Lewis Hamilton, in what seemed like a normal day at the office, wins the 2015 F1 Canadian Grand Prix with ease, to the point he could ‘coast’ the corners on the last three laps.
Followed by team-mate Nico Rosbery in second spot, the Mercedes AMG silver arrows led from the start and never looked like faltering as the other teams squabbled for placing’s behind them.
Kimi Raikkonen managed to hold onto fourth, despite a spin that lost him precious time in his battle with Ferarri team-mate Sebastian Vettel, who had forced his way from the back of the grid to finish fifth.
A great race from Valtteri Bottas in the Williams was rewarded with a podium place in third, unlike Filipe Massa in the other Williams, who after a superb aggressive drive from 15th, had to settle for sixth place.
However, the race that gave great reason for celebration in the Silver Arrows camp, was the same race that proved woefully disappointing for the McLarens of Alonso and Button.
The underpowered Honda engines left Alonso arguing with the pits over fuel levels on lap 26 before retiring 20 laps later, and Jenson remaining totally silent throughout the race at the back of the field until being forced to retire on lap 58.
