Rosberg tells Mercedes to keep drivers

Rosberg tells Mercedes to keep drivers

The race was largely processional at the front, with few overtaking attempts, the only drama coming at the end as the checkered flag was waved a lap too early by Canadian model Winnie Harlow. "It was as simple as that, it wasn't anything to do with the fact it was a celebrity flag-waver", he explained. While Hamilton has won two races himself, he had a hard race in Montreal - which traditionally has been a strong circuit for Mercedes - and could only finish fifth behind teammate Valtteri Bottas and the two Red Bulls. "Of course we strive for perfection but fortunately, there was no harm done as far as it affected the result".

Hamilton saw his 14-point championship lead wiped out after a dominant Sebastian Vettel marched to victory at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.

Mercedes has been off the pace the past two races.

Lewis Hamilton is braced for a painful week after he lost his championship lead to Sebastian Vettel in Canada on Sunday.

While ultimately grateful to finish at all after cooling problems afflicted his car's engine, Hamilton is aware of the ground Mercedes have lost in the two races since dominating the Spanish GP in mid-May.

When asked if he has any concerns this year's vehicle might not be good enough to win the championship, Hamilton replied: "I don't let that get into my mind, no".

"It's unfortunate, I had a good start", said Stroll. He earned his first Formula One points with a ninth-place finish at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve past year.

"That will be the first sign of weakness and my mind is not weak".

But Vettel says it is inevitable that some races will be more uneventful than others, and delivered a staunch defence of excitement levels in F1. I am still here to win.

"I've got complete confidence in my guys and I'm putting that energy towards them". "Ferrari was better than us this week, with the Red Bull very close to us, so I think there was nothing we could have done better".

"It doesn't matter where I start on the grid, I don't look at any driver and say "oh I might lose to that person". Although it happened in practice, it put him out of contention for a race win.

"I even watched on TV and it said 'final lap.' I asked and they said 'keep pushing.' I was a bit confused". Hopefully when you guys are writing stories, I think a year ago there was, oh Mercedes has the best vehicle and all those different things and ultimately I think we did the better job...
