As Lewis Hamilton easily won the Canadian Grand Prix from teammate Valtteri Bottas, the drama in the race surrounded the two Force Indias. Both had looked quick and were challenging Daniel Ricciardo for third. Sergio Perez was unable to make a move and, although Esteban Ocon behind him was on fresher tyres, a definitive team order never really came. By that stage, a recovering Sebastian Vettel (who’d had to pit on the first lap with a broken front wing) was up behind them and a position swap between the Force Indias became too risky. Vettel made a bold move to get past the duo and eventually finished fourth.
