would eventually be beaten by Hamilton and Mercedes' one-stop, which turned out to steal victory from Vettel.
 
With Hamilton's victory and Rosberg's fifth place, the championship standings are getting very even. After seven of the 21 races of the championship the German is leading with just nine points ahead of the Brit.

since last year's Mexican Grand Prix.
 
With a new poor start from pole position Hamilton could not resist a brilliant start from Sebastian Vettel. The British driver had to defend himself from the attacks of his team-mate and after a slight touch between the two Mercedes drivers Rosberg ended up going off track and dropped to tenth position at the end lap one. Vettel and Hamilton kept fighting each other for victory in Canada.
 
To everyone's surprise Vettel entered the pits to switch to super soft tires on lap 13, which indicated a two-stop strategy as the mandatory tires in Montréal were soft. Hamilton would come in for his  only stop six laps later. After Vettel's second stop, the German driver ended up more than seven seconds behind Hamilton. The German still closed the gap on the world champion, but the Mercedes driver always kept a safe distance.
