"And for Scuderia Ferrari this track and this country means a lot, as this is the place where Gilles Villeneuve came from".

A race official instructed Harlow to wave the flag on what should have been the penultimate lap of the race, meaning the final result was classified from one lap earlier.

"It's 50 for me but after a long stretch that Ferrari didn't win here, I saw the people around and they were super happy".

Vettel's victory is Ferrari's first in Montreal since 2004 and leaves him one point clear of Hamilton in the drivers' standings, while Ferrari closes the gap to Mercedes in the constructors' championship to 17 points.

Daniel Ricciardo, a victor two weeks ago in Monaco in another race panned for being tiresome, brought his Red Bull in third, just ahead of defending champion Lewis Hamilton's Mercedes.

"Like every grand prix there's not one person to dedicate it to", said Vettel. We all know we're on lap 69, but to someone who is a slightly more casual observer, they might think "oh, this must mean it's the last lap".

Mercedes offered Hamilton the option of turning down his engine in the closing laps, but he declined, pressuring Ricciardo and getting to within a second of the Red Bull.

Vettel ruled from lights-to-flag at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in an emphatic display as he crossed the line ahead of Valtteri Bottas with Red Bull's Max Verstappen in third.
