off his other boot and filled it with champagne, which the Star Trek and X-Men star quaffed.

The champions looked their old selves in Montreal as Hamilton led team mate Valtteri Bottas to their first one-two since the Finn joined in January as replacement for retired champion Nico Rosberg.

The pink Force India cars of Sergio Perez and Esteban Ocon were fifth and sixth after battling each other on the track - and over the radio - for position down the stretch.

"I wanted to be on the podium in the end", Vettel said.

"It was tough I was defending the whole race and we weren't that quick to be honest".

"So it's awesome to be on the podium here in Canada".

Ricciardo claimed his third-straight Formula One podium, finishing behind victor Lewis Hamilton and his Mercedes teammate Valterri Bottas.

Sebastian Vettel had to settle for second on the grid in Montreal after he was unable to match an awesome lap by Lewis Hamilton.

Hamilton made the most of the re-start and resisted another Verstappen attack before Vettel, his front wing clearly damaged, pitted for repairs.

And since Attorney General Jeff Sessions has recused himself from the investigation, Rosenstein is acting in that capacity. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, however, who would be the one doing the firing, put the rumors to bed Tuesday.

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.

There had been early drama when the safety auto was brought out in Montreal for the first time since 2014.

After Verstappen made his lightning start, he appeared to be the strongest placed Red Bull to mount a podium challenge and that continued until lap 11, when his Renault power unit failed.

Vettel had to pit early to get a new front wing and that dropped him to the rear of the field and forced him on to a two-stop strategy on a day when the majority of the field stopped for fresh rubber only once.

Ricciardo then had enough of a gap to hold off the faster Ferrari on the final lap.

Montreal's Circuit Gilles Villeneuve has seen the fabled Scuderia win 13 grand prix, of which one was taken by the track's namesake in 1978.

"I had my first pole here, I had my first win here 10 years ago - so to repeat it this weekend is incredibly special", added Hamilton.

Lewis Hamilton has vowed to deliver a Floyd Mayweather-inspired knockout blow to Ferrari's championship credentials after hauling himself back into the title race with victory in Canada. "To equal him. I just can't believe it". There was some discussion between Perez and Force India, telling him to let Ocon past - Perez didn't want to and Force India agreed to give him three laps to overtake Ricciardo before Ocon would try to overtake.

His teammate, Kimi Raikkonen, wasn't so lucky.

Behind the top four it was Perez in fifth followed by Ocon, Raikkonen in the second Ferrari, Hulkenberg, Stroll and Grosjean in the last points place.
