Lewis Hamilton says Mercedes turned a corner with Canadian Grand Prix win

"You can see the relief in the team that we've bounced back after such a hard weekend, it's just what the doctor ordered".

The pole, which left him three adrift of Schumacher's all-time record of 68, came 10 years on from the first of his Formula One career at the same track with McLaren in his rookie 2007 season.

"To come away from Monaco, everyone pulled together and I don't think in five years I have ever seen them pull together like they did", he said.

Hamilton warned, however, that there was still much to do and it would take time.

The feeling of relief at Mercedes as Hamilton crossed the line was evident from the TV pictures beamed across the world of Mercedes honchos Toto Wolff and Niki Lauda exchanging congratulatory handshakes.

"I am proud of you for doing that", Hamilton said before Stewart, star of stage and screen, replied: "I don't care". "It's just what the doctor ordered".

From there a Mercedes one two was a formality.

Valtteri Bottas was second, 19.7 seconds behind, to give Mercedes a sweep of the top two spots as it jostles with Ferrari in the championship points race. One of the problems was the wind tunnel gave them one reading and the simulator gave them a different and along with that a mistake in setting up their vehicle which prevented them getting Pirelli's supersoft and ultrasoft tires working in their limited temperature windows.

The other Ferrari of Kimi Raikkonen finished in 7th place, followed by Renault's Nico Hulkenberg.

Vettel led a Ferrari one-two in the final session. "They may be super-quick at the next race in Baku, so to close the gap is going to take a lot, but anything can happen". Indeed fresh from sealing the 65th pole position of his career, to draw him level with the tally of his boyhood hero Ayrton Senna, the 32-year-old Briton led every lap in a masterful display at a track which has been so kind to him over the years.

Schiff: 'Useless' for Trump to Fire Mueller
The very appointment of Mr Mueller only happened after calls for such a move sparked by Mr Comey's firing. Mr Comey at least has the advantage of having documented their meetings soon after they had finished.

The same could not be said for his rival Vettel.

This was Lewis Hamilton's 6th win in Canada in last 10 races in the city and it is also the best record that he has recorded at all the circuits that he raced in. Sadly, Vettel's assumption was never put to the test.

It was a clear turnaround for Mercedes, after the Monaco slump.

"I think coming back to that group at the end of the race", Vettel said.

He nearly clawed his way back up to the podium.

Vettel started on the front row but finished off the podium for the first time this year.

His veteran teammate Felipe Massa was seventh in qualifying. "I was fairly busy the whole race, had a lot of things to do, from a racing point of view was great, I really enjoyed it, it wasn't boring at all, but yeah I think as I said, the pace was there, the vehicle deserved to finish higher up".

Bottas said: "As a team we really needed this one-two to get the points and I am very proud of this team and what they have done since Monaco".

Vettel was not the only driver to be negatively affected by the start.

It will be a major challenge for Hamilton to hold him off in the race. "Walk in the park for you today".
