In the previous five races in Montreal not without leaving the safety car – here and now already in the first round of local “aborigine” Stroll slammed into the wall the car Hartley — both drivers dropped out of the race, and the track out the safety car.
The drama of the situation is that Red Bull before the end of may had to decide on an engine supplier for next season: Renault, or Honda? In Montreal on the same machine Toro Rosso left the previous version of a Japanese engine and car Hartley delivered an enhanced motor Honda. To test the new engine of the Honda did not work, and time to think already of the Austrian “stables” almost there….
In the future, the race went by quite uneventfully, except that after contact with Sainz, the machine Perez skidded through the green island and flew across the field. But colleagues miracle otrulil and there were no serious accidents.
Daniel ricciardo after his pit stop on lap 18 returned to the track ahead of Lewis Hamilton who had problems with overheating power plant that almost led to a crash.
McLaren rapidly losing the chance to keep Alonso in the 42nd round of the engine on the car of the Spanish lost power and Fernando out of the race. Sorry, of course it was his anniversary 300-I race. However, the double world champion has a chance to win a prototype of Toyota’s legendary marathon “24 hours of Le Mans”, which will be held next weekend.
The end of the race was marked by an amusing incident — local model Winnie Harlow, which the organizers have entrusted the checkered flag, he waved them to the round ahead. Tough guys in the cockpits glamorous of the young lady did not believe, and drove the race to the end. But, according to the rules, the finish gave her the go-ahead – because of this, the best lap was not counted Riccardo and his team-mate Verstappen.
And the canadian Grand Prix was won by Sebastian Vettel, having won a third victory of the season and 50th in his career. For the first time since Schumacher in 2001 Ferrari were celebrating the triumph in Montreal.
