Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton (right) celebrates winning the Canadian Grand Prix race with teammate Valtteri Bottas in Montreal, June 11, 2017.

Hamilton's sixth win in Canada, and third in a row in Montreal, was the 56th of his career.

Valtteri Bottas was second, 19.7 seconds behind, to give Mercedes a sweep of the top two spots as it jostles with Ferrari in the championship points race.

With the win, Hamilton cut Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel's lead to just 12 points after starting the race 25 points behind. I would have loved to get a better lap at the end. I'm shaking. Ayrton, I know for many of you was your favourite driver and he was for me.

A week after Mercedes missed the podium completely in Monaco, Hamilton completed 70 laps in 1 hour, 33 minutes, 5.154 seconds on a hot and windy day on Montreal's Ile Notre-Dame.

Canadian teenage rookie Lance Stroll answered some of his critics by scoring his first points in Formula One for Williams, crossing the line in ninth place to the cheers of a sell-out home crowd.

"I am proud of you for doing that", Hamilton said before Stewart, star of stage and screen, replied: "I don't care". "We came here, the auto is back to where it should be. I hope this can continue throughout the year", Independent quoted Hamilton as saying.

Although Lewis Hamilton acknowledges that Ferrari will still be "be very hard to beat", he was delighted to close the gap to Sebastian Vettel in Canada. "It was bad that we didn't spot it - I had a little bit of a feel [that there was damage] out of Turn 6 and then the safety auto came, but I wasn't sure because it was the first lap of the race and it was very windy, so I thought it might have been a gust and the first lap the tyres are not there".

Not only did Vettel suffer the broken wing on the opening lap but brake issues for Kimi Raikkonen late in the race meant he wasn't able to make inroads on the Force India pairing. A stop for a new wing followed, forcing him into a two-stop strategy, while Hamilton could stick to his plan, staying out long on the quicker ultra soft rubber and pitting only once, the optimum for the race, but Vettel was determined to limit the damage.

Vettel climbed back through the field up to sixth and began to apply pressure to the battling Force Indias of Sergio Perez and Esteban Ocon, who were trying to hunt down Ricciardo in third.

Daniel Ricciardo rounded out the podium after a tense battle for third.

Two-time world champion Fernando Alonso continued to struggle with his McLaren Honda.

Vettel had to pursue his own singular race and did so with admirable determination.

The first corner squeeze left Vettel fourth, but with a damaged wing that needed to be replaced. However, the same could barely avert Vettel's charge on the Indian team as the Ferrari driver passed both drivers to take fourth. "It felt very reminiscent of 2007 in terms of how the race went".
