Lewis Hamilton had secured his fourth pole position at the Canadian GP. This circuit offers plenty of overtaking, however, the most race winners have begun from pole position.
The race began clean with no incident into the first corner. More or less everyone held their position. Sebastian Vettel who started from 18th position gained three places within a matter of a few corners.
Like every other race both Mercedes drivers took to the front and extended their lead in early stages itself. It was once again a race for third place and every other F1 driver made it interesting for fans.
There were loads of interesting overtakes and tyre strategies that were applied by several teams. Kimi Raikkonen seemed safe in third place, however, a sudden surge of power in his Ferrari literally spun his race around.
In the end Lewis Hamilton one clearly from Nico Rosberg and third place was won by Valtteri Bottas. It was the first podium for Williams in 2015 Formula One championship.
Vettel's strategy and car worked exceptionally well and he ended his race in fifth place, gaining valuable championship points. Teammate Raikkonen settled for fourth place and beat Vettel for the very first time in 2015.
Disaster continued for McLaren Honda with both Alonso and Button citing their displeasure. Both cars were forced into retirement, the main issue was their car had no pace and was still consuming more fuel than others.
