Vettel's victory, at a track where Hamilton has dominated in the past but at which he could manage only fifth place this time, left the quadruple world champions a single point apart after seven races.

This marked the first Montreal race that a Ferrari driver won the pole position since Michael Schumacher took the first grid back in 2001.

"That's why I am just taking this one. How can I be better?' I am going to keep doing that".

Bottas' second also sees him jump back above Ricciardo into third in the standings, albeit 35 and 37 points behind respectively.

Max Verstappen kept close to Bottas as best he could - and later confessed to a little bit of contact between his Red Bull and the Mercedes at the start, shrugging it off with, "That's racing, isn't it?"

"The moment anybody in any sport, and I would imagine also in business but if you imagine like in Tennis or Golf or whatever, if you look across the net and you think damn it I might lose this, you've already lost".

"I'm sure the next couple of days it will get more and more painful because ultimately it was a poor weekend, but it could be a lot worse".

Mercedes were never in the victory equation, having not got engine updates ready in time for the race while Ferrari and Red Bull both had new parts.

"I think we've got potential in this auto and when you guys are writing your stories, I think past year there was "oh, Mercedes have the best car" and all those different things, but ultimately I think we did the better job", he added.

New Zealander Hartley had been trying to pass Stroll on the opening lap when the latter had a brief wobble, causing the two to clash.

The race was over for both drivers and Hartley was taken to hospital though fortunately was given the all clear from doctors.

"We've got to keep working, which I know the guys are". The two ran side-by-side on the run up to the second chicane, but Stroll broke loose and, upon correcting his FW41 chassis, drifted right into Hartley.
