This isn't over... #Vettel #F1 #CanadianGP #FIA https://t.co/4UHsOZx2J1Can't stop watching this. Viva Vettel. #F1 #CanadianGP https://t.co/N6ASU77meu"I don't think people should boo at Lewis." Vettel is just WINNING this race hard. #F1 #CanadianGPHamilton's car with the Number Two placard is the picture every F1 writer will want for their race review this week. #F1 #CanadianGPVettel switches the boards 🔀 #CanadianGP 🇨🇦 #F1 https://t.co/MzBT7krpGs
Retweeted by Raja SenWhoa. That [1] and [2] placard shuffle from Vettel. Moment of the year, come what may. Staking his claim. #F1 #CanadianGPOh, the applause for Seb. Bravissimo, Montreal. #F1 #CanadianGPDisappointing, graceless words from Hamilton. This is not how a true champion behaves. #F1 #CanadianGPWhat’s Seb supposed to do?Crazy ,the car stepped https://t.co/ybVmo5UkQL that point he was a passenger.

Crazy scenes here. #F1 #CanadianGPI don't know the procedure for appealing a penalty, but this one deserves to be overturned. Ridiculous. Making a mo… https://t.co/Q12C9BAa8LAmazing stuff from Vettel. Great drive, great pole, great race. Driver of the day, no question. #F1 #CanadianGP"Where the hell am I supposed to go?" Can feel Vettel's pain here. "I am focussed, but they are stealing the race from us." #F1 #CanadianGPHorrible, horrible decision from the FIA. Penalising Vettel sets a very wrong message. All he did was control his car! #F1 #CanadianGPThe Red Bull resurgence might have been exaggerated. Verstappen is on new Medium tyres but is nowhere near the top… https://t.co/0VKmL5tr7LHamilton consistently faster than Vettel ahead. Reeling him in. This should be interesting. #F1 #CanadianGPStunning lap from Hamilton. (Still hasn't matched the reds in Sector 3, though.) #F1 #CanadianGP https://t.co/ZoKjKOtrPuThat Ferrari really does look mighty in the third sector. #F1 #CanadianGP https://t.co/IbWY384PZJ1:15.3! Vettel hammering out a lap straight out of the gate. Perfect, when needed most. #F1 #CanadianGPLap 24. The top 3 separated by 4.5 seconds now as the pitstop window tantalisingly beckons. #F1 #CanadianGPLeClerc turning up the wick. It'll take a few fastest laps to catch Hamilton, though. #F1 #CanadianGPLap 19. Purple sectors from Sainz and Hulkenberg. The hard tyres are coming into their own now. #F1 #CanadianGPLeClerc needs to close the gap on Hamilton for the next 2-3 laps and then pit, forcing Mercedes to react. #F1 #CanadianGPThe Ferrari medium tyres are two laps older than the ones the Mercedes boys are wearing. Not that the laptimes show it. #F1 #CanadianGPGasly looking very shoddy on the hard tyres. Stopping this early is clearly not the right call... #F1 #CanadianGPCompelling battle. Verstappen looking very handy indeed. (Vettel would call him handsome.) #F1 #CanadianGPVerstappen chasing Bottas should give us a clear picture of how much that Red Bull can do on this power circuit. #F1 #CanadianGPThis is a good test for LeClerc. Can he put the heat on Hamilton ahead? Make him the meat in a Ferrari sandwich? #F1 #CanadianGPSolid start from Vettel, but Hamilton keeping pace behind him. Look to Verstappen for the drama, though. Here comes… https://t.co/gZW92OyWDXGo Canada. Give us a helluva race. #F1 #CanadianGP<3 Full-on commentator love. Listen. #F1 https://t.co/Jjs1McO95I @s3rioussam Dammit, Sharma.
