"I wasn't happy with the auto, we had some problems".

In the 40th year since Gilles Villeneuve's victory at the Canadian Grand Prix, it is only fitting that a Ferrari will start at the front.

The day was less positive for two-time world champion Fernando Alonso, who was celebrating his 300th Formula One race.

Vettel was well aware of the many Prancing Pony flags in the packed grandstands at Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve as he kept the lead from pole position and coasted to victory on Sunday. "It's great when you have a session like that".

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

Sebastian Vettel has hit back at the description of the Canadian GP being boring and warned F1's "short-sighted" critics that some of the matches in football's upcoming World Cup won't be classics either.

"With the start we had, with the race we had, there was nothing more we could do", said Bottas, who has finished second four times this season, but hasn't yet won. The Briton has won the last three on the track that seems to suit the Mercedes vehicle with its heavy braking after long straightaways and tight chicanes.

Hamilton ultimately came home in fifth position, having lost out through the pit stop phase to Daniel Ricciardo, but expressed relief at reaching the chequered flag. After leading all three practice sessions, Red Bull driver Max Verstappen will start third, alongside Hamilton. He and Ferrari executed their race to perfection, took the lead in the title race and have left Hamilton and Mercedes with much to consider before racing resumes in France in a fortnight.

Verstappen's podium was his second of the year, and it eases some of the pressure he has felt with a series of mistakes that cost him and the Red Bull team in Azerbaijan and Monaco. "It was pretty straightforward, and in terms of strategy we did what we wanted to do". "But it showed in Monaco that we have a great auto". Kimi Raikkonen, in the second Ferrari, was sixth.

"We need to review procedures and make sure we have a very simple procedure for every circuit", added Whiting. We all know we're on lap 69, but to someone who is a slightly more casual observer, they might think "oh, this must mean it's the last lap".

"They've been waiting long enough for Ferrari to win here", Vettel said. I was very happy with my first lap, and then there was a Safety Car, and I was like 'no!' But then I had a good restart, so I stayed out of trouble, and then I was able to open a gap gradually, control the pace.
