Lewis Hamilton’s victory at the Grand Prix of Canada
in Montreal was hardly a stupor, but it came after another race of surprises as the most unpredictable season in years continued.
The McLaren driver drove beautifully, scoring his much-needed win on the day that he officially drove one more race for the team than his idol Ayrton Senna. The victory also put him back in the lead of the world championship after some great teamwork and strategy, and made history as he became the seventh winner in the first seven races of a season.
