Sebastian Vettel took home victory on Sunday at the 2018 Formula 1 Canadian Grand Prix to end a 14-year drought at the event's Circuit Gilles Villeneuve home.
Vettel started the race from pole and stayed in control through to the end to finish some 7.0 seconds clear of Mercedes-AMG's Valtteri Bottas, the second finisher. Red Bull Racing's Max Verstappen crossed the line 8.3 seconds after Vettel to claim the third spot on the podium.
The race started off with a first-lap collision between Toro Rosso's Brendon Hartley and Williams' Lance Stroll, which brought out the safety car. When being passed by Hartley on the outside of a turn, Stroll lost control and came into contact with Hartley who was then sandwiched between Stroll and a wall.
The race was over for both drivers and Hartley was taken to hospital though fortunately was given the all clear from doctors. Stewards later determined the crash to be a racing incident.
The race resumed four laps later and from here Vettel, on a one-stop strategy, didn't have any issues so only had to manage his lead, the tires, the fuel consumption and pay particular attention to the backmarkers.
