Lewis Hamilton scored another spectacular victory on a cool cool day in Montreal. He was beaten away from the start by Sebastian Vettel and then had to fight off Nico Rosberg at the first corner. He then shadowed the Ferrari until a Virtual Safety Car saw Vettel dive into the pits, trying to gain an advantage from the caution. It could have been a great move, but it meant that when he emerged he was behind the two Red Bulls and they held him up, staying out longer than he expected. After they were gone, Hamilton kept going before switching to softs on lap 24. He then did a stint of 46 laps to the flag, while Vettel stopped again and had tyre that were 13 laps younger. But it was not enough, Hamilton stayed ahead… But, the signs are that Ferrari and Red Bull are both now getting close to the pace of the Mercedes and so the races promise to be exciting as the three big teams fight it out.
