Sebastian Vettel 'surprised' by one Red Bull decision during Canadian GP qualifying

Daniel Ricciardo on track at Montreal

The Ferrari man started on pole and lead throughout around Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, where Hamilton had triumphed in each of the past three seasons.

Daniel Ricciardo, a victor two weeks ago in Monaco in another race panned for being boring, brought his Red Bull in third, just ahead of defending champion Lewis Hamilton's Mercedes.

Valtteri Bottas was second in his Mercedes, about six seconds back.

In the final five laps, Hamilton pushed Ricciardo hard in the battle for fourth but the Australian - victor at Monaco last time out - just held on with the four-time world champion forced to relinquish his standings lead as he recorded his lowest placing of the season.

"They've been waiting long enough for Ferrari to win here", Vettel said. "Gilles Villeneuve, the favourite driver of Enzo Ferrari. I'm just happy. It was a great grand prix to win".

Sebastian Vettel won the Canadian Grand Prix on Sunday as Australian Daniel Ricciardo finished fourth in a freaky ending to the race.

Sebastian Vettel made some history for his Italian team this weekend, first by taking pole on Saturday, the first time in 17 years since Michael Schumacher did so in 2001.

His engine was six races old but Hamilton would have expected better.

Stroll, 19, was in is second Canadian GP.

But Bottas and Hamilton may have been set back by the team's inability to get an updated engine ready in time for the race, while Ferrari and Red Bull both had new parts. "It's unbelievable. I said yesterday how much this place means to Ferrari and to have a race like we had today is unbelievable", said Vettel.

Hamilton retains a slim lead over Vettel in driver standings and will likely challenge the German when racing begins in earnest. That might provide an internal headache for Red Bull, a team that has been known for financially rewarding its drivers for claiming the fastest lap of the race.

"I was just anxious, I told them also on the last lap, then people don't jump on the track, waving flags and celebrating, because we're still going at full pace".

Hamilton came within a second of challenging Ricciardo late in the race, but then encountered fuel troubles. It's not satisfactory, luckily it didn't affect the result but it may need us to review procedures and make sure we have a very simple procedure for every circuit. Daniel Ricciardo took the chequered flag in fourth ahead of Hamilton with Kimi Raikkonen sixth for Ferrari.

The same issue occurred at the 2014 Chinese Grand Prix and Whiting believes it is due to a misinterpretation of the lap countdown on F1's world feed.
