Oh No: Ferrari mistakes Toronto for Montreal in tweet

Hey Ferrari, the CN Tower is in Toronto, not Montreal

Mercedes one minute 11.459 seconds.

The "Senna S" opens the lap with a small right kink leading into a heavy braking zone at Turn 1, a tight left-hander that immediately opens into an arcing right-hander, with the imposing grandstands giving the complex a stadium feel. Rubens Barrichello (Brazil) Ferrari, 2004.

All three have won two races so far this season. The other occasions were 1987 and 1977.

A four-time Formula One champion, Hamilton is looking for his fourth straight win and his seventh overall in Montreal, which would tie Michael Schumacher for the most at the track; no one else has won more than three times.

Hamilton has a record 74 career poles, Vettel 53.Max Verstappen, at 20 years old, can still become the youngest ever pole sitter this season. Vettel has 102, Kimi Raikkonen 94. Red Bull Racing's Sebastian Vettel led all but three laps and easily took the checkered flag by over 14 seconds.

Mercedes are 22 points ahead of Ferrari in the constructors' championship.

In the morning session, Williams driver Sergey Sirotkin spun and hit a wall, but was able to continue.

Haas's Romain Grosjean has yet to open his account for 2018 and including last season the Frenchman has not scored for 10 races in a row.

Porsche 911 Speedster Concept celebrates 70 years of good times
Welcome to what might just be the 991-era 911's last hurrah - the Porsche 911 Speedster Concept. It returned again in 2010, when Porsche built 356 examples based on the 997-generation 911.

Daniel Ricciardo famously grabbed his maiden win at the 2014 running of the event after both Mercedes cars were slowed by an MGU-K failure.

The British driver was hoping to have an updated engine for the race at Montreal's Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve, but his Mercedes team didn't have it ready on time.

The other factor playing against Hamilton is his engine with the news today that Mercedes will not be introducing a new, upgraded unit for this weekend over reliability fears.

An opening lap crash at turn three involving three cars brought out the only safety vehicle of the race, but otherwise, the race was as straightforward a race as it could be for Hamilton and Mercedes.

And for Lance Stroll, this marks his second trip to his hometown as an F1 driver and he'll have good memories having scored his first points there 12 months ago.

A spokesman said the engine to be raced in Montreal was not being asked to do more miles than intended - it had originally been scheduled to be used again at the Hungarian Grand Prix at the end of July.

That means Fernando Alonso could be set for a disappointing 300th F1 Grand Prix weekend though of course, the Spaniard can never be ruled out.

McLaren are marking the 50th anniversary of the team's first win, by founder Bruce McLaren in Belgium on June 9, 1968.
