Title-chasing Hamilton returns to happy hunting ground at Canadian Grand Prix

Hey Ferrari, the CN Tower is in Toronto, not Montreal

Then came three-time defending Montreal victor Lewis Hamilton, Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel, and Mercedes' Valtteri Bottas. The other occasions were 1987 and 1977.

The Mercedes driver is the most successful driver of the current generation around the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve with six wins to his name, just one shy of the record held by Michael Schumacher.

For his part Vettel believes Ferrari's 2018 auto is not now "a true match" for Mercedes, despite having won the first race.

The 19-year-old began his career in karting at the age of 10. Red Bull Racing's Sebastian Vettel led all but three laps and easily took the checkered flag by over 14 seconds.

As the leading customers of Mercedes and Ferrari, Force India and Haas will be taking the fight to Renault, who have been the ever-consistent presence in the top 10 this season.

Since then Hamilton has added five more wins including a hat-trick of Mercedes triumphs in 2015, 2016 and 2017 to move within reach of becoming the first man to secure four straight pole positions - he converted pole in each of those years - and four consecutive wins.

Daniel Ricciardo famously grabbed his maiden win at the 2014 running of the event after both Mercedes cars were slowed by an MGU-K failure.

Mercedes has postponed the introduction of its new Formula 1 engine, after a last minute quality issue emerged on the eve of the Canadian Grand Prix.

The 2018 edition of the Canadian Grand Prix takes place on Sunday.

The plan for the works cars was to switch to the new specification for Canada and then use the original units again for a seventh time in Hungary, a track where ultimate power counts less than elsewhere. The safety auto was deployed six times, another record.

The circuit's defining pair of turns is the final complex - a heavy braking zone and a right-left chicane with high kerbs and a wall on exit: the Wall of Champions, named after the high-profile victims it has claimed in previous seasons.

McLaren's Fernando Alonso is celebrating his 300th race entered, although it will be his 298th actual start. Williams rookie Lance Stroll continued Canada's impressive run of backmarkers into the points, as the Canadian finished P9 after starting P17 in his first home F1 race.
