Canada a 'major wake-up call' for Mercedes

Valtteri Bottas finished second but never seriously threatened the lead, while Lewis Hamilton finished down in fifth, dropping him to a point behind Vettel in the standings having had a 14-point lead coming to Canada.

They will need to have that resolved in time for the next race, the French Grand at the Paul Ricard Circuit at Le Castellet next week, a venue that has been off the calendar since 1990 and represents new ground for all the drivers. It was the seventh race on the engine so it's saw its life.

"I think they've waited long enough for Ferrari to do well here".

"We've got to keep working, which I know the guys are".

Hamilton, running on a seven-race-old engine, reported he was down on power in the opening exchanges, and had to pit earlier than planned as his Mercedes team added coolant to his overheating machinery.

"I am still here to win, I still believe we can win", Hamilton said. "I will take this loss with my head held high and then hopefully have a better couple of races".

"That is a lot", he said.

"I think Ferrari have had a slightly better package all round, they've been doing a slightly better job so we've got to do more".

"No big surprises. We thought that Ferrari and Mercedes were going to qualify on the Ultras".

Sebastian Vettel has hit back at the description of the Canadian GP being boring and warned F1's "short-sighted" critics that some of the matches in football's upcoming World Cup won't be classics either. Force India's Esteban Ocon finished ninth, while Sauber's Charles Leclerc completed yet another solid race to finish in 10th, his third points finish of the season.

"You need to get the right balance between pushing the development very hard and adding performance to the vehicle and at the same time keeping reliability", Wolff said. "He just ran me out of road", said the luckless Hartley. "It is more that we have seen today a Ferrari that has been the stronger auto, stronger in qualifying, stronger in the race, and at no time did we have a real chance to fight for the win".

"It is a three-way fight".

The only other retirement besides Stroll and Hartley was McLaren's Fernando Alonso who reported a loss of power due to an exhaust problem and was forced to garage his auto - a disappointing end to the Spaniard's 300th race. "We can not take anything for granted and think it is going to be a walk in the park". "That is the kind of wake-up call you get".
