Lewis Hamilton won the Canadian Grand Prix giving McLaren 2 consecutive 1-2 finishes, propelling them upwards in the constructor's tally for the current Formula One season...This year's Formula One season only seems to be getting hotter. The Canadian Grand Prix had its fair share of tense moments. The notable ones are a collision between Ferrariís Felipe Massa and Force Indiaís Vitantonio Liuzzi. This split the race into 2 sections and those that didn't stand a chance were seen racing for points. Also Mark Webber was penalized 5 places on the grid for replacing his gearbox, and had to start the race from 7th place. Although Hamilton won, he was seen struggling for grip in his McLaren. Ferrari's Fernando Alonso went on to take the last place on the podium.
Hamilton had this to say, "It was one of those races, where it was very hard to judge how hard to push and how much to try and conserve your tires. Itís been a tremendous weekend, fantastic. Things have just gone so well for us, and thereís been incredible support from all the Brits out here. And the team did an exceptional job. This was one of the toughest races so far but thatís what you want, you want it to be difficult. I won my first Grand Prix here three years ago, and to come back and repeat that has been a real pleasure."
