Sebastian Vettel recovered to finish fourth despite falling to the back of the field early on in the Canadian Grand Prix.
His Ferrari’s performance advantage helped him make light work of the stragglers early in the race and by lap 21 he was up to eighth. His next target was Fernando Alonso, whose poor straight-line speed made him an easy target for almost every other car on the track.
Vettel driving skill counted for more when it came to passing the two Force Indias. He picked off first Esteban Ocon, then Sergio Perez, to claim fourth. A late burst of speed wasn’t quite enough to catch Daniel Ricciardo’s third-placed Red Bull, but Vettel had limited the damage.
The driver who gained the most places from his grid position was home favourite Lance Stroll. The Williams driver climbed eight places to secure his first points finish.
