Brit leads home McLaren team-mate Jenson Button
14 June 2010

Lewis Hamilton led home McLaren team-mate Jenson Button in an action-packed Formula One Canadian Grand Prix.

Ferrari's Fernando Alonso finished third, but could have won - he was passed by both McLarens at different moments when wrong-footed by others cars.

Red Bull had to settle for fourth and fifth - Sebastian Vettel nursing a car problem for much of the distance, and Mark Webber losing the lead when his strategy of leaving the super soft tyres until the final laps failed to pay off.

First GP I have watched from start to finish this season and really enjoyed it. THe Canadian GP has to be one of the better circuits to promote open racing with plenty of places for overtaking. Stratergy inevitably played it's part but some good wheel to wheel racing ensued even in the pit lane. For me the best race this season.
