Sunday 10th June 2012
The 2012 season reached a streak of seven different winners from the first seven races when Lewis Hamilton won in Canada. It was a classic high-deg Pirelli race which saw Fernando Alonso and Sebastian Vettel running first and second as the race entered its closing stages – albeit on older, worn tyres. Hamilton had the benefit of fresher rubber and was able to sweep past the pair of them in the last 10 laps and win his first race of the year. Vettel slipped to fourth at the end while Alonso dropped to fifth, thanks to Romain Grosjean charging through to second and Sergio Perez third for Sauber – from 15th on the grid.
