Ferrari's easy Canada win a 'wake-up call' to Mercedes

Sebastian Vettel

The last time the Prancing Horse won the teams title was all the way back in 2008 - Mercedes, meanwhile, have won the last four.

"I need to go deeper and deeper into this of course, but it seems no-one really knew".

The Englishman, who arrived in North America with a 14-point lead over Vettel, will now head to the next round in France trailing his Ferrari rival by one point. Although the final results weren't changed - apart from the fastest lap being awarded to Max Verstappen instead of Daniel Ricciardo - the mix up did present a safety concern as marshals appeared from behind the race track walls to congratulate the drivers as they were still racing.

He said the win was special because it came 40 years after Canadian Gilles Villeneuve had won his first race for Ferrari. It was the same for Bottas running behind Vettel. Were any reminder needed that the four-times world champion is a fearsome talent with the right vehicle beneath him, Canada was salutary evidence.

G-7 summit with Trump a 'sobering' experience
Trump and Kim are expected to meet in Singapore on Tuesday with talks focusing on the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., also called Trudeau's comments a stab in the back to Trump.

"We always do our best, but there's a lot of human beings - different countries, different languages, so it's not always absolutely ideal".

"Ferrari ultimately have had a slightly better package". The Force India of Esteban Ocon was ninth, with Charles Leclerc's Sauber coming home in 10th.

The German made a strong start and, as Bottas was left to fend off Verstappen's attack, the Ferrari started to sprint clear, only for the race to be put under a safety vehicle following a huge crash between Toro Rosso's Brendon Hartley and Williams' Lance Stroll.

The Spaniard now turns his attentions to the Le Mans 24 Hours race with Toyota next weekend. Hartley went to hospital for precautionary tests but the team said he was OK.

Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump in Singapore for historic summit
Francis said he wanted yet again to send "a special thought in friendship and prayer" to the beloved Korean people. US President Donald Trump trusts his deal-making intuition to prepare for talks with North Korea's Kim Jong Un .

"The chequered flag was shown a lap early because there was a miscommunication between the start platform and the guy that they call the starter, the guy that starts and finishes the races", he said.

"Yesterday the vehicle balance was great into Turn Ten", he continued, "and usually the last sector is my strongest at this track, but I was just struggling with massive bumps into Turn Ten". I had a moment of oversteer. "So I tried it all but I wasn't sure until the end if it was enough".

Here's what else we learned in the Canadian GP.

It was the 300th F1 race for two-time champion Fernando Alonso of McLaren, good for fourth all-time. Even given the new engine Vettel had the pace of the field and managed his one-stop race untroubled to the flag.

US Special Operations Member Killed In Somalia
