    • Lewis Hamilton’s win on Sunday was his seventh Canadian Grand Prix victory – the first time he’s ever won any Grand Prix seven times in his career

    • It is Hamilton’s fifth triumph in seven races in 2019, which is his best-ever start to a Formula 1 campaign

    • Sebastian Vettel led his 100th career race today, joining Hamilton and Michael Schumacher as the only men to achieve the feat

    • Home hero Lance Stroll went from Q1 elimination on Saturday to ninth place on Sunday, just as he did in Canada 2017, and as he did in Australia and Azerbaijan this year

    • By finishing fourth, Valtteri Bottas failed to make the Canada podium for the first time since 2014. He did, though, have the consolation of scoring an extra point for the fastest lap of the race
