Ten Canadian Grand Prix facts


1) In the seven races so far the pole-winner has only led the opening lap twice – Russia (Nico Rosberg) and Monaco (Daniel Ricciardo).

2) Sebastian Vettel qualified within 0.2 seconds of pole, the closest he has been since he was on pole in Singapore last year.

3) Lewis Hamilton has now led more than 2500 laps and Mercedes over 3000.

4) Hamilton has now won the Canadian Grand Prix five times – more than any other race (he has won the Hungarian, Chinese and US Grand Prix four times – three at Austin and one at Indy).

5) Hamilton and Vettel are now tied on 1,974 career points.

6) Rosberg is in the middle of his worst run of results since 2013, his championship lead has been cut to just nine points.

7) Valtteri Bottas scored his second successive Canadian GP podium finish. Stark contrast to his Monaco form.

9) A change of form at Haas? Esteban Gutierrez beat Romain Grosjean in qualifying and the race for the second successive race.
