Lewis Hamilton

“I love Montreal! It’s really special to win here again – the place where I had my first win back in 2007. The team did a fantastic job, so a big thank you to everyone. I wouldn’t say it’s a relief because I’ve had good pace for both of the past two races – I’m just happy to get another win for me and the team”

“It was quite close after the stops. I think because Nico was in my tow he was using less fuel, so I was having to save a bit while managing the gap. It was really just about matching the times each lap.”

“On behalf of everyone in the team I’d like to dedicate this to my engineer Bono’s father, who passed away last week. Bono has had a tough time but he’s been fantastic all weekend, so this one is for him.”

“It was a tough race, with tyres, brakes and fuel all on the limit. The problem for me was to cool my brakes behind Lewis. I had to take different lines to get some fresh air.” “

In the last 10 laps I ramped up the pace and started to attack by using some of my electronic Hybrid power, which I had saved until this point.”

“But the problem is that your team mate’s engineers always have knowledge of your activities and can ask him to ramp up the pace too. So, he was mirroring what I was doing and there was no chance of a surprise attack.”

“That was a bit of a shame – but it is how it is. Really, I lost it in qualifying so I need to do a better job there and get together a perfect weekend like in Spain. I’ll move on now and look forward to Austria, where I have very good memories from last year with my win.”

Toto Wolff, Head of Mercedes-Benz Motorsport

“Today our guys on the pit wall did the perfect job managing the fine line between allowing the drivers to race each other and keeping the cars healthy so we made it to the finish. With no Safety Cars to spice up the action, we had a straight, flat-out fight between our two boys across 70 laps.

“Congratulations to Lewis for his win but also to Nico for such a strong drive; there were only fine margins between them in qualifying and in the race, and that rivalry pushes the whole team forward.”

“It was great to see Valtteri on the podium, too. A 1-2-3 for Mercedes power”
