2018 Canadian GP: Formula One F1 Race Results - Vettel, Ferrari Win!

New points leader! Easy day! Sebastian Vettel and his No. 5 Ferrari easily led every lap to win the 2018 Formula One F1 Canadian Grand Prix at the Circuit Gil Villeneuve in Montreal, Canada. For Vettel, it is his third win of the season, and 50th of his Formula One F1 career. It was also his 103rd career podium. Vettel is one win behind Alain Prost for third on the all-time list. With the 25 points for the win, Vettel now leads the driver's championship by one point over Lewis Hamilton.

For Ferrari, it is the teams' first victory in Canada since Michael Schumacher won the event in 2004. It is also Ferrari's third win of the year.

Valtteri Bottas and his No. 77 Mercedes barely held on to second at the start, but held on he did. Bottas would pick-up his fourth podium of the year, and equal his best finish of the season. It is also Bottas' 26th career podium.

Max Verstappen and his No. 33 Red Bull would nearly make a miraculous start, but he just couldn't get past Bottas. Even so, Verstappen would claim his second podium of the year, and 13th of his Formula One F1 career.

Daniel Ricciardo turned a monster lap during the pitstop exchange to put himself ahead of Lewis Hamilton to take fourth.

Lewis Hamilton had an off day. The difference between this year and last, is that because of the three-team fight at the front an off-day now means a fifth place finish instead of a second or third place finish. Hamilton is still second in the drivers points championship.

It as a fabulous start by Max Verstappen (Red Bull). He would be side-by-side with Valtteri Bottas (Mercedes) heading into Turn One. But Bottas would drive brilliantly and keep the young charger behind by Turn Three. Vettel would easily lead with a solid start.

Behind, the Safety Car would arrive for the fourth time in eight years as Lance Stroll (Williams) would get it wrong and smash into Brendon Hartley (Toro Rosso). The Canadian clearly blowing his home race at Turn Six.

Vettel would get a great start on lap five to lead the pack. Bottas, Verstappen, Lewis Hamilton and Daniel Ricciardo would follow. Five laps later Vettel's advantage would be three seconds. Hamilton would struggle to keep close to Verstappen.

On Lap 17, Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton would be the first of the leaders to stop. Mercedes would remove some tape to help Hamilton with a cooling issue on the power unit. Hamilton would ask his team, "Why did we pit so early?" Mercedes would report they fixed a "PU" problem. Both drivers would switch to the supersoft (red) Pirelli compound and return in fifth and sixth respectively. Ricciardo would be the next to stop - and take on the supersoft tyre - and he would leap frog Hamilton to take fifth.

Kimi Raikkonen would pit on Lap 34, and also take on the supersoft tyre. He would return to the track in sixth, just barely getting out behind Hamilton.

Bottas would stop on Lap 37, take on the supersoft tyre, and returns in second. Vettel would stop on the next lap with a 2.7 second stop. Nice, clean and Vettel would return to the front with a six second lead on Bottas, and Verstappen another six seconds back.

Fernando Alonso's miserable time at McLaren would continue as he would be forced from the Grand Prix on Lap 44. The issue, and exhaust failure.

Red Bull boss Christian Horner would report on Lap 45 that things looked "pretty set at the moment."

And they were, Vettel and Ferrari would go on to win the 2018 Canadian Grand Prix!

Next up, the Formula One F1 series will head to Paul Ricard for the return of the French Grand Prix in two weeks.
